metalhedjuggalo666 After all the years since their first Demo release back in 2001 with "Germansk" they still to this day keep to their roots of the black metal style they started out with, and I feel like this album is proof of that. Favorite track: steter Wiederkehr.

H.L. This is elite undergound black metal from Germany - proud and full of dignity. ODAL manage to mix raw aggressiveness and wild melodies in a perfect manner. As the songs are catchy and complex at the same time, they stay interesting for quite a while. Everybody who loves ageless true black metal, far beyond all modern trends, should check this one out! Favorite track: Erblicke das Chaos.

Odal, one of those truly classy black metal acts of the German underground, returns with force and fire to deliver their 4th album in the course of autumn 2016.

Originally founded as a side project in 1999 by main man Taaken, over the course of 17 years, 4 full lenghts, splits, EPs and numerous line up changes, Odal managed to defy trends and build their own status as an unrelenting and uncompromising force in underground music.

With a long 8 year wait after their last and esteemed full length, and in the wake of their recent EP "Der Dunkelheit Reiter", this Thuringian trio made sure to feature tracks of epic proportions that will fit with their impressive back catalogue they highlighted with "Wilde Kraft" (2005) and "Zornes Heimat" (2008).

Picking up where they left off, Odal offers a dense six-track ride into grim, emotive black majesty, bound and influenced by raw northern blooded black metal and pagan roots. Refined, yet pure to their core, it comprises some of the most mature material written in the bands existence. Yet again, every step of the way, they musically hover in the same direction as the previous albums. "Geistes Unruh" (spirit's unrest) remains more clear & focused, provided with strong melodies, striking drumming, and an unfaltering voice.
