I love the band, and every release gets even better. It is refreshing how The Odious is never afraid to venture into experimental territory or cross genres without sacrificing any of their heaviness or badassery. Musical skill all around, great live shows, this band is going places.
Absolutely soul-crushing, conveys emptiness and conflict in a truly beautiful way. The contrast between the slower, lower parts and the high, screaming guitars wrenches you out of your skin. This is a sincere album that connected with me after a single listen.
I had the pleasure of meeting these lovely musicians at the Batuta club in Santiago. Kind people, and damn is their music good. Great contrast, but at the same time it all comes together. Listening to this album always lifts me up and makes me feel good.
This has got to be one of the most under-rated prog metal bands. At the Hands of Loss is a masterpiece, telling a story all the way through, and doing so with absolute musical brilliance. Expressive, coherent, and well-performed.
