ODIOUS is a Symphonic Oriental Black Death Metal band from Alexandria – Egypt, formed in 1998 with the intention of creating something new and unconventional with their music. In the year 2000,  they recorded an Oriental Doom with Black Metal influences demo that was never released. The 2000 recording experience helped the band in making the decision to adopt the Oriental Black Metal style, and they crowned this decision by self-releasing their first official demo, “Summoned by Night“, in 2003. Due to the huge “Summoned by Night“, the band got signed to the Greek record label Sleaszy Rider Records on June 20, 2005 and released their first full-length album entitled “Mirror of Vibrations” in July 2007.

Hibernating for a couple of years, ODIOUS was built up from the ground up in 2012 by Basem Fakhry covering all Vocals and Orchestration and George Boulos handling the drumming duties. Since then, the band have become one of the most active bands in the scene, releasing their highly acclaimed and successful sophomore album “Skin Age” in November 2015.

Today, the Egyptian Folk/Oriental Death/Black Metal band ODIOUS revealed the full details for their upcoming concert in Alexandria. Odious, who conquered the scene in 2015 with their “Skin Age” album and performed it live for the first time ever last year at Metal Blast Festival, will perform the album again but this time in Alexandria. In support of Egypt’s top Oriental Black Metal Band ODIOUS at “Hot Live Fumes” that will take place at Montreal Club – Mediterranean Azur on February 10 will be:
