ORISSA / Press

“The focus here is not at all on virtuosity but on intensity and atmosphere which I honestly think is much harder to do well. The album Omens is filled with powerful chords, sophisticated rhythms, tons of heavy angularity, ambient electronics and is anchored by Dodini’s plaintive (and distinctly non-metal) vocals and interesting, somewhat cynical lyrical themes. Metal is not a style here at all, but is rather a sound base around which Dodini can affect the listener deeply and emotionally. Orissa’s music manages to be both powerful and contemplative without resorting to any musical clichés.”

“Progression, Brilliance and Passion are the key elements in Orissa's music. It made me appreciate what well written music sounds like. It's more than metal. I hope the world is ready for this!”
