Biography

BROMS is the rock band founded by bassist/vocalist/organist and composer

Ed Broms, after 20+ years of exploring every frontier of music. These

explorations have taken him from performances with the likes of

avant-gardists Cecil Taylor, John Zorn and Mat Maneri to blues legend

Eddie Kirkland to Bulgarian dance bands to the concert stages and

cathedrals of America, and of course, stints with all manner and variety

of rock bands. After developing a distinctive voice in many different

styles of music, and taking a five year spirit-quest in which he was

ordained a Vedantan Priest, he decided to focus his efforts on the most

powerful music he could find: ROCK.

The debut self-titled CD from BROMS, was recorded at New Alliance

Studios in Boston, MA in 1998 and features equally accomplished

personnel: drummer Jordan Cohen (former percussionist with POWERMAN 5000

), guitarist Crick Diefendorf (with New Orleans-styled jazz band Made in

the Shade), with guest guitarist Paul Mascott (composer of the musical

DROP), and Producer Mudrock (POWERMAN5000/DREAMWORKS; GODSMACK/UNIVERSAL

).

The name BROMS, taken from the Swedish word for horse fly, the kind with

a nasty bite, fits the music appropriately. The music hits you with

hellfire and brimstone and Satyagraha: the force of Truth.
