In a year with many strong prog releases, one of the outsiders is Oddland's Origin. A tinge of Pain Of Salvation's Daniel Gildenlöw on the vocals can only be a good thing, and the technical prowess adds to the melodic nuances of the music. Edgy, powerful and masterfully heavy, the Finns carve their own path with this new album. Seemingly accessible, Origin reveals exceptional layers throughout.

Full album on Bandcamp.

Very original sound. I loved it. Not perfect, but very good.

Really impressed by this album. The band is underrated but this album deserves praise. One of the most interesting prog releases I've heard so far this year.

I liked their debut very much. This new one does not sound interesting at all. No song stands out.
Savor what you feel and what you see
