Odhinn - _From a Splendorous Battle_
(Napalm Records, 1998)
by: Pedro Azevedo (6 out of 10)
The fact that Odhinn was formed by two former members of In Battle seemed enough to make this MCD potentially interesting. The first two tracks, indeed, can be described as "In Battle meets Deicide". Mostly fast, harsh, aggressive, and, although somewhat far from the level of In Battle, still good stuff -- especially the second track. The other two tracks, however, are very different. Although musically they're not much worse, they suffer from a terrible production: muffled, weak, capable of nearly ruining the music (which isn't bad), at least for me. Plus, it happens that I started listening to In Battle's excellent self-titled debut at the same time, and its superiority really didn't help me to enjoy this MCD. Nevertheless, considering the first two tracks, a properly produced full-length could be interesting.
