O.D.D. – The Disorder EP
O.D.D.’s “The Disorder EP” dives headfirst into a primordial energy with fantastic results. Deserving to be blasted as loud as possible, the songs have a physicality to them. The tribal-like rhythms work wonders in embodying a communal presence. Vocals swim above the din embodying the wild chaotic spirit imbued in every piece. Guitars riff and solo with abandon, delving into near chaos. Rhythms have a force of nature style to them, as they burst forth with intense energy. Lyrics have a poetry to them while they conjure up impressive, imaginative imagery with great gusto.
Grabbing the listener “Executive Order” barrels through starting things on a high note. By far the highlight of the collection the way the piece churns forth has a majesty to it, one that refuses to let up. Incredible drumming defines the passionate performance of “Label Killer” where guitars nearly dissolve into the abyss. Tempos burn with “Loud Fighter” as the track at times draws a wide degree of stylistic influences, ranging from hard rock to even little elements of shoegaze into the mix. Choosing a neat balance between bombast and beauty, the song evolves into an unruly beast towards its final stretch. Perfectly ending the collection “The View” chooses a ceremonial style while everything it brought to the breaking point. Heavy on a righteous fury nothing slows down as the piece burns through its duration.
“The Disorder EP” offers up a gorgeous tour-de-force, one that shows off the undeniable chops of O.D.D.
