Omega Man - s/t MCD

While Florida bands like Morning Again and Culture got a lot of attention, other awesome Florida bands stayed fairly obscure and underrated, such as Omega Man from Tampa. I don't know why tho, Omega Man was every bit as great as them. Maybe it's cuz they weren't as prolific and their sound was less polished? In any case, Omega Man deserves more recognition... Formed out of the ashes of another underrated band, Scrog, Omega Man stayed around long enough to contribute to a couple of compilations and self-release a MCD, in 1997. A year later, No! Records out of California re-released that MCD, which is the copy I have (and yes, I'm still looking for the self-released version in case anybody wants to part with it!). Lyrically the band touches upon their straight edge background, but also topics such as domestic violence and rape culture. Oh, and if you're someone who enjoys samples with their metalcore, Omega Man is just the band for you!
