Cellar Darling - The Spell

It's odd that Anna Murphy's druidic side should emerge more fully post-Eluveitie. Cellar Darling's debut pulled from the occultic weirdness that she had explored more with Lethe, Nucleus Torn, and other projects, lashing these macabre tendencies to a deceptively heavy rock skeleton. The Spell sounds tighter and more confident in exactly the way a sophomore album should.

Fallujah - Undying Light

There's something really satisfying about discovering a promising band early on in their career, and then seeing them develop and mature into something special. The flip side to that is the disappointment that comes when said band ruins all that hard work and releases a complete let-down, which is sadly the case here.

Our Survival Depends On Us

There are tons of bands on this globe that are easier to describe than OUR SURVIVAL DEPENDS ON US. Intense Spiritual Music is the label that was chosen by OSDOU themselves. The band breaks out of musically pigeonholing and instead combines the best aspects of the single genres to create an own sound: Mantra- and tribal-like drumming lays the foundation for hypnotically soundscapes created by two 7-strings, accentuated with pitched-black sound samples from the keys and finally hammered through the auditory canals by the pulsating bass. The conjuring and mourning vocals of three singers guides you through the darkest abysses, the world of OSDOU. A seamless change between acoustic lightness and mighty slow motioned guitar walls evokes emotions of rage, sadness, bitterness, affiliation, love and more.
