The Old Bridge Metal Militia were/are some of the most extreme metal heads hailing from Old Bridge, NJ.
Over 30 years ago a group of friends opened their doors to upcoming bands like Metallica, Slayer, and Raven. The original Old Bridge Metal Militia would get these up and coming bands to play at parties in basements and the backs of stores. They were immortalized in the song “One Night in Old Bridge” on the Megaforce compilation “Born to Metalize” as well as Blessed Death’s song “Knights of Old Bridge”. The OBMM has also been mentioned in Rat Skates DVD “Get Thrashed” and Born in the Basement”.
In early 2011 Chris and Pattie Homeny decided it was time to put Old Bridge back on the metal map, and resurrected the Old Bridge Metal Militia creating the OBMM clothing line.
Originally started as a FaceBook fan page to pay homage to what was 30 years ago, Chris and Pattie found that the music scene and bands welcomed their support and loyalty. Joining forces with metalheads like themselves, collectively they have been able to give the local scene a booster shot of support. The resurrected Old Bridge Metal Militia is about the brotherhood and camaraderie that is shared among all loyal music fans. The Militia is still alive and well with members and fans around the world and keeping to its roots you will see people wearing OBMM shirts at many shows supporting local metal scene.
