Yet another band that takes the image of thrash metal to an almost hilarious extreme (complete with toplessness, spikes and studs, bullet belts, tight leather pants and cheesy poses), Omission released their debut full length album, Thrash Metal is Violence in 2009, and receiving reissue treatment by Xtreem Music a short year later, with 2 bonus tracks.

The 4 second album opener, Bestial Belch, featuring a grotesque burp with the sound of a cocking gun in the background is but a prelude of the insanity to follow. Do not be fooled by the introductory track, however, into thinking that Omission aren't serious in their music, as the rest of the album goes on to prove.

On to the music proper then. Omission's music is a melodic brand of thrash metal, and while the speedy passages are common fare in thrash metal, the band includes melodic guitar solos on their songs (unlike the mindless shredding that most thrash bands like to utilise). For example, solos on songs such as the closing track V.P.A. are tasteful and carefully thought out. The band however pays homage to the pioneers of thrash metal on songs such as Traitor and Satanic Speed Thrash Metal, where the intro riffs are reminiscent of bands such as Slayer, with the latter reminding listeners of the first few moments of Angel of Death. Songs such as Pure Fucking Hate up the entertainment value of the album with anthemic, fist-pumping choruses.

Vocalist Miguel's style lean more towards black metal shrieks, sounding like a cross between Bestial Mockery's Master Motorsåg and 3 Inches of Blood's Cam Pipes. Songs like Legions of Youth also include haunting laughs that send chills down the listener's spine, littered throughout the song. The instrumentalSatanic Speed Thrash Metal, while not as fast as one would have expected it to be (since there are other tracks that are way faster than this), display the band's technical abilities, with the drummer adding interesting drum fills on slower or quieter parts of the song. The bass is also not neglected on the album, as evident from the constant heavy presence, and also the intro bass riff on Primitive Instinct. While nothing particularly flamboyant, displays the importance of the bass on Omission's music.

The live tracks (which also includes an introductory speech about the band), features 2 tracks from their V.P.A. demo, and gives listeners a good sense about the live capabilities of the band, though vocalist Miguel sounds more abrasive live than in studio. The guitars on Northmen Wrath also sounded a bit messy, especially towards the faster bits of the solo, causing the experience to become slightly less enjoyable.

With Thrash Metal is Violence, Omission joins the ranks of the increasing number of bands that have reverted to the old-school way of playing thrash metal, fast and furious, and not forgetting the overt satanic imagery. Recommended for fans of bands such as Morbid Carnage and black/thrash metal in general.
