New Omerta album review ‘Knowledge Quest The Ugly Struggle’ volume 1

" I was reading a lot preparing to start an album. I wanted it to be my journey through life music and book."

” I was reading a lot preparing to start an album. I wanted it to be my journey through life music and book.” Omerta

Sup my undergrounders!! Got some new heat out of the UK hip hop scene, for y’all to peep with your ear holes. Just got the advance copy of the new album Knowledge Quest ‘The Ugly Struggle’ volume 1 by Omerta. The album is the first part of a planned trilogy of albums from Omerta which will all be made available for free downloading. It has been heavily inspired by Omerta’s life journey and also off of the Robert Anton Wilson book series the ‘Cosmic Trigger Trilogy. If your new to Omerta here’s his story. He began in the battle scene but felt drained and never liked it. So he began doing shows and building up his reputation as an emcee for a bit. Until finally he decided to buckle down and focus on creating his album. Hes spent many year in studios. He soon discovered his deep love of performing shows and penning bars brought him great satisfaction. Once he shifted his focus on his album his creativity could be properly channeled. Here in Omertas own words are what led up to Knowledge Quest ‘The Ugly Struggle’ volume 1

“The knowledge quest is my mate Joe Bruce’s concept. He fed me some documentaries and shit while I was reading a lot preparing to start an album. I wanted it to be my journey through life music and book. The album is the last 10 years of my life as well as a lot of ideas theory’s and shit that I pondered on. The line between reality and fantasy gets crossed a few times and some theory’s in there are flawed possibly. But that’s what I come across in my quest for knowledge! I will be doing another two albums and they will all be free downloads. Knowledge Quest ‘The Ugly Struggle’ volume 1 is called that because the struggle in this album was ugly and  still is ugly. It’s ain’t glamorous with a pretty ending but who’s life is when you’re broke.”

 

Album Review

  The album Knowledge Quest ‘The Ugly Struggle’ volume 1 immediately dives into a metaphysical vibe. With songs and skits which subject matter dives into many deep topics. From societies humanity being lost to scientific advancements in a ever quickening modern world. From the hierarchical governments covertly being manipulated by secret societies. Using sci-ops and false information to control the masses to create a fascist type regime. Somewhat invisible to the majority of society. From astral plane traveling to finding spiritiual knowledge of ourselves. These are some of the themes you will hear in this release. Knowledge Quest ‘The Ugly Struggle’ volume 1 takes the listener on a journey where the very spiritual essence of man struggles to find answers while trying to navigate in our quest for self improvement. Facing these pitfalls with just our wits to guide us on our path to achieve enlightenment in a world filled with darkness.

The tone of the verses are often quite melancholy and address these issues. In my opinion trying to challenge the audience to become aware of the imperceptible spiritual laws and entities around us. Whilst bettering our own path in life and changing the world surrounding us to realize such spiritual growth.  The beats on here are quite unique and coalesce nicely with the verses. This is not a typical boom bap style album. Its loaded with tribal drums, tinny piano, eerie vocal samples, dreary violin samples and thought provoking skits.

I enjoyed this album a lot but depending on the genre of hip hop your into, some may not like it or understand its real potential and genius. Its not for fans who are looking for pop sounding records or typical 90’s style boom bap based hip hop. For me this is what makes Knowledge Quest ‘The Ugly Struggle’ volume 1 album stand out amongst so many other releases. Its a thought provoking album filled with many talented emcees and producers. London Underground recommends that if your looking for some innovative music that challenges your intellect yet satisfies your ears at the same time. Look no further. Be sure to get your free download of  Knowledge Quest ‘The Ugly Struggle’ volume 1   when that lands. Check the track list below to see the heavy lineup that came together in the crafting of this album.
