Odium Signs With Year of the Sun Records

Walkerton, Ontario based Odium has signed with Year of the Sun Records for the release of their upcoming debut album “At The Bottom“, which was produced by Greg Dawson (The End, Moneen). Odium’s debut will surface in March 2009. The group has posted a new song online at www.myspace.com/odiummusic

“We’re excited to join the Year of the Sun roster and finally see our debut ‘At The Bottom’ get released. The label has developed a solid reputation for developing bands and we’re excited to be a part of the family,” says Odium bassist Dale Burrows. “We’ve been working the past few years to get to a point where we could share our music on a national scale and now we have the chance. I think our debut offers a little bit of everything that fans of bands like Slipknot or Killswitch Engage could get into just as easily as fans of more atmospheric bands like Tool or Opeth.” 

Odium has been drawing attention from labels with their brand of melodic metal drawing comparisons to In Flames, Killswitch Engage and Soilwork. The band developed a following by playing packed shows throughout Ontario with the likes of Arise and Ruin, Fuck The Fucks and Starring Janet Leigh. The group’s sound of molten metal collides with anthemic choruses to create dark and creepy soundscapes that leaves fans eagerly anticipating the release of the group’s debut “At The Bottom“.
