Portland, Oregon-based progressive death metal/progressive rock faction The Odious recently officially announced the upcoming release of their second full-length album, ‘Vesica Piscis’. It is the highly anticipated follow up to their 2012 debut album, ‘Joint Ventures’, a release that is revered in progressive metal circles even now. Prior to the release of Joint Ventures, the band captured the attention of the progressive metal world with their 2011 EP, ‘That Night a Forest Grew’.
As a band with an unconventional sound and a cutting-edge approach to their craft, it’s not all that unusual that The Odious took a number of years between releases when carefully crafting ‘Vesica Piscis’. The results speak for themselves, as few bands contain the rare mix of top-notch talent, wide-ranging musical focus, and advanced song writing abilities that The Odious has in spades on ‘Vesica Piscis’.
The album’s second single (Mono No Aware) can be watched on the link above, and the album is anticipated to drop on 21st June. It will reviewed here on Planet Mosh one week prior to release!!
