Evil officially has a soundtrack. And just like all evil things should, Scottish drone doomers, Ommadon took to the forest to conjure up riffs of pure evil from the witches who practice their occult black magic under dead evergreens. For real though, Ommadon did record their fifth album, V, in the woods, and if the album’s first track, “V1,” is any indication, this shit’s an oak tree.
