Odradek Room is currently preparing for their performance at Doom Over Kiev on Sunday October 15, which will serve as their album release show at the monumental ten year anniversary of this great Doom Festival.



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. 

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 -Official-, and Devin Townsend

October 10, 2017
Deep, cold, and far away: Norilsk – the northernmost city, located in Siberia far above the arctic circle, evokes ideas of hardship, darkness, and doom. Despite its isolation, the name also brings images of nordic beauty, mystery, and a majestic reverence.




Capturing these contrasting notions into music, French-Canadian band Norilsk is back with a captivating new album, as thick and heavy as permafrost. Le passage des glaciers (The Passage of Glaciers) follows in the footsteps of 2015's album...

"The song we’re bringing you today is as mysterious and haunting as the Kafka story that provided the inspiration for the band’s name. Its intensity ebbs and flows. Slow and somber at first, with a spectral guitar melody as the centerpiece of the intro, it becomes more urgent, in pa...
