Omnium Gatherum drop music video for cover of 80’s hit “Maniac”

Author Flavia Andrade - 12.4.2023

Omnium Gatherum have released a cover of Michael Sembello‘s “Maniac“, a track famous for its role on the soundtrack of “Flashdance”, the 1983 feature film starring Jennifer Beals. Jukka Pelkonen, frontman of the Finnish band, said about the track:

This classic pop song is shapeshifting into the Omnium Gatherum style of modern melodic death metal blast. Here is something to dance and headbang to in summertime!

Guitarist/vocalist Markus Vanhala added:

I heard it from the start with this classic ’80s banger — that it had all the usual OG elements there. Our band just had to play this and turn this into an OG song! Get your upcoming summer spiced with this one and it’s gonna be a good one!
