Formed in 1994, the Norwegian symphonic black metal act Odium is renowned for their singular album, "The Sad Realm of the Stars" released in 1998 on N.A.P. records.

After a hiatus, Odium made a triumphant return to the live scene in 2018, marking the anniversary of their iconic album at the Inferno Metal Festival. Since then, they have selectively performed at two exclusive shows, showcasing their enduring legacy and unique sound. In 2024, their appearance at the Midgardsblot Festival will be their only performance of the year and a rare opportunity to experience their majestic sound live.
