This is the first time I hear about Od'Sahe, and I have very little information about this act. Philosophy ov Self-Destruction is labeled as Black/Death Metal. It is also said to be experimental Death/Black Metal chaos. Well, all of this seems to be accurate as far as I'm concerned.

This 31 minute long album is full of technical stunts, which proves beyond any doubts the high skills and talent of those musicians. Very often, when music becomes over-the-top technical, it loses its melodic touch, something intimately related to music, and I do believe it is a very big loss. Then again, maybe you happen to be a tech maniac, in which case this album would be a definite must in your CD collection. On this disc the guitar work is top notch, with its massive riffs, tremolo picking and lead playing. The machine gun drumming is as tight and punchy as one would expect. The vocals are of the raspy/growls type, suiting the musical direction perfectly well. On two of the tracks, my overall favorite by the way, clean arpeggios and leads add a well appreciated touch of harmony, compensating a bit for the weakness in the melodic department. They are: "Dream ov the Dragon-Kha Bog Morok" and the excellent instrumental on spot #6, "Cosmic Forever-Palace ov the Thousand Names". Another side of this album worth mentioning is the complex time signatures often present, giving Od'Sahe a certain progressive edge. This is actually a plus in the band's sound.

  1. The One Who Sealed By Vermin
  2. An Astral Suicide-The Wonderpath ov Curse, Plague n’ Leprosy
  3. Dream ov the Dragon-Kha Bog Morok
