Odium

This German band has been around since 1993, and went the indie route for much of their early recording career, putting out five albums and an EP between 1997 and 2010 before finally getting some label support for their later albums. Their style, as evidenced on 2017's As The World Turns Black, is a workmanlike blend of thrash and Americanized power metal, solid if rarely taking any real chances.
