Odd Logic - Effigy - Full Review -

Postby Man Of Much Metal » Thu Jan 26, 2017 3:57 am

Hello All,

I'm still amazed at how little love this band are getting from the prog community. I have therefore made it my mission to shout about them as much as possible, particularly as they have a brilliant new album available. Trust me, it's good. Check it out here, including a sample track!

All the best,

This will likely finish in my top 10 for the year. All of their albums are great. I really don't get the lack of talk about them.

***I would imagine that the download-only thing probably has something to do with it ........ this is tasty, melodic, traditional prog metal even in download mode .......

It is a travesty that these guys don't seem to be getting the love they should in this board. I've read about bands that in no way are "Progressive" here, than Odd Logic. A true shame... These guys remind me what actually got me into Prog music in the first place. Melodic, intricate music with an excellent vocalist.

The download thing shouldn't matter these days, what matters is the content...

Penny For Your Thoughts was amazing, but this one is more Progressive and Heavier, so that's a plus IMO.

For the non-believers, here's the entire album:

Finally got to check this out today, and yea it's really good. I need some more listens before I try to sort it all out, but there were many wow moments.

I'm pleased that this is finally getting a little love...the band really deserve it. It is the first album under the Odd Logic moniker that's a full band effort, so maybe that's been an issue in the past too.

Thanks for posting. This is my first "Wow" release of the year. I'm sure there are others but I'm still catching up with some goodies from last year. Hopefully this band can attract more attention after this album. I just can't see how a prog fan wouldn't appreciate this one.

This is the first album from them I've enjoyed since that first Legends of Monta album, and I like this one even better.
