With the incredible success of the first OMA show, plans began shortly thereafter to bring together the bands and the fans for yet another installment of this unforeseen Orlando METAL event. At this time in Orlando METAL history, the barriers were being knocked down, band and fans support for one another were making a dramatic and noticeable impact on local clubs and events. This time around, the fans had an even bigger impact on the winners of each award by voting online, as well as band support promoting the OMA like no other show before it. Both nights were simply two of the best nights ever in Orlando METAL history, as those who were there would attest.

Relive the experience below!
