The Odious is a band from Portland, Oregon in the united states... they are fucking unreal. Read about them on Metal sucks a whiles back and have been hooked. Their shit is free and some mind bending stuff.
Add in the consideration that their first ep, available @ theodious.com is free, and that it was produced (pretty flawlessly I must say) when they were 17.
They are coming out with a full length this year and it might crack my top ten list. Here is a studio update
Sound? Imagine if BTBAM had more replay value, then had butt babies with Gorod, The Faceless, Daath, and had Layne Stanley of Alice in Chains doing cleans... then gave that baby a lot of LSD.
What sets these guys apart is: pure song writing skill, production for an unsigned band, and their ability to take influences of bands and genres which are completely unrelated and make riffs, songs and styling incorporating them.
Most bands will be like "Hey I am Prog-Tech Death" these guys are like "hey, we are stoner prog -tech-death with aspects of djent, jazz, flamenco, etc."
Since I found these guys, I have only met one person to dislike them... so give them a try guys! If you are interested in seeing their new album they have a facebook page
