“Payload's newest release Odyssey Dawn caught my interest more or less straight off the bat due to a rarely-seen label: 'Parental Advisory: Explicit Content'. Sure, a lot of records still have lyrics and artwork far more gruesome than this release. Nevertheless, I have not seen it on a Heavy Metal album in quite a while. Musically, Payload strives for a simple, yet catchy sound with gruff vocals spouting promises of doom and destruction. And boy, do I love it! Granted, it is not as eighties-y as most releases I give a high rating but the sheer simplicity and expertise with which Odyssey Dawn was created greatly impressed me. Sure, you can argue that there is nothing new about the album (I would agree) and that it is not as 'heavy' as it potentially could be (if anything, it incorporates several Hard Rock elements, such as the simplicity of the riffs), yet those facts do nothing to diminish just how impressively talented Payload is as a band.”
