OMEN guitarist, Kenny Powell, is scheduled to appear at the "Up The Hammers" warm up show/party on Friday, April 20th, at the Underworld in Athens, Greece.
Powell will be appearing with the Epic Greek Metal Masters, BattleRoar, where he is scheduled to perform with them on at least one classic Omen song, as well as the BattleRoar tune, "Megaloman", for which Powell provided the guitar solos.
Work continues on the Omen live CD. Tentatively titled, "Into The Arena", the cd will feature live versions of classic Omen tunes, all of which have never been released. The recordings span over twenty years of live performances including the JD Kimball era through the current Omen line-up. The release will also feature several bonus tracks including instrumental versions of classic songs and unreleased studio cuts. The CD is scheduled to be released in early summer and will be the first on Powell's newly formed label.
According to unconfirmed reports, yesterday's (July 5) first day of Athens Open Air festival in Athens, Greece was a near-disaster, as only four out of the six scheduled bands performed (there was no official word on what happened to DIMMU BORGIR, one of the two acts that failed to play at the event). In addition, there was a three-hour delay and tons of sand and remarkably "poor" stage lights and sound at the festival site (Aloimos beach). The second day of the festival, which was supposed to take place today (with scheduled performers including IN FLAMES, ANTHRAX, CHILDREN OF BODOM, PAIN OF SALVATION, KATATONIA and BATTLEROAR), is unofficially said to have been cancelled. No further information is currently available.
