Odium's existence began in the year of 1994 with only three members; Demariel, Charon Martyras and Secthdamon. Drummer Anders Eek joined the band in 1995. After some months of rehearsals, Odium entered a studio to record a six-track promo tape. The band got offers from several minor labels and ended up signing with French Velvet Music. Later in 1995 the band hooked up with keyboardist Bastadon, and the line-up was complete. In December 1996 Odium entered studio Stovner to record their debut "The Sad Realm of the Stars". Due to serious delays in the studio, the recording wasn't actually finished before springtime 1998. Nocturnal Art Productions later bought the rights for the album and Odium was released for their contract with French Velvet Music. If the album actually had been put out in 1996 when it was first recorded, Odium probably would have made a stronger impact in the scene. Odium has been very much in the shadows, much due to not having a fully dedicated line-up. Though, the band has never given up. Today, the line-up is seriously reduced, only Demariel and Secthdamon is remaining. They made a recording in 2001 of one new track, which shows a more aggressive approach of the band which you can listen to only here at Myspace at the moment.. The members of Odium are also playing in other bands too these days. Secthdamon plays in Zyklon and Myrkskog and have now also become session bassist for the Emperor reunion. Demariel has converted his name to Gortheon and are also to be seen in in Myrkskog. Anders Eek is playing with his doom acts Funeral and Fallen.
