If you don''t know what "Suburban Apocalypse Blues" is, you need to get on board OMEGA TRAIN, with their new CD, THREE ALARM FIRE. It''s a crunchy mixture of freestyle bass grooves, hammer-like drums,and high energy blues and glam guitars served over angst-filled vocals of rage, sorrow, sarcasm and elation.
OMEGA TRAIN, originally known as Last Train Out, is a five-piece indie rock unit based in New Jersey that formed in the spring of 1990. The band performed in venues throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Tri-state area. They have recently reformed to independently release and promote CDs comprised of songs from that era and additional new material.
The solid rhythm section of this unit features the hard-hitting Danny Blaz on drums, Berklee College alumnus Bruce Leboff on bass and keyboards with veteran axe man Kenny Pelt on rhythm guitar. Lead guitarist Outlaw, a bar circuit icon in northeastern PA delivers the solo work, while the multi-octave Cobra adds his tenor and baritone vocals to the mix.
