OM

OM

OM are a three piece experimental stoner band originally from San Francisco. Formed in 2003, they were initially known for being the first project involving Al Cisneros and Chris Hakius since Sleep's dissolution in 1997. While the nucleus of Om's sound is based in stoner metal, the band draws from a host of influences such as psychedelic rock, Middle Eastern Folk and post-rock among other sounds. The band's lyrics are heavily inspired by spirituality and various forms of religion, namely Eastern Orthodox and Middle Eastern variations.
