All Things in Place
Main Entry: OMENUS Pronunciation: ä-men-us Function: Proper Noun Definitions: 1. Something powerful, this way comes... 2. A good omen, brought forth through music. 3. An alternative rock band from Long Beach, California, formed when four friends got together with the same vision in mind: create music that is inventive, interesting, thoughtful, and expressive. Omenus brings a distinct sound that is all their own to the Alternative Rock scene. They explode on stage with unequaled intensity, earning Omenus the respect and admiration of fellow musicians and music lovers alike. While their recently released album 'All Things in Place' captures much of the band's high-quality sound and energy, the bar is raised in a live performance setting. Their remarkably energetic live shows have earned Omenus a rapidly growing legion of devoted fans, along with a reputation as one of the best live shows around. While Omenus as a whole is amazing, it is purely the collective sum of it's talented individual members. Drew, the group's vocalist, adds a commanding edge to the heartfelt lyrics and brings the welcomed vocals of a true singer; an often missing facet of bands in this genre. Sean, the band's skilled guitarist, adds a powerful range of emotion to the mix, as he seemingly speaks from his heart through his guitars. Anthony provides the soul of the group, bringing energetically haunting bass lines to life. Kaz, with his unstoppable drumbeats, adds a solid foundation to the band and can captivate any audience during a solo. The foursome has used their extensive studies of music theory, similar viewpoints, and outlooks on life to attain a balance between technical ability and emotion rarely seen in other commercial bands. Omenus plays music that is certainly right for today, but has the ability to fluctuate with the ebb and flow of the general music population's ever-changing taste. Like many great bands, Omenus has the enormous potential to alter people's thoughts and views, and impact a generation. They don't play just for eternal fame and glory (though they certainly deserve it); they play because it's a part of them - a part of their souls.
