Omen Stones “self titled”

RVA band Omen Stones stagger out boldly with this riff power fest self titled release. Holding strong with the long time music vet Erik Larson on drums, joined by Ed Fierro on bass and Tommy Hamilton on guitar, vocals Omen Stones stay in the pocket. Strong riffs, great solid anchor rhythm section made interesting and appealing with the unique vocals of Hamilton. Stand outs for me include “Black Cloud” and “Flowers”. These guys are really cool, I was won over immediately. RVA brings it strong with some cool sounds lately, don’t miss out on these guys. The omen stones have been tossed on the stage and grimly read the riffage has begun and will carry on. For fans of ATP, Karma To Burn, Vitus, Sunshine and very early Soundgarden.
