Published Apr 18, 2012Hanover, ON metal quintet Odium are gearing up for the April 24 release of their sophomore set Burning the Bridges to Nowhere, but if you were hoping for a sneak peek to start a push pit at home to, Exclaim! is bringing you a stream of the album just a little early.
Down below you can listen to the whole album, which arrives via Year of the Sun Records. Standouts like the album's opening title track pit detuned, jud-judding six-strings and double-kick drum rhythms with singer Thomas Emmans's varied vocal styles, which run from Maynard James Keenan-styled creep-crooning to esophagus-annihilating screams.
While the band specialize in modern metal poundings, "Within the Distraction" runs through an Iron Maiden-styled twin guitar intro, while closing rock ballad "The Descent" softens things just slightly with a weepy string section and ethereal guitar treatments.
