From FB:

 

Finnish band called OD was founded based on drummer Ossi "OD" Sivula's longtime dream of creating a record full of melodic rock, in 2012.

First demos were put together working with several musicians and next few years flew by creating big melodies and searching for the soul and inspiration of the band.
In 2014 the core group was joined by bassist Kim Tee, with whom Ossi has been working as a technician for the finnish rock group Brother Firetribe, and Juice Wahlsten, a long time friend and guitarist from another finnish rock band Ancara.

The big voice was the last missing piece to create the big bang and Brazilian "Zorro", Dan Vasc was found late fall in 2014.

Ossi was amazed after watching a video in youtube where Dan showed off his deep voice and high range vocals and after only 3 hours the first demo song was done! After working through internet for a few months Dan's first ever flight tickets were booked to finish the record in Finland and to finally bring the band infront of the live audiences.

Stay tuned to hear more of what's coming!

Musically very promising. The production/mix on Here to Stay is muddy as heck though.

They've been signed to Frontiers Records:

 

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of another hot new young band from the Melodic Rock underground: OD!

OD hails from Finland and will be releasing their debut album via Frontiers in 2016.

The band was originally put together by drummer Ossi "OD" Sivula in 2012 based on his longtime dream of creating a record full of melodic rock ass kickers. The first demos were put together with several musicians and the next few years flew by as time was spent creating big melodies and searching for members that would round out the soul and inspiration of the band.

In 2014, the band was joined by guitarist Juice Wahlsten, and later – in 2015 – by bassist Ilari Hämäläinen. A big voice was the last missing piece to create the big bang they were looking for and a Brazilian guy, "Zorro" Dan Vasc was found in the latter half of 2014. Ossi was amazed after watching a video where Dan showed off his deep voice and high range vocals and knew he was the singer they were looking for! After working on music long distance via the internet for a few months, Dan's flight tickets were booked so he could come in to finish the band’s recordings in Finland and to finally take the band out in front of live audiences.

“We couldn’t have hoped for a better company than Frontiers to work with as they have a strong and stable reputation with classic rock acts that has been a huge impact for OD’s music as well,” tells the band. “As we are finishing the debut album, we are eagerly looking for the future and getting front of live audiences to spread the word of classic melodic rock. Stay tuned, this is only the beginning!!”

Musically OD is very close to their Finnish mates Brother Firetribe, with a slight heavier edge.

Sounds great to me. Vocalist not amazing, but love the first and third songs and the middle one is okay (weak chorus). Definitely looks like something worth checking out, though.

Some nicely done stuff. Sorry to hear of the Frontiers connection, wish they would have stayed indie.

Very curious why you say something like that mate? What's the reason?

 

Signed with Frontiers you'd hope they'll be able to have a well produced product that will reach a much wider audience and hopefully expand the possibility of future albums if they go well.

 

Staying indie, they might never even get to release an album (for a variety of reasons); it'd probably sound like shit, production-wise, it'd be impossible to get and probably only reach an audience of 15 people.

 

Sorry mate, not having a dig at all as you clearly know 100% more about the subject than I, but I find your comment very curious and genuinely want to know the reasoning behind it.

I see it a bit different and based on some feedback from bands that have experienced the label, maybe the dyi approach is a better business case.

 

All speculative of course and it's my opinion, but I don't think a label such as Frontiers is going to get a never to be known outside a very niche market band anymore recognition than they wouldn't get on their own hitting up the many sites that cater to this genre. You Maybe you may see a "better" produced effort but what's lost in that endeavor?

From FB:

 

A note from the band OD: due to scheduling conficts, OD had to part ways with their singer Dan Vasc.It was nice ride while it lasted and we wish all the best for Dan in his future projects.

 

We got many excellent singers looking for opportunity to join the band and we would like them all for their interest towards OD.

Now here is the big news: the new singer of OD is none other than mr. André Linman!

 

André Linman is a 23-year old singer, guitarist and songwriter who is best known for having been the frontman of finnish hard rock/heavy metal band Sturm und Drang!

 

Sturm und Drang rose to fame in Finland when the members were only 15-16 years old. Between 2007 and 2013 the band released three albums receiving two finnish gold records and one platinum record. They have also toured Europe and Japan and sold over 100.000 records worldwide.

 

Everyone is very excited about this collaboration and eagerly working to get the album done with him.

 

Soon you will be hearing the first songs recorded with Andre, there will be killer tunes for you all to listen, so keep on rockin´!

I guess that's pretty cool news. A shame because Sturm and Drang were getting pretty good there and are no doubt defunct now, but good news for this band. Hopefully it's a grand new union.

You loved them but didn't hear the last one? The one that was released 58 years ago? Must have been a, uh, deep love.

 

Off the top of my head, pretty sure that one was their best, easily.

Was Graduation really the last one? That's a shame. What happened to the boys? That album was phenomenal.

Yep. Their third and last one. For now I hope. But I'm afraid the band is finished....

From Frontiers Music:

 

OD is a brand new melodic rock band from Finland who we've recently signed. We'll be releasing their debut album in early 2017, but wanted to give you a preview of their tasty licks before we unveil the first full song later this year.....

If you've been enjoying other recent signings of ours like Cruzh and Palace and also love bands like Eclipse (Sweden), Work of Art, and the like, then this will be right up your alley!

Still sounding pretty decent to me....Always tough to tell from just snippets.

 

Think it'll at least be worth keeping an eye on and giving a chance.

Holy shit, snippets or not, I think that sounds absolutely fantastic. The first song in that trailer is divine. I really, really want to hear this album.

Press release:

 

Up and coming Finnish rockers OD have changed their name to One Desire.

“With a new lineup compared to when we recorded the demos and in order to avoid misunderstandings on the name, we thought it made more sense to call us ONE DESIRE,” says drummer and founding member Ossi Sivula. “We will keep the “old” OD logo but the good thing is that we are finally ready to unleash the music. We’re coming – get ready!”

ONE DESIRE have recently delivered their debut album to the label.Songs have already turned heads in the industry with insiders making comments like: “This band really is excellent, kind of reminds me of hearing H.E.A.T for the first time. Same kind of magic.” or “These songs I listened to are really strong. “Strong contender for album of the year.” and with Serafino Perugino - Frontiers’s very own President – saying: “In the last 20 years it is rare that I have felt so excited about a new band!”

ONE DESIRE is:

- Jimmy Westerlund (producer of Negative, Sturm Und Drang, Joel Madden of Good Charlotte, Pitbull etc.) – guitars
- André Linman (ex Sturm Und Drang) – lead vocals
- Ossi Sivula – drums
- Jonas Kuhlberg (Paul Di´Anno, Cain´s Offering, MyGrain) – bass

Get ready for a mind blowing melodic rock album! More news soon!
