DESERT STORM – OMENS
(Hard Rock, Metal, Sludge, Stoner)
(Oxford, UK)

Desert Storm is:
Matthew Ryan – Vocals
Ryan Cole – Guitar
Chris White – Guitar / Bass / Keyboards / Backing Vocals
Elliot Cole – Drums
Chris Benoist – Bass

“Omens” a brand new opus crammed to the gills with their trademark mix of bombastic stoner rock , caustic sludge metal and hard heavy rock but also an album packed full of surprises………If you are coming to Desert Storm’s new album expecting more of the same sludgy heavy hard rock the band explored on “Sentinels” then you might be in for a rude awakening when you hear “Omens”. The band have opted for a more experimental and occasionally off-centre approach to their grooves this time around and its a approach that we at Desert Psychlist think has paid off.
