Looking back now, it's difficult to articulate the significance and importance of what the orlando METAL awards had become. As the third installment of this annual event, the OMA had by this time developed a reputation for being the most anticipated event of the year. Bands and fans from all over the state attended both nights of "Beer Drinkin' and Head Bangin'" in what has since become a legendary show in the annuls of Florida Metal History.

Although this was the last installment of the awards, the jury remains out as to if there will ever be another OMA show. When the stars align, and the time is right, lookout! Another OMA show could be creeping up behind you!
