Biography:Punto Omega was founded in 2002 in Buenos Aires/Argentina, after Pilgrim (programming, vocals and concepts) and Viator (lyrics and concepts), who worked together in other musical projects before, decided to form a band of their own combining EBM and Darkwave with orchestral and martial elements. They started to compose their first songs and when the first demo tracks were finished they had the chance to include them on an argentinian electro compilation CD where the name Punto Omega appeared officially for the first time.
Thomas Rainer of L'âme Immortelle also listened to them and introduced the band to the TRISOL MUSIC GROUP crew, who signed Punto Omega soon thereafter. Now equipped with a record contract, Punto Omega started to work on what would become their first album and remixed several bands like The Retrosic, Z Prochek, Project-X, Brüderschaft and L'âme Immortelle. Some of these remixes and their song called 'Punto Omega' were published in Europe for the first time on 'DJ Revelation 1' compilation.
On February 13th, 2004 their debut album entitled 'Punto Omega' was released worldwide as a stunning double CD digipak edition by TRISOL MUSIC GROUP including remixes by bands such as L'âme Immortelle, Angels & Agony, Lights of Euphoria, The Retrosic, Grendel, Run Level Zero, davaNtage, Sero.Overdose, Jesus Complex, Nuclear Noise, and the collaborations on guest vocals by Thomas Rainer (L'âme Immortelle) and Claus Bita (Cenobita) getting raving reviews in all major electro/gothic magazines and entitled as 'Newcomer of the Month' in Orkus, Sonic Seducer and Zillo (the 3 biggest alternative music magazines in Germany).
In june of the same year, the album was sold out. Because of this, Trisol Music Group decided to re-release it, but this time without the bonus remix CD. This album was also released by North America's leading Electro/Dark music label Metropolis Records (Apoptygma Berzerk, Front Line Assembly, Juno Reactor, KMFDM, Peter Murphy, etc.) for their territories. The following months, Punto Omega worked on remixes for the bands Aiboforcen (Belgium) and Kirlian Camera (Italy). Currently, the band is working on their new album and some remixes.
