"Red White... And Wrath" is the new double-format, conceptual-themed work by The American band from Fort Lauderdale, Ornimental. Founded in 2010 and with the EP "Powernerve" (2011) and the debut "Ornimental" (2017) in its locker, the quartet currently formed by brilliant guitarist and versatile singer Danny Perry, guitarist Ariel Barrientos, drummer Joel Hernandez and bassist Emilio Martine, dance in its second long run the wide spectrum of alternative metal with influences ranging from Slipknot to Five Fingers Punch Death, bullet for my valentine and deftones, as well as the confines of grunge and groove metal. Amid so much sound vehemence, there is also time for the band to introduce melody-filled and uncompcomposed fragments of pop tints, jazz rhythms and influences of musical classicism.
"Red White... And Warth" is a long and dense album, with half of themes composed of narrated interacts that, while helping to cohesive the story of the protagonist who is immersed in a state of madness caused by drugs, subtract dynamism from a listening that extends to an hour and a half. Some of these tracks are narrates with veiled musical motifs while others approach the radionovela format.
Supernova is a fantastic Instrumental Cut inspired by Eruption by the recently deceased Eddie Van Halen followed by Mortality with an inclement drums, a fast guitar line, powerful backing vocals before the fabulous chorus and a central fragment of Queen's pompous heir grandiloquence. Invincible possesses a dense cadence, Always has a choppy rhythm and a few second voices giving the replica to the main one on the bridge before the mellow main verse and Silver Lining starts with a typically grunge drums, a distressed voice and clean chords until the change of rhythm full of fury and wild guitars.
All American Fury starts with a devastating syncopated rhythm and incorporates a jazz leak after another of those long instrumental developments that guitarists give us, while Call To The Sky is essentially a deliciously dirty and thrashera track.
Escape With Me - with a central part illuminated by Metallica's The Unforgiven - and Blood combine various thesituras into bridges and choruses with an irresistible groove aroma, which takes shape in Generation Corruption,where - except for the testimonial reference to Disturbed in its first bars - the great admiration of these boys for Pantera and the definitive riffs of the defunct Dimebag Darrell becomes evident.
Gregorian chants open Love Thy Enemy,a song with a deep riff and a memory of the less classical sound of Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield's, Where Have You Gone? hides a duet between Perry's impossed voice and another female, and Seize The Day's melancholy tone closes the album with acoustic chords and subtle percussion details.
With "Red White... And Wrath," recorded at prestigious Morrisound Studios, Floridans have given birth to a brave, daring, exuberant and detailed work that just by bringing together some of these features should be widely recommended. Meritorious work! - Rocka Rolla Web Zine

"Being a heavy supporter of local music, I am still baffled how this band has flown under my radar for so long. Well, this was my virgin foray into what Ornimental had to offer and found myself absolutely mesmerized. Their sound is very heavy at times with times of clean atmosphere, providing the listener with a tasteful and flowing direction of music and lyrical intent. The set included “ Escape With Me ”, “ Black Sabbath ”, “ Encage ” and “ Love Thy Enemy ” which accurately showcases the outright talent of individual players and how well they play together. The accurate and speedy feet of the drummer Julio Garcia along with the chorded and/or slap style bass lines of Sully provide a strong foundation for the impossibly complex guitar work and semi-clean and clean vocals of Ariel and Danny to navigate. In the middle of the show, Danny Perry even took five minutes to “noodle” on his axe. Noodle? Whatever… This man is a monster! A polished, five minute solo interspersed with Van Halen and Dime is “noodling” most guitarists would aspire to play within any song on stage. That being said, all members have great stage presence and administer bone crushing music that engages and entertains as well, if not better than any band I have seen. Ornimental being one of the two bands I had not had the pleasure of hearing before, definitely gained at least one big fan very quickly! Super freaking band!" - Odyssey, Metal Nexus
