OMS is a hard hitting rock band with dark heavy grooves, an in your face approach, and a completely original sound to top off this trio. The influences this band has encountered comes from bands such as Ill Repute, Dr. Know, Rage Against the Machine, Tool, Fugazi, Helmet, Quicksand, and the whole Seattle scene that hit with bands such as Pearl Jam and Alice and Chains. Many bands played a part in what we now create, concentrating on being ourselves while believing that every artist has a different sound then the one before or after him or her. Originality is what drives this band to create. Starting the band like most wasn't easy when in the beginning singer/bassist Jeff Samuelson had moved to Las Vegas for work reasons in 97 and then traveling back and forth from his home town Simi Valley, CA. to meet Rob Lutz guitarist for jam sessions. Knowing that something special had been created a move was inevitable. Approximately in 2001 the real creation began between the two and while hunting for a drummer to complete this trio the band was able to completely write 8 songs in 8 weeks. After nearly 7 yrs. and 6 drummers the band found Matt Tapley which has been the most stable drummer the band has had as well as completing the trio. OMS thrives on playing everywhere and anywhere claiming this is what drives the band. Critics and fans alike have a hard time believing this power trio delivers such a loud and full sound. Old Man Syndrome wanting the people to take this blast of reality.

OLD MAN SYNDROME Get Bent CD review

Despite what the band's name might suggest, this four-song EP actually sounds kinda fresh. Jeff Samu...Despite what the band's name might suggest, this four-song EP actually sounds kinda fresh. Jeff Samuelson's vocals are somewhat indistinctive, sure, but OMS' songs are better-constructed and catchier- not to mention more fun-than Vegas' typical hard rock-fare, with the group's tight efficiency helping it escape the world of radio-aimed faux-aggro.- Aaron Thompson
Our typical set list is any where from 30 minutes to 45 minutes when dealing with smaller venues. We have enough songs to create a 2hr. set . Playing songs such as Green, The Feds, Dilema, Mamasan, 101, Dedication, Business, and Car head just to name some that we are playing in our sets at this time. We thrive on originallity. We believe that being original means original.
There are no upcoming dates at this time.
