Lexington Park, Maryland-based progressive rock/metal band ODIN'S COURT has been rejoined by guitarist Rick Pierpont.
Commented ODIN'S COURT guitarist/vocalist Matt Brookins: "When Rick left us, things felt incomplete. ODIN'S COURT is a band that promotes friendship, and over the years we've grown to be a close family. Although we had some strong candidates who were both musically gifted and great people, when Rick approached us about returning, we discussed it and could not say 'no.' ODIN'S COURT is complete once again."
Rick had this to say about rejoining ODIN'S COURT: "I always knew we had a special camaraderie, but after a couple of months away from them, I realized how much I missed them. Then when I heard the mostly final mix of the 'Deathanity', I was BLOWN AWAY at the music we had created together! Between Matt's unique but SOLID vocal delivery, the two songs with guest vocals, the many layers of vocals, the solid playing, the overall mix, the details in the production, the concept, the artwork, etc... I just knew I couldn't turn my back on such an amazing piece of work or my friends any longer. I knew I had to go back to my ODIN'S COURT family."
ODIN'S COURT recently finished "Deathanity", a concept album about the direction the human race is taking the planet. Tony Kakko (best known for his work with SONATA ARCTICA) was announced as a guest vocalist on the song "Crownet". Another guest vocalist will be announced this month.
ODIN'S COURT is currently shopping the new album to labels.
