Odin! Odin! Odin! Odin!
Sure we all remember the movie “Decline of the Western Civilization – The Metal Years” and the scene where Mr. Gazzari was trying to get the crowd to chant “Odin!” The band came off like fluff and stuff in the vid, especially in the hot tub scene…but let me tell you, their debut album rocked.
This was another album that a former friend from high school turned me on to and for it I am eternally grateful. The production wasn’t so great and sounded thumpy on my record player but I loved this record. I still do. When I put it in the CD player, it usually gets 2 or 3 listens in a row.
I’m even more excited now that I found out last night that DC4 is playing here in a few weeks. DC4 features Shawn and Jeff Duncan from Odin. Jeff also plays for Armored Saint now. Apparently Odin just released a best of CD with DTNFAA (pictured) in its entirety and remastered by Roy Z. I highly recommend it. The albums that came after this were a little difficult to listen to. They really fell into the the Motley Crue/GnR styles and it just didn’t work for them IMHO. 12 O’Clock Is a great song though and the studio version is much better than the live version featured in the Metal years movie.
