The "New Band To Burn One To" today is Omean.
Omean are a band from New Orleans that recently formed in October. Members include Ryan (former vocalist of Zync and In Every Nightmare), Greg (former guitarist of Organized Hostility and Drone), Steve (former guitarist of The Oggin), Eric (former member of the Robert Fortune Band), and Brandon on drums. The band has some tunes up on their MySpace page to check out and are currently in the studio working on their first full-length.
My 2 Cents:
Imagine yourself stuck in the bowels of a Louisiana swamp with Satan grabbing at your ankles trying to pull you down to hell. That is the feeling you get when listening to Omean. The band provides some pretty chilling down-tempo grooves along with bellowing throaty vocals for a compelling listen.
