ODESSA s/t tape (SS003)
the third official release from SISSTER SSOUND sees the first physical release from texas based instrumental black metalers ODESSA. forming in 2009 as a two piece and performing several live shows with a drum machine, they later added a live drummer to fill out the sound and round out the group. these are the first recordings as a three piece with the live drum line up. creating a sound that could fit easily alongside other ambient USBM bands, ODESSA cut their own path and remain sonically driving, speeding forward and coating their audience in a wave of darkness. guitars, bass, and drums. no keys, no synth, no bullshit.
the self titled cassette carries 5 songs in roughly 23 minutes and comes housed with a black on black cover, color insert card, and wrapped in a printed translucent vellum band (with all design, logoing and assembly by GIVE UP). limited first pressing of only 75, available HERE now.
