Sakari Ojanen (vocals/guitars) comments:
“For us, playing live is the consummation of making new music and releasing an album, so we are thrilled to announce our return to the stages of Europe. We are excited to show how the band and the songs have grown and matured. Also thrilled to be doing it in the great company of Manticora and Oversense.”

ODDLAND have spent the Corona-lockdown, writing their first album in 5 years, excelling in a deeper and deeper internal insight about how to expand their impressively unique sound. A hybrid between bands like Tool, Leprous, Pain Of Salvation and Soen, but with their own trademark-sound that makes ODDLAND stand out.

ODDLAND have previously released two critically acclaimed albums, “The Treachery Of Senses” from 2012, released on Century Media records and “Origin“, released in 2016 through Sensory Records.

Oddland Line-up:
Sakari Ojanen – vocals & guitars
Jussi Poikonen – guitars
Joni Palmroth – bass
Ville Viitanen – drums
