Birmingham metal / hardcore bruisers Odessa are very excited to announce becoming the latest signing to Ghost Music, the UK's fastest rising independent metal record label.
Having spent two years decimating the European underground metal circuit, playing with the likes of Emmure, While She Sleeps and Heights, and making appearances at Ghostfest and Make a Scene festivals, the five piece are set to take the next step up with their debut full length 'Carry the Weight'.
Vocalist Richard Lardner comments:
"We're excited to be signing with Ghost Music, they're a great team and have worked with them earlier this year at Ghostfest 2012. We can't wait to show our fans the record we've just finished, we had the pleasure of working with the likes of Matthew Bond & Martyn Ford (worked with Trivium, Machine Head etc) on the recording process of drums. We also worked with Seb Barlow for Mastering and recording vocals, Brian Hood for guitar re-amping and Nathan Smith for mixing and guitar tracking. We are confident that the guys at Ghost Music will be invaluable in developing the band on an international level and help us to facilitate as our goals in all aspects of our career"
Artwork duties were taken on by Daniel Goldsworthy (Sylosis, Hell, Accept) which illustrates the theme running through the album lyrically.
"The lyrics focus a lot on negativity, and there is a lot of reference to anxiety throughout the album. However the record is not all darkness and negativity, there are a lot of moments throughout that remind us we are not alone. And that everyone goes through their own battles and don't have to be alone"
