Post Plague with Odonis Odonis - An Interview

Se existe insanidade e inteligência na música atual, e existe muita por sinal, um desses grandes exemplos, sem dúvida é, o agora, trio canadense Odonis Odonis.

Os caras podem ir desde o noisesurfgazepsych de "Hollandaze" o debute deles de 2011 até o industrial post gaze de seu mais recente álbum "Post Plague" lançado este ano. Tudo isso sem perder o poderio enérgico e o barulho gratuito que os caras perpetuam sem jamais, veja bem, jamais perder o fio condutor de explorar por todos os meios sonoros suas perturbações sônicas.

Sem se ater a rótulos, limites ou modismos, o Odonis Odonis segue adiante sua caminhada ao inferno, violentos e agora mais sintéticos do que outrora.
