In July 2016, ELLEFSON MUSIC PRODUCTIONS (aka EMP Label Group) and ALPHA OMEGA Management merged forces for a two-way partnership: ALPHA OMEGA Management entered EMP Label Group creating a new sub-label for upcoming artists, and, DAVID ELLEFSON (Megadeth bassist and founder of EMP Label Group) and THOM HAZAERT (Artist Manager, Music and Film Producer, A&R Director, Operations Manager at EMP Label Group) entered ALPHA OMEGA Management, to form a global partnership for management and booking.

The short-time goal and/or already in the works is to open offices in the former Soviet Union, United Kingdom and Asia, creating a global network.

ALPHA OMEGA is a full service management!

International ALPHA OMEGA Management was founded with the mission to meet the increasingly massive demand of the emerging and established bands to have a single agency, hence a single interlocutor (point of reference) to deal 360 degrees every aspect of their career. Our management team, by mutual agreement with the band, chooses the tailor made work plan according to actual needs, evaluating every aspect and at what stage is the artist’s career.

Said this, Alpha Omega Management is able to offer services of any type, as from artistic consulting of image, communication and promotion, and of all the technical aspects, live and studio performance, logistics of tours, bureaucracy, everything in order to speed up the natural process and evolution of the band.

Once the band has entered the roster we start the tailor made booking planning for support slots, shows, festivals and promotional tours.
