WHAT WE DO.
For us the Band is “Priority Number One” and therefore ALPHA OMEGA was formed!
In ALPHA OMEGA Management we believe that the concept of the collaboration instead of competition will change the whole idea of band management, for the first time in history of music industry, under the shape of a real worldwide management network! We call this “MANAGEMENT 3.0”!
And all this is just the top of the iceberg!
ALPHA OMEGA Management is composed by professionals, working in various sectors of the music industry, including ALEX AZZALI, internationally well-known producer, tour manager and or sound engineer (for Ancient, Behemoth, Dismember, Grave, Septicflesh, Rotting Christ, Cro Mags, Marduk, Hate, Vader and many more), BILL METOYER (Producer of Slayer, W.A.S.P, D.R.I, Corrosion of Conformity, Fates Warning, Helstar, Omen, Thrust etc. and ex Vice President of Metal Blade USA).
We have collaborations in different continents with several promoters and agencies. This is why our bands are constantly on tour.
In May 2019, ALPHA OMEGA Management had a pleasure to announce PAUL ALLENDER (DiAmorte, White Empress, former Cradle of Filth) and his Era Horrificus Productions entering ALPHA OMEGA Team! With Paul and Era Horrificus ALPHA OMEGA increments its services in the USA to guide bands and artists to their next level, or whatever they want from their music. Through this partnership ALPHA OMEGA Management will help worldwide many artists and musicians gain their full potential.
In March 2019, ALPHA OMEGA Launched New Format Record Label: ALPHA OMEGA Records! Promotion first of all, a real one, through our worldwide management network! It’s an alliance of some of the most active entities of the web and the real world # for example: METALHEADS FOREVER, TOVAR Music Group, alongside some of the strongest Facebook groups (at the moment almost 3 millions subscribers, in all)! Promotion, like ours is a joint venture of many cool realities participating to the success of the communication through the channels where the real die hard fans and the real professionals are going.

In August 2018, ALPHA OMEGA Management had a pleasure to announce the worldwide partnership with TOVAR Music Group, (aka TMG), welcoming John Tovar (former long time manager of MARILYN MANSON) and his “right hand” Eyal Perelmuter to the Alpha Omega Team! John is well-known for his long and impressive career in the music business. Alpha Omega’s Alex Azzali stated: “Since our first contact, the synergy between our entities was clear, we share the same idea that the concept of collaboration instead of competition is the winning key of band management. We are convinced that our alliance will bring incredible things to all the bands in both rosters and our future projects!”
In February 2018, ALPHA OMEGA Management announced transformation into a real worldwide network, probably the first-ever one! It’s composed by hundreds and hundreds of collaborators throughout the world, coordinated by our management team. We call it “Management Network”! The main goal is to bring together the interests of all the professional figures related to worldwide music business! Entering to this new reality is METALHEADS FOREVER, a real army of potential management team members, providers of services, users of services, literally from all over the world, led by David Maloney!”
In June 2017, ALPHA OMEGA launched the new service branch, dedicated to the needs and interests (Booking, media, communication, promotion) of session musicians and solo artists.

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.
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.
Consultation throughout the contract period, optimizing the band’s budget between different aspects and decisions on how to proceed and which direction to take in massive promotion. Once the band has entered the roster we start the tailor made booking planning for support slots, shows, festivals and promotional tours. Besides our own ALPHA OMEGA Tours, we are in collaboration with the best global promoters and event/tour productions, promoters and clubs. This collaboration, on regular basis, offers to our bands the best conditions and the best promotion.
ALPHA OMEGA Recording Residential Studios – at the Lake of Como (near Milano-Italy) – can boast a very strong experience and their extensive list of well-known clients – offering world-level recording, mixing and mastering. For those bands who can not come and be guests in our two appartments of the studios, our producers are always willing to travel or to receive files from around the world to mix and master. Please do not forget, also our Mr. Bill Metoyer, in person, is one of our available Producers.
ALPHA OMEGA is starting a merchandise company, for such kind of questions, please contact us for more information and check the Merch-section on our website.
Of course we have many conventions with all kinds of professionals to meet the needs of Endorsements, stage outlook/show production, Photosessions and Videoclip setups. etc.
Since we are coordinating quite surely the largest management network in the world, we are sure that only we can offer something like this at such a high standard. Above all because we know very well the poor conditions offered by the competition.
