Our Survival Depends on Us
Since 1999 combines the unique quintet from Austria elements of classic Metal genres with shoreless influences words can barely describe.
There are tons of bands on this globe that are easier to describe than OUR SURVIVAL DEPENDS ON US. Intense Spiritual Music is the label thatwas chosen by OSDOU themselves. The band breaks out of musically pigeonholing and instead combines the best aspects of the single genresto create an own sound: Mantra- and tribal-like drumming lays the foundation for hypnotically soundscapes created by two 7-strings,ccentuated with pitched-black sound samples from the keys and finally hammered through the auditory canals by the pulsating bass. Theconjuring and mourning vocals of three singers guides you through the darkest abysses, the world of OSDOU. A seamless change between acoustic lightness and mighty slow motioned guitar walls evokes emotions of rage, sadness, bitterness, affiliation, love and more.
Viewing the creative process as much more than simple songwriting the band gathered together artists, photographers, musicians and othercreators to unite. Our Survival Depends On Us roped in a number of guest musicians including Alan Averil (Primordial), Matt McNerneyt (Grave Pleasures, Hexvessel), Hellmuth (Belphegor), V. Santura (Triptykon) and Steindór Andersen (Rímur chants and best known for the collaboration with Sigur Rós) and many more.
