In July, Alpha & Omega’s juggernaut second full-length album dropped via Bridge Nine. Drawing from the influence of hardcore mainstays such as Cro Mags and Integrity as well as crossover and metal like Crowbar and Metallica, the resulting sound is one that is 100 percent their own. No Rest, No Peace was also the first album the band wrote together; each song featuring input from every member. And with Chad Gilbert producing and Kyle Black recording, this record sounds tougher while more accessible than anything Alpha & Omega has done thus far. The band immediately headed out in support of the album with Terror. In short, it’s been an incredible year for Alpha & Omega, which included a lot of van time for music and movies.
