OMNIA plays "PaganFolk", a unique form of religious Pagan, Celtic and World
music in which Nature, the Living Planet and personal freedom of expression are
the main themes. The rather unusual hand-built acoustic instruments used by the band have been heard on countless Mittelalter, Celtic,Gothic, World and Fantasy festivals throughout Europe as well as during OMNIA's tour-performances in theatres and clubs in Holland and Germany.
OMNIA is a self made, self managed band with a definite message of anticommercialism and warning concerning the destruction of our environment by the human race. This message is brought to their audience by means of the music pieces themselves as well as the many texts, poems and speeches in between songs which take on the semblance of "preaching" by frontman and self proclaimed "pope of Paganism" Steve Sic.
Their live performances are (aside from their music) known for satirical humour,
visual richness and a very singular Anarchist approach to ancient European religion and musical tradition.
Despite the fact that they are a purely indie-underground band, unconnected with any of the standard record labels and the music industry, OMNIA has managed to win the respect of their peers and to capture the hearts and minds of audiences of all ages and musical preferences worldwide, inspiring many people to greater creativity and a deeper understanding of nature and of themselves.
Unlike most modern bands OMNIA is not merely a music-project to make money; to them it is a way of life and all their compositions express this lifestyle which becomes evident when you see and hear them play.

entertainment and shamanic seduction combined with political statements and
great, catchy handmade music of course. Their songs cover many genres,
languages and moods, but nevertheless there is always this Omnia spirit, that you can't withdraw. Once infected, always infected"- Sascha Blach, musician, producer, MA, Zillo Magazine Germany
