Odonis Odonis – Post Plague

Like Year Zero-era Nine Inch Nails and Beyond The Black Rainbow coming together to soundtrack a dystopian near-future action film.

Odonis Odonis mutate into a different band with every outing (they’re on their third), and this is by far their sharpest and most punishing effort. An album full of Daleks yelling “Exterminate!” would have approximately the same cerebral impact.

Aside from a brief respite mid-record when they hit a stride that’s almost Smiths-like, these lads are on a single-minded mission to drill into your psyche and implant the fear of a “pending anthropogenic apocalypse.” They bring up an apt quotation from The Fly in the album’s press notes that we’ll repeat here: “I’m talking about penetration beyond the veil of the flesh! A deep penetrating dive into the plasma pool!”

Take a dive with “That’s How It Goes,” below.
