Remember the cult classic movie, The Decline Of Western Civilization Pt.2 – The Metal Years? There was a Sunset Strip band featured that has gotten more recognition for the movie, and their antics n the hot tub, than their music…..Odin.

I’m not going to dwell on the movie because Odin is back and this E.P. is just a taste of what the band has in store for 2008. There are only three songs on the CD but each one features a tight musical machine and one hell of a voice in Randy ‘O’. The music reminds me of old school, early ’80s, Metal…..maybe a touch of Armored Saint (Jeff Duncan) mixed with Judas Priest and ’80s L.A. Hard Rock. It’s full on Heavy Metal, the band is going straight for it with a huge guitar sound and big-time wails from Randy’O’. I admit to being surprised at Randy’s voice, it sounds bigger and stronger now than it did before.

Bottom Line:
Forget the movie and take a listen to this E.P., each song is strong and power packed. Odin looks to come back in a big way in 2008. Check out the Odin MySpace page (link above) to hear these songs and place an order.
