OM formed in 2003 when former Sleep
members Al Cisneros and Chris Hakius began to play again after a six
year hiatus. The two began rehearsing without the addition of guitar or
other instruments. OM's first three albums feature Cisneros
(bass/vocals) and Hakius (drums).
In January 2008 Hakius left
the group. Cisneros recruited drummer Emil Amos and in March of 2008 OM
recorded a 7" for Sub Pop records. The song "Gebel Barkal" is the first
to feature Amos on drums.
The band's live performances are of a
devotional nature. Their 2007 concert in the city of Jerusalem spanned
over five and a half hours. Cisneros' unmistakable chants address
processes of mind, psychic reality, astral and causal planes of being,
and the nature of the soul.
