Posted by Nick Skog on Sunday, February 24, 2013 Under: Album releases

The track 'Suffocation' from Odradek Room's upcoming album 'Bardo. Relative Reality' has now been made available for streaming and free download. This is now the third song to be made available from 'Bardo. Relative Reality' and this one really explores the softer and slower side of Odradek Room's multifaceted sound weaving dreamy melody, soulful vocals, and a melancholic atmosphere. Clean vocals sung in Russian are also clearly heard on this track and this language really works well to create the appropriate sound.

As well as this, the 'Bardo. Relative Reality.' album is now available for pre-order as of today! The album consists of seven songs and an hour playtime, released in a digipack with a 12 page booklet including the full album's lyrics in both Russian and English, since it was very important to the band for the lyrical aspect of this work to be comprehendable in both languages. The album is due for release on March 9, 2013 which is also when the full album will be available online for free streaming and $5 digital downloads. For now, the album can be ordered worldwide by going to the link below and those who pre-order will receive a digital download of the album while they wait for their CD to arrive!
 


Named after one of Franz Kafka's short stories, Odradek Room is an atmospheric and progressive death-doom band with post-rock leanings from Mariupol, Ukraine. Initially formed in 2008 under the name 'Shards of Silence', the past five years has given the band ample time to develop and refine their sound for their debut album 'Bardo. Relative Reality.' Creating dynamic and profound music, rich in tempo and mood variation, Odradek Room has crafted an extremely strong debut which perfectly shows the duality between the aggressive and melancholic sides of death-doom combining slow plodding riffs, soaring emotional melodies, post-rock leanings, and a psychedelic touch to create a rich canvas of sonic majesty. A conceptual album based on the ideas of the Tibetan Book of the Dead and surreal images of the subliminal consciousness, the album consists of seven songs and an hour playtime, released in a digipack with a 12 page booklet including the full album's lyrics in both Russian and English, since it was very important to the band for the lyrical concept of this work to be comprehensible in both languages. Unique, mature, and with a well-defined personality, Bardo. Relative Reality. is a highly recommended debut album from this young Ukrainian band.

 

This April, Odradek Room will share the stage with Mourning Beloveth, Shape of Despair, Kauan, Crypt of Silence, and I Miss my Death at the sixth installment of Ukraine's largest Doom festival, Doom Over Kiev!
