Song premiere "Mirror Labyrinth" on No Clean Singing:


Odradek Room, a progressive metal band with doom elements returns this autumn with their follow-up to their mature and intelligent debut album “Bardo. Relative Reality.” released in 2013. A four piece located in Mariupol, Ukraine, Odradek Room (named after Franz Kafka's short story The Cares of a Family Man [1919]) uses doom metal as a base, but explores other musical genres to paint a rich palette of texture and atmosphere. Lyrically rooted in spiritual and philosophical themes, this is music that should appeal to introspective souls and deep thinkers.

The "Man of Silt" album explores the nature of personality, and is based on approaches and conceptual understanding of buddhism, but utilizes a system of european symbolism This is a story about an abstract travel of a human from nothingness to nonexistence, during which he tries to see and understand himself. He sees his personality melting and rising, splitting and merging. He sees that his personality is nothing more than a combination of figures like on a chessboard in Herman Hesse's magic theatre. His personality is conditioned as everything else is in the world of forms. The human sinks in his own scaring, sick illusions and consciousness projections, and sees clear light and clear nature of reality. This story has neither a beginning nor an end, everyone who is born, who considers himself an individual, walks through this cycle...but in a new way each time. Everything is constantly changing...But in some way stays the same. Until one realizes this cycle.

“A Man of Silt” will be co-released between Hypnotic Dirge Records and BadMoodMan Music in an edition of 500 copies. A limited edition 6 panel digipack will also be available from each label in a limitation of 100 copies each. The album should appeal to fans of doom metal in general, but also listeners of prog metal bands such as late-Katatonia, mid-Opeth, Ihsahn, and Devin Townsend.


Le groupe Odradek Room est de retour cet automne avec leur metal progressif aux influences doom, pour nous présenter la suite à “Bardo. Relative Reality.”, un album paru en 2013 et qui faisait preuve à la fois de maturité et d'intelligence. Nommé d'après la nouvelle « The Cares of a Family Man » (1919) de Franz Kafka, le quatuor de Mariupol, Ukraine, superpose différentes influences à leur sauce doom afin de construire une palette originale, riche en textures et en ambiances. Avec des paroles aux thèmes empreints de spiritualité et la philosophie, la musique d'Odradek Room a la force de rejoindre les âmes introspectives et les penseurs de fond.

Le nouvel album "Man of Silt" se penche sur la nature de la personnalité et puise ses sources dans les concepts de conscience du Bouddhisme, tout en utilisant un système de symbolisme européen. Il présente le voyage abstrait d'un humain, du néant jusqu'à la non-existence, au cours duquel il cherche à se voir et se comprendre. Il perçoit sa personnalité, qui se fond et prend forme, se séparant et se combinant. Il voit alors que sa personnalité n'est rien de plus que la somme de différentes figures, comme sur un échiquier du théâtre magique de Herman Hesse. Sa personnalité est conditionnée comme tout le reste dans ce monde de formes. L'humain sombre dans des illusions malsaines et des projections de sa propre conscience, et voit pourtant clair dans la nature de la réalité. Cette histoire n'a ni début ni fin, puisque tous ceux qui naissent et se définissent comme individus traversent ce cycle… mais d'une manière différente à chaque fois. Tout est en constant changement, mais demeure pourtant le même—jusqu'à ce que l'individu prenne conscience de ce cycle.

"A Man of Silt" sortira conjointement chez Hypnotic Dirge Records et BadMoodMan Music dans un format CD limité à 500 copies. Un digipack édition limitée de 6 panneaux sera également disponible en 100 exemplaires chez chacun des deux labels. L'album devrait intéresser les fans de doom metal en général, ainsi que les amateurs de groupes prog metal tel que Katatonia (tardif), Opeth (mi-carrière), Ihsahn, et Devin Townsend.

Sortie prévue le 12 octobre 2017.
