Omean is a new project formed out of Covington, LA. Incorporating Blues elements with a slow and powerful Doom sound, Omean creates a unique quality that will tempt even the hardest of metal heads. Members include Ryan on vocals (current member of In Every Nightmare and former member of Zynk), Greg on guitar (former member of Organized Hostility and Drone and current member of Channel of Release), Eric on bass (former member of the Robert Fortune Band and current member of Channel of Release), and Brandon on drums.

So here is another Nola 504 and More Exclusive Download. Ryan, the vocalist is a good friend of mine. We've been friends since we were teenagers, and once I heard he was in a new band, I had to check it out. If you dig the New Orleans metal scene or sludge/doom in general this should be right up your alley. This was recorded live, but that doesn't hinder the overall sound at all. So be sure to check these guys out at Omean.net and on Myspace.
I originally started this blog with the intent to create an archive of New Orleans/Louisiana based bands demo's, EP's, full lengths and live recordings. My primary focus was to feature a little bit of everything going on in this great city. There are many bands past and present that have never gotten the recognition that they (in my opinion) truly deserved.
So I figured why not start converting all these demo tapes and etc. and share them with the world? But as I kicked the idea around on a few message boards and with friends, I decided to not just limit the page to Louisiana.
So here you will find artists from all across the globe, some may be well known, others may not. Here at Nola 504 and More, the Krewe and myself all have very unique musical tastes, which I think helps our page really stand out.
Yes, we may feature a lot of metal, but we also have punk, country, jazz, rockabilly, etc. Musical "gumbo" so to speak; meaning a little bit of everything. So, if you are/were in a band from Louisiana, or anywhere else in the world, and care to share it with the rest of the world, drop one of us an email. We'd love to check it out!
