    Posted: January 26 2010 at 17:03

CONFIRMED.The original line-up of Spanish symphonic prog band OMNI is back: MICHAEL STARRY (guitars, synths), SALVADOR VELEZ (guitars, synths), MARIO BOCANEGRA (drums, percussion), JUAN RIOS (guitars, synths) and JOSE LUIS ALGABA (bass).

This means that this band never stops staging inside revolutions after each album. Before teh second aniversary of their amazing sophomore release "El Vals De Los Duendes", the OMNI line-up suffered an epic crisis that involved some desertions, an official break-up followed by a partial reformation two weeks later. What happened was that two founding members were out of the renewed line-up and the keyboardist and the drummer who had left the band before the break-up returned.
 
And so, slowly but with great inventiveness and energy, "Sólo Fue Un Sueño" was conceived, recorded and released. The album gained much acclaim, being the best OMNI album so far.
 
... But now, all four founding members are back, together with the rhythm guitarist who joined for the "Sólo Fue Un Sueño" album.
 
The band is working on new material: hopefully, their new repertoire will be more consistent than the line-ups.

The best of lucks for OMNI!!
