Long-running US power metallers Omen have parted ways with vocalist George Call (who also sings in US power metal band Aska).

Commented Omen mainman/guitarist Kenny Powell: "I loved George singing for Omen and I have great respect for him. However, I made a commitment to Omen and myself three years ago to try and do the final three Omen records equal to the first three. I was 53 at the time, I am now 56 and want to accomplish every thing possible before my skills start to diminish. At this rate I will get my first social security check before I finish a new Omen record. It is simply not acceptable for me to wait any longer... At this point in time I must put Omen above anything else.

The new record is finally moving forward, and the great thing for me is that it is going to be even better than I thought possible. Matt Story is doing the vocals. He was the person that I wanted all along, but it was not possible because of other commitments. He has a great voice and has time to do the Omen CD now. He has been here every time I have asked and busted his ass to three and four in the morning without a single complaint.

I honestly feel that Hammer Damage will shock the metal world. Look for the new CD by early spring, and then we can start touring again. I think Greece should be the first stop!"
