Interview: Matt Brookins of Odin’s Court

Odin's CourtOdin’s Court have been a part of the prog-metal scene since the early 2000’s, however it wasn’t until 2008, when the band signed to ProgRock Records and released Deathanity, that they gained a far wider audience. Since that time the band has remained busy, releasing 4 more albums. The most recent of those releases is Turtles All the Way Down, which features the vocals of Dimetrius LaFavors. The band is currently in the process of two projects: First, given a sonic update to their breakthrough album Deathanity, including the inclusion of Dimetrius, and second, recording their new album, Turtles All the Way Down II.

I had the pleasure of talking with Matt Brookins, the long time leader of the band about the road they’ve traveled so far, and their immediate future and Kickstarter campaign. We also talked a fair bit about the business side of the band and music in general. I hope you enjoy this 26 minute discussion, and check out the band’s crowd funding campaign to help make the new album, and the re-release a reality. The video below does a great job of documenting the improvements being made to Deathanity, and some sneak peaks into the sequel to Turtles All the Way Down.
