Below is our complete Odin's Court news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Odin's Court has issued the following statement about recording two albums:
"Hey, everybody! I've been in hiding. Some updates for you...
"My new D2C Studios has been busy. As such, I haven't had as much time to work on Odin's Court material as I'd like, since I've been recording other people. However, we have been working on the new material, and things are going well (though slow).
"We have 2 albums worth of material: The first CD will be 13 songs. They are electric with the full band and 100% brand new material. The average song length is about 4:20, and the tunes are more catchy and focused than Deathanity's pieces. The exception is the main track, which is about 19 minutes. This album is the priority, and we're hoping to get all the recording and mixing done in 2009.
"The second CD will be 100% organic: acoustic guitar, drums, banjo, harmonica, mandolin, piano, double bass, and vocals. It will be 8 (or so) songs, including various alternate takes from the 13 above, as well as 2 completely new arrangements of songs from Deathanity (you won't recognize them) and 2 new arrangements of songs from Driven by Fate. We also hope to finish recording in 2009, though the mixing will probably be done after the electric album is released. More...

Lexington Park, Maryland-based progressive rock/metal band ODIN'S COURT has inked a deal with ProgRock Records. The group's new CD, entitled "Deathanity", is available for immediate order and will ship in mid-May 2008 and be available at your favorite brick and mortar retailer on July 15, 2008. Pre-sales are discounted $2 on the ProgRock Records site until the album starts shipping.
"Deathanity" displays why ODIN'S COURT is difficult to fit into a genre; ambience, dynamics, and soul are combined with complexity, groove, and energy in a song oriented structure, to create a unique, surreal landscape. Including a configuration similar to that of the classic PINK FLOYD album "Dark Side of the Moon", "Deathanity" utilizes saxophone and backing female vocalists, and includes a palate scattered with spoken vocal clips and vast ranging sound effects. Special guest vocalists include Tom Englund (EVERGREY) and Tony Kakko (SONATA ARCTICA). More...
Another new song from the Lexington Park, Maryland-based progressive rock/metal band ODIN'S COURT, entitled "Obesite", has been posted on the MySpace page of ODIN'S COURT guitarist/vocalist Matt Brookins' studio D2C Studios.
"Obesite" comes off ODIN'S COURT's forthcoming album,"Deathanity", which is tentatively due in early 2008. The CD features a guest appearance by SONATA ARCTICA's Tony Kakko on the song "Crownet".
Commented Matt Brookins: "The first time I heard SONATA ARCTICA, I fell in love. Tony has such lush, unique vocals, and he has an instantly recognizable voice. And the band exhibits characteristics that make them stand out in their genre — infectious melodies, technical musicianship, and diversity. 'Ecliptica' and 'Silence' are two of my favorite metal albums, so to hear that voice on an ODIN'S COURT song is quite cool for me. With all the growth and success SONATA ARCTICA has seen in the past couple of years, I was honestly shocked and excited when Tony agreed to sing a song on our new CD! Such a nice human being with such a talent is rare. I can't wait for folks to hear what he brought to the table!"
ODIN'S COURT is currently an independant band in search of a label for its new CD, "Deathanity", a concept album about the direction in which the human race is taking the planet.
