Finnish progressive metal alumni ODDLAND return with a second digital single and video from their upcoming studio album “Vermilion”. Just like their previous released track from the same record, “Unity” shows a tight and intense-sounding approach, rhythmically complex and rich in melodies and emotions. Another strike before the full-out progressive attack that will be the Finnish band’s full-length album in March 2022.
ODDLAND have spent the Corona-lockdown, writing their first album in 5 years, excelling in a deeper and deeper internal insight about how to expand their impressively unique sound. A hybrid between bands like Tool, Leprous, Pain Of Salvation and Soen, but with their own trademark-sound that makes ODDLAND stand out.
The album, with the title “Vermilion” is set for release through new German label Uprising Records, who spotted the band’s talent and immediately signed them, upon hearing the new album. “Vermilion” is set for release in March 2022. Uprising Records is a sub-division of the Danish label Target, which also houses sub-labels, such as Emanzipation, From The Vaults and Mighty Music. ODDLAND toured Europe alongside Persefone in 2018, and plans are in the making, of having the band, once again, hitting the European roads as soon as Corona allows for it to happen. ODDLAND has previously released two critically acclaimed albums, “The Treachery Of Senses” from 2012, released on Century Media records and “Origin”, released in 2016 through Sensory Records.
