Biography:If Lithium comes into contact with the skin, it can cause severe chemical burns. Lithium salts, on the other hand, are used to treat bipolar disorders, mania and depression. But these are by no means all of the applications of that chemical element with the atomic number 3, because in combination with Omega, the last letter of the Greek alphabet, Lithium forms an acoustic drug with a highly addictive quality:
This potion was concocted in 2007 by four talented alchemists in the small Croatian town of Umag – a musical no man's land where bands are rarely noticed by the outside world. Consequently, it was like a lottery win for Omega Lithium when the label, Drakkar Entertainment (Nightwish, Lordi, Letzte Instanz, among others) from Witten in Germany, listened up and offered to support the quartet in the international distribution of their aphrodisiac, which is even legal. Their penchant for chemical substances is also reflected by the title of their debut album, "Dreams In Formaline". Formalin is an aqueous solution, a mix of formaldehyde and methanol which is used to preserve bodies and anatomical and biological preparations.
Proceeding from this concept, the musicians from Croatia asked themselves what a person who has been preserved in formalin dreams: is there anything to conserve our thoughts and stop us from looking for more – to protect us and at the same time stop us from perceiving the real world? Is our reality only a formalin dream, after all?
Having said all that, the formidable self-confidence of the four musicians from Croatia is certainly justified, after all Omega Lithium see themselves as the heralds of a new era. "Music has a strong presence and has changed whole generations", Malice Rime reflects, hoping that his band's tracks will cause a new way of thinking and animate listeners to question things and take over responsibility for this ruined world we live in. Whichever way you look at it: Omega Lithium must be the first drug which can be recommended without reservations – with no known risks or side-effects!
