the Skinny: Omega Crom is a Vancouver based metal band that has been part of the underground metal scene for many years. This Canadian act brings to the stage their own genre of “Ripping Metal”, a progressive blend of power metal with elements of aggressive death, shred and thrash. Omega Crom’s debut album Blood, Steel and Fire with Juno award winning producer/engineer Rob Shallcross (Strapping Young Lad, Zimmers Hole. GWAR. Darkest Hour, Fattooth) set to be released in 2010 on Reversed Records features guitar driven songs blended with diverse vocal styling from high falsetto wails, mid-range power to hardcore screams. Omega Crom seamlessly combine punchy rhythms, contrasting patches of melodic clean guitar, ripping solos, flowing harmonies, intense bass guitar attacks alongside relentless double kick thrash beats punctuated with inventive rolls and blast beats.
