Odin's Court Signs With ProgRock Records

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).

Commented ODIN'S COURT guitarist/vocalist Matt Brookins: "ODIN'S COURT has a rich history. We've done a lot of great shows, put out some CDs, put out a DVD, and had many exciting opportunities along the way. However, we've always had an important element that was missing, and that was the ability for distribution, marketing, and networking on a larger, global scale. Our latest album 'Deathanity' is leaps and bounds above our previous work in terms of maturity, so the time was right to make that next jump, and we're very happy and pleased to be joining the ProgRock Records family. President Shawn Gordon is simply put, one of the most down to earth and humble people I've met in the industry. But don't let that fool you — he has business savvy to match, and I think we're all excited for ODIN'S COURT to be unveiled upon the world!"

Commented Shawn Gordon, President of ProgRock Records: "I'd seen the name ODIN'S COURT floating around for a few years but didn't have a chance to hear their material, but they sure seemed to be getting some big gigs, so it was a pleasant surprise when Matt contacted me and was interested in working with us. Matt's a very talented and determined guy and exceptionally easy to work with, which is becoming a lot more important to me now than it use to, we're really glad to have him and the boys on board."
