Odcult is a Swedish doom rock band and let me tell you they know how to bring it when necessary but also have very catchy choruses. Let’s dive into this beast of a record titled “Into the Earth.” Odcult started roughly back in 2013, they have a sound that mixes doom, stoner rock, and almost arena like rock vocals in the mix.
The fun part of doing an album review on a band that I have no idea about is that I can just listen and do a completely unbiased review. So when I first put on this record, it’s stoner metal but it’s almost like if Black Sabbath was a little faster and a lot more catchy, that’s the best way I could sum up Odcult, and that’s how it is on the whole album. They have very good production on the album, big bassy drums, crunchy guitars and raspy vocals.
Some things I don’t like about the album is that the bass is very high on the mix and it is almost distracting from the rest of the instruments. Also another problem I had with the album and honestly it’s not bad it’s just not my taste, is the vocals, it kinda sounds like he should be singing for a dad rock band on the radio but it works nicely for this band. You can go check out this band on Bandcamp and Spotify and go support this amazing Swedish stoner rock band!
Today I’m giving this album a 6/10 here on Mammoth Tongue Reviews.
