Genre-collapsing noiseniks, OvO, are pleased to announce the release of their new album, Abisso, on November 4th via the vessel of all things Italian and loud, Supernatual Cat.

The duo, made up of Bruno Dorella on a stripped back drum kit and Stefania Pedretti handling vocals and guitars, are entering their thirteenth year together, and are showing no signs of relenting in their sonic exploration.

OvO’s live repertoire has seen them play everywhere; from Europe to Mexico to Israel and everywhere in between, alongside a host of sound-benders including Nadja, KK Null, Thurston Moore, Jim O’Rourke, Rollerball, Thrones, SubArachnoidSpace, Zenigeva, Lightning Bolt, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Estradasphere, Steve Mc Kay, Trencher, Ludicra, Bill Horist, USA Is a Monster, White Mice, Bastard Noise, Zu, Larsen, Jarboe, and A Hawk and a Hacksaw. Having truly mastered the art of crafting sharp and incredibly loud dynamic noise, OvO’s sound veers from bellyache sludge to simmering and shimmering compositions that ooze rock ‘n’ roll from punk-stained pores.

Stay tuned for further OvO details in the coming weeks.

DRUNK DAD “Morbid Reality” – Noise/Experimental Release Is Turn-Key Brain Consumption

DRUNK DAD – Okay all of you Noise and Experimental Metal loyalists; there’s a new band for y’all to add to your extended list of must buys for 2013: DRUNK DADs 4 song EP release titled: Morbid Reality. Avant garde Metalheads and those that follow the Melvins will surely get their brains gleefully sculpted with the Noise party that DRUNK DAD plays so freaking well.

With the absolute heavy album opener Guts, the musical melee has begun. Guts is nearly 8 minutes of maddening vocals and mind assaulting beats and guitar parts that make more sense than our current climate change controversy. In other words, you must go with the eclectic flow with this band’s representation of extreme and join the party; otherwise you’ll be a wallflower waiting for the next easy listening bus to arrive.

With songs Seizure, Ritual and Scum Fee rounding out this EP, DRUNK DAD has no problem exploring the atmospherics of sound, providing both calm and violent intervals that weave themselves together in an unexpected package of fascinating ear candy. This is Noise you want to shake loose to while running aimlessly with a cold beer in each hand; while not giving a shit about anything that could possibly spoil your day. Metal be thy name.

Eolian Empire released the four-song Morbid Reality via 12” vinyl and digital download on June 11th, 2013. Click RIGHT HERE to purchase the digital download!

Metal Odyssey Spotlight On: Marc Broude – Psychological Warfare – 2 Songs of Industrial Metal and Noise!

MARC BROUDE – My never ending Metal quest to find Metal talent that is unsigned, DIY and real has crossed paths with an Industrial Metal and Noise musician known as: Marc Broude. The Metal Odyssey Spotlight is on Marc Broude and his 2 song EP: Psychological Warfare. Marc is the vocalist and plays all instruments on his music.

I liken the sound of Marc Broude’s music to that of Industrial Metal, where Marc is very down with that tag, he also considers his music to be representative of the Noise genre. Marc is from Chicago, Illinois and had started recording while living in a squatter artist collective back in 2005. During 2005, Marc started out in the Chicago based Noise outfit called: Panicsville. A cross-genre composer, Marc has played in various bands which represented genres of: Black Metal, Grindcore, Punk and Noise. If diversity is the key to Metal success, then Marc has associated with some hefty Metal diversity in the course of seven years.

I really appreciate the overwhelming heaviness, experimentalism and mixture of distortion that Marc has implemented into his music’s sound. Marc’s vocals seem to arise from the dark depths of the damned, while his guitar riffs and drumming create a wall of sound that engulfs my surroundings with a nightmarish, bazaar of the living dead mood and atmosphere. Perfect.

I can see a promising Metal future for Marc, his DIY work ethic, multi-tasking, multi-instrument competency and musical inventiveness should eventually draw some credible attention. Marc feels getting his music heard is more important than making money from it… that’s the characteristic of a real musician and an artist who believes in what he’s created.

You can listen to both Psychological Warfare and God Smacker by clicking on the music bar play buttons below. Warning – to all closed minded, uptight and constipated Pop mainstream music dum dums: Your freely invited to listen as well, only don’t send your laundry bill to Metal Odyssey if you crap your pants.

Listen to GOD SMACKER by clicking on the play button below:

Originally released in 2006 as a 50 piece limited edition 7″ which became out of print, Psychological Warfare was digitally remixed for re-release. Distribution is through IODA and Psychological Warfare will be available at all digital music stores, with the CD being available on Amazon and Tower in about a month from now.

* In 2009, Marc released a 72 minute, Dark Ambient dirge titled: Rites of Zen and Medicine. This release displayed a drastic change in Marc’s sound, with a fusion of free improvisation and Avant-Garde Jazz.
