11th January 2022 0 By John Deaux

Celebrating 40 years of post punk goodness, Theatre Of Hate finally get an immense box set. There’s 22 unreleased tracks along with Kirk Brandons solo album Stone In The Rain (which was released outside of the UK as a Theatre Of Hate LP.

Featured in the box is a beautiful glossy booklet which contains a brand new interview with frontman Kirk Brandon.

Omens is a massive collection of Theatre Of Hate and a perfect introductory package for those who have been meaning to delve into their music and for those who are already familiar. 

The unreleased tracks are worthy of a purchase alone. Especially the instrumental version of Murder , it’s insanely good. 

As you would expect, this compendium features a fair few remasters and of course is put together by the band, so you know it’s of the highest quality possible. 

Score 9/10
