ODD DIMENSION To Release ‘Symmetrical’
“The human and musical path which drove us to the realization of this album is fully reflected in the sound mix which characterizes our songs”, says Odd Dimension about ‘Symmetrical’, their forthcoming debut album.
The album is made up of seven tracks that represent, even on a textual level, a sound path which originates from very intense atmospheres and flows that then follow into a milder end: a journey amid lights and shadows, good and evil, past and present all transfigured within a relationship of a father and his son, lead by a narrator into the interior journey within themselves.
The journey of these six exceptional musicians started in 2001 with their introduction in the metal scene, which they’ve explored in its entirety, from classical death metal to the progressive genre and everything in between.
“Mixing all those musical influences wasn’t easy in the beginning”, states Gigi Andreone, bass player, referring to his first sessions with Federico Pennazzato (drums), Gianmaria Saddi (guitars) and Antonio Agate (keyboards), “but with the Arrival of Manuel Candiotto (vocals) everything really started to fall into place”.
The band’s first EP, ‘A New Dimension, came out in 2005 and it was very well received by critics.
The EP was followed by an exciting and intense period of touring. Soon after Odd Dimension were joined by keyboardist Gabriele Ciaccia and together they began working on their first full length album.
Recorded and produced by Gianmaria and Gigi in the band’s own studio, ‘Symmetrical’ was mixed at Thin Ice Studios – Surrey, UK by Threshold’s guitarist Karl Groom (renowned for his work with bands like Yes and Dragonforce) and mastered in Milan, Italy by Alberto Cutolo at Massive Art Studios. Artwork was done by Brazilian artist Gustavo Sazes at Abstrata Studios (Manowar, Kamelot, Angra, Lauren Harris, Arch Enemy).
In November 2010 the band signed a record deal with Scarlet Records for a March 22, 2011 release of ‘Symmetrical’ worldwide.
