Formed in the late 80's and gained notoriety in the early 90's by playing underground shows and having participated in the compilation "Screams from the Underground" where original members Ramir (vox/gtr), Rheetyard (drums) and Fishbone (bass). The band then released their debut self titled full length record otherwise known as" the black cat record" where the single "Maling Sistema" went on full rotation in the now- defunct radio station LA105. Several line up changes went on throughout the 90's but the band steadily played shows and kept on releasing seminal punk records "Sell Out" and "We're Back" as well as several compilations on Middle Finger Records. Original drummer Rheetyard went on to form NSA, which released numerous recordings on cassette bearing different meanings of the band's acronym while 2nd gen vocalist Ab went on to other projects like Dear Dingo.
Forward to 2000's, original member Fishbone enlisted NoFuckingMorals vocalist/ guitarist Albert Ascona to take on the vocal duties for the band, the band also recruited Archie Nepomuceno on bass, but didnt made it to the record. Bad Omen, recruited former Mga Anak ngTupa drummer Tristan Gagolinan and college friend Albert Sy on Bass. The band gathered full steam and recorded the full length CD "God Is Everywhere", a record that took almost 10 years to make. The band played local shows non-stop. In 2009, the group embarked on their 1st Southeast Asian mini tour and hit Singapore and Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.
Bad Omen have wrapped up their tour in Indonesia, thus completing the southeast circuit.
The band released their latest album "Unite and Fight" on March 2012, still under Middle Finger Records.
