THE OMNIFIC: ‘THE LAW OF AUGMENTING RETURNS’ ALBUM INTERVIEW

Australian Musician was first introduced to bass-centric band The Omnific when they performed on the CMC Music stand at the Melbourne Guitar Show many years ago. They’ve come along way since, touring Europe on numerous occasions and now delivering their 4th album, ‘The Law Of Augmenting Returns’. They’ve also opened for Polyphia and The Hu recently and played a huge overseas tour with Ne Obliviscaris. They are off to Europe again in August and will return home for a big run of Australian shows, which will be officially announced soon.

‘The Law Of Augmenting Returns’ explores the notion that the more effort you invest in your artistry, the greater the rewards you reap. This powerful trinity of bass and drums pushed their creative boundaries to unprecedented heights; a tremendous body of work transpired, traversing the intense, the emotionally charged, and the humorous, appealing to a wide range of musical palates.

Australian Musician editor Greg Phillips spoke to The Omnific’s Matt Fack via zoom, to chat about the new album ‘The Law Of Augmenting Returns’, touring, gear and more.

MORE ABOUT THE OMNIFIC
The Omnific is a breathtaking progressive instrumental trio, hailing from Melbourne, Australia. Following the release of three groundbreaking EPs – ‘Sonorous’ (2016), ‘Kismet’ (2017), ‘The Minds Eye’ (2019) – the band attracted interest, and fans from all corners of the globe. Their 2021 debut album ‘Escapades’ achieved international critical acclaim – landing #3 on the Australian AIR Independent Album Charts, and cementing their status as torchbearers of the next generation of progressive rock and metal. Clay Gober of Polyphia featured on the single ‘Antecedent’, exceeding a combined 1 million plays on YouTube & Spotify. In 2023, the group went from strength to strength; supporting Polyphia in Australia, and Ne Obliviscaris in Europe and North America, capping off with a landmark 46-date world tour in support of single ‘Phat Mackerel’ – including festivals Euroblast (DE), Reeperbahn (DE), and Bigsound (AU). The group kickstarted 2024 with Mongolia’s The HU in Australia, profiling their outrageous musical versatility – which dives through prog, metal, djent, funk, synth-driven soundscapes, and more. The Omnific have also toured with renowned artists such as Between The Buried And Me, Intervals, Galactic Empire, Twelve Foot Ninja, and Cog.
