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!

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?

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!

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!

    • Ok Cody, It was 41 vs 330. It's now 63 vs 335, so we're making ground, but you need to fire up and make some contributions. It's your thread and that's what you're hanging by at the moment with the big guy.

    • A little sumthin sumthin from the coolest band east of the Rockies.    Show them some well deserved lovin' fellas!   FuZZrd thanks readers w/an advance download of “Pins & Needles” from their debut LP Near Life Experience being released globally December 10, 2021. From Steve Karas (w/slight edits): FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 3, 2021 FuZZrd's debut studio album: Near Life Experience available December 10, 2021 Download “PINS & NEEDLES” Here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/ Album teaser video: https://bit.ly/FuZZrdAlbumTeaser Pre-order: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com/ Upcoming live show at Minneapolis’ The Southern Theatre December 11, 2021 –  https://southerntheater.org/ Minneapolis, MN – FuZZrd would like to share their gratitude to the sites readers and presents a free download of the song “Pins & Needles” in advance of the band’s debut studio album Near Life Experience which is being released on December 10, 2021. To access the free download or preview the song, click here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/.   FuZZrd guitarist and vocalist Brett Petrusek shares, “Pins and Needles is a personal favorite. It's a song about loss and the overwhelming feeling of anxiety that can often ensue. If you've ever felt so wound up that your skin is crawling you may relate. For me, it's sonically intriguing, it's mysterious and the chorus hits just right. It's wickedly fun to play on guitar, too!" The debut album can be pre-ordered at a discounted price here: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com. The band will perform the day following release day alongside Johnny O' Neil (of Dare Force fame) and up and comers, The Issue at The Southern Theatre in Minneapolis, MN. Tickets for the appearance can be purchased by visiting https://southerntheater.org/. Petrusek reflects, “I'm so very proud of what we have accomplished this past year. It's gratifying to see and hear Near Life Experience in its completed form. It's a powerhouse and definitely fits in the category of ‘album I've always wanted to make’. The chemistry with our producer Jeremy Tappero continued to flourish and we all grew as musicians. I love the songs and sound we've created. It's fresh, and new, and noticeably doesn't chase trends. It stays true to its heavy rock roots. It's so awesome to be a part of FuZZrd coming to life, playing live shows, and sharing our music. The whole of what we have created is truly rewarding. I'm totally grateful to have this group." Bassist and background vocalist Robert Berg states, “Substance of structure. A collection of songs that in my view captures what's truly important for fans of multigenerational hard rock. I love the upfront guitars and inspired solos. There's a maturity in the vocal melodies that catapults the meaningful lyrical content. It was inspiring to witness. Every member brought what was necessary; when necessary. I believe we just barely dipped our toes into what's possible with our current guitar duo's musical chemistry. Special, special, special thanks to Producer Jeremy Tappero. I tell him all the time that my favorite moments in life are sitting in the chair next to him and laying it down. He's a true mentor who seemingly always knows what's right for the band. Brett is quite forward thinking and never short of ideas. FuZZrd will build on the experience and continue to make the rock pound." Guitarist and background vocalist Eric Fairchild offers, “Discovering the chemistry and camaraderie of FuZZrd has been the highlight of a truly chaotic year and a half. Being able to connect and collaborate on new music has been so fulfilling. I’m really proud of the work we’ve put in, and the album that has emerged as a result. The songs on Near Life Experience have been able to capture so many feelings that have been otherwise difficult to express. Plus, it’s always fun to tear it up on the guitar! I’m thrilled to get these songs in front of audiences, and continue to build on what we’ve started." Drummer Scott Savage adds, "I could not be happier with the new record; and it could not have happened without everyone’s dedication and hard work. It’s so gratifying to have this finished product and be able to share with everyone! I’m so proud of my band mates and what we have accomplished. We are definitely fired up about what the future holds for us!" For more information contact: Steve Karas SKH Music -  skaras@skhmusic.com
    • I'm digging this song.  Good stuff.  Background vocals don't bother me at all here.
    • Yeah, my apologies for not checking there first.  Figured H.E.A.T fans that frequent this section would be interested.
