The first full-length PaganFolk album EVER produced by SteveSic AND Jenny TOGETHER way back in 2004!
"CRONE of WAR" is a milestone in OMNIA history. This album truly kickstarted the worldwide PaganFolk scene and put OMNIA into the forefront of a rapidly expanding movement of Musick, Lifestyle and NatureWorship.

After many years, many reprints (and many, many more new albums) the OMNIA catalogue of CD's was getting too large to manage for Stenny, so "Crone of War" was taken out of production (to great sadness of many fans).
Now, after much time has passed since it originally went into circulation, the OMNIA story has gotten much bigger and it seemed unfair to withold this jewel of early PaganFolk musick from the public. That is why "Crone of War" will be re-released so that OMNIA fans everywhere (old and new) can get to enjoy this ancient collector's item in the same pure state it was in as the first day it was recorded.

Apart from the very original OMNIA musick contained on this disc (songs that have become classics in their own right) ,the high-end production/recording technique used to make this CD is unique aswell!
Crone of war was recorded using only 2 very special hand-built microphones full of rainbows of crystals connected to a very complicated set up of even more crystals and equipment to keep the emotion and clarity of the pieces and the performance intact. The soundfiles have never been "compressed", "mastered", "auto-tuned" or artificially altered in any way, giving the most honest, pure and "true to life" sound possible (a special process developed by the eccentric recording genius Norbert Veel in Holland).

Now, Finally EVERYBODY can own this truly classic OMNIA CD for a normal price, which up until now had only been available second-hand through expensive collector's sites untill there were no more left...

Old PaganFolk or New PaganFolk, OMNIA's musick is timeless enjoyment that remains forever fresh!


PS: OMNIA-"CRONE OF WAR" will be available from Our webshop, Our live-merch during the OMNIA "Celtic World" theatretour and through Record Stores, I-tunes, Spotify etc from the 1ST OF FEBRUARI 2018

PPS: In case you wonder what others thought of this groundbreaking album, here are some Reviews from various collector's sites:

"OMNIA's magnum opus. Musicianship is excellent on this album, the tracks are well balanced and varied and instantly transport you to the forests of long lost Celtic tribes. And the recording is beautiful and should serve as a reference for all audiophilia-inclined types"

"Once your heart stops beating wildly, you'll find yourself listening to the cd over and over again."

"This cd is brilliant. It has moments of truly pure, serene beauty conveyed through the music and it has moments of primal savage nature in the music. It is by far one of the best cds I own and I never tire of listening to it. Words don't even do it justice."

"Impeccable musicianship, transporting the listener to the Iron Age in Europe but with a perspective that could only come from the present. Each time I listen to this, I am mesmerized by OMNIA's unique creativity."
