Omega Crom is a ripping metal band based out of Vancouver B.C. who bring to the stage progressive power metal and elements of aggressive shred and thrash.
"Everything we do we believe in giving people the type of metal that we grew up listening to. We believe music has the power to bring people together and put the listener into the direct state of the performer. We believe that metal taps into a transcendental framework that can be channeled into a moment. We make our metal with our blood, steel & fire, with the power of our souls and bring it to the stage creating that moment. We play metal because it's what we have done for over 21 years. We do it because we are creating memories to share with friends old & new. It's the only game in town for old school guys like us and we will play metal until we die."
This heavy band takes a note from Robert E. Howard's "Conan the Barbarian" making its metal the stuff of legend. The music is forged into a primary directive to move the listener and take you on a journey of highs and lows. Feeling everything from adrenalized battle rush to sonorous dreamscapes and alien time schemes.
Omega Crom is a one-guitar monster featuring Johnny Ketlo on vox and guitar, Colin Furness on drums, and Sylvain Maltais on bass. Celine Derval of Scythia is sometimes featured as a guest vocalist.
