"Blood, Steel and Fire" was produced by Juno award winning producer / engineer Rob Shallcross (Strapping Young Lad, Zimmers Hole, GWAR, Darkest Hour, Fattooth) and features guitar driven songs blended with diverse vocal styling from high falsetto wails to mid-range power and hardcore screams.

These boys are all literally foaming at the mouth with hunger to rip and tear.
These Vancouver denizens of metal have received rave reviews for their live performances. They have shared the stage with such acts as Three Inches Of Blood, Zimmers Hole, Infernal Majesty, Into Eternity, Kataklysm, Stratovarius, Divinity, Hibria, Fattooth.

"It's safe to say featured band Omega Crom blew away everyone in the room, being far more intense and unique than anything experienced at the bigger show just prior. A heavy thrash / black metal amalgamation, these guys are ones to watch for." - Edmonton Sun
"Not afraid to play guitar or sing. Omega Crom were tight and very professional. They had excellent stage presence and actually announced their songs and interacted with the crowd. They had cool spoken word intros, lots of atmosphere created by interesting song arrangements and tempo changes. They were crushingly heavy and fast with tons of ripping solos, but the highlight was the vocals". - Metal-Rules.com
"Just a phenomenal vocalist. That, in conjunction with the band's overall matured, seasoned sense of confidence, amazing, energetic stage presence, and flawless tightness resulted in a performance that no-one in the room could ignore.' - MetalEater.com
