    Turtles All the Way Down is the new album from ODIN’S COURT, a USA based progressive rock and metal band. After releasing four albums on ProgRock Records internationally, Odin’s Court has partnered with ProgRock Records to release their latest album independently through their own label D2C Studios.

    Band leader Matt Brookins commented on the latest album: “On Turtles All the Way Down, our sound is refined with a balance of modern and classic vibes, while still retaining the signature ‘Odin’s Court’ sound. We also have the ‘missing piece’ that completes us – a new vocalist that can bring the emotion and technicality to the music that it deserves. Dimetrius LaFavors’ vocals, combined with the more mature song writing and production, have taken us to the next level.”

    As with all of the ODIN’S COURT full length releases, the newest is a concept album. This album deals with ideas and questions relating to the entire universe – how did it start, where is it going, what makes it tick, what is its purpose, etc. – from the point of view of the individual’s mind. It deals with mankind’s quest for knowledge, and how that knowledge changes. New discoveries often change humanity’s understanding or turn perceptions upside down, sometimes making long held beliefs immaterial. The title refers to the idiom that references “infinite recursion” or in layman’s terms, “what came first: the chicken or the egg?”

    Brookins commented on the concept: “While the songs are much more accessible, the music still has serious intricacies for the technical music lover. The melodies and harmonies with the vocals are catchier than our past work, but thematically this album deals with pretty heavy subject matter. For the prog lover, the concept and lyrics are definitely an order of magnitude above ‘Nerd Rock’ since it is largely inspired by physics. Of course, the other important inspiration is human emotion, as no matter what science may observe, individuals’ experiences always have a nontangible factor to them that cannot be truly expressed or understood in textbook terms – they have to be learned through life.”

    On Turtles All the Way Down, ODIN’S COURT drew from various inspirations such as Pink Floyd, Dream Theater, Devin Townsend, Porcupine Tree, HIM, Iron Maiden, and Queen.
