A rough-mix version of a new OMEN song, "Epitaph", is available for streaming on the band's MySpace page. The track comes off the band's forthcoming album, "Hammer Damage", which is tentatively due later in the year.
OMEN recently parted ways with singer George Call (also a member of the power metal band ASKA) and replaced him with Matt Story. OMEN mainman/guitarist Kenny Powell states, "[Matt] was the person that I wanted all along, [but] it was not possible because of other commitments. He has a great voice and has time to do the OMEN CD now. He has been here every time I have asked and busted his ass to three and four in the morning without a single complaint."
OMEN in 2008 released a live album, "Into the Arena: 20 Years Live", which contained previously unreleased recordings of the band's original lineup.
OMEN appeared at last year's Keep It True XII festival on April 24-25, 2009 at the Tauberfrankenhalle in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany.
OMEN 2011 is:
Kenny Powell - guitars
Andy Haas - bass
Matt Story - vocals
Wampa - drums
