Hong Kong: American magazine Rolling Stone has revealed that Omekron was not only the name of a new variant of Corona virus but also a music band of the same name in Hong Kong.
While not a groundbreaking contribution to the genre, Rock Music has a long way to go. The Omicron band belonged to the ‘Progressive Metal’ type bands. These types of bands create new melodies from a fusion of rock and heavy metal music.
The Omicron Band, composed by four friends, singer Lee Hang Chen, keyboardist Tyler Ewing, drummer Alex Bedwell, and synthetic guitarist Adam Robertsha, was very popular at Hong Kong concerts from 2014 to 2016.
He also intended to launch an album, but due to his responsibilities and financial problems, he left the band in 2016 and moved to different countries.
However, when a new variant of the corona virus was named ‘Omekron’ last week, a fan of the band remembered him while praising the Omekron band in his social media post.
The news soon reached Li Hang China, who now lives in Australia and teaches in a secondary school.
Coincidentally, he and the rest of his team had been in contact for the past year to relaunch their band and launch an album, during which time they had recorded in the studio and collected some of their own songs.
Seizing the opportunity, China posted parts of some of its songs on YouTube:
“Right or wrong, I don’t argue with that. But it did a great job promoting our band and the next album, “China told a Rolling Stone correspondent with a laugh.
