REVIEWS

The Obelisk
"It shows that the arc of growth Vokonis enacted even from their earliest demo work had not yet peaked even on Grasping Time, and that on performance and songwriting levels, their will is to keep pushing themselves forward. May they continue to do so for the duration, because as Odyssey readily proves, they’re only more able to create something special for each prior outing."

Angry Metal Guy
"Tempo changes allow the band to intersperse contemplative, slower moments with hard-hitting riff-centric driving passages. This is highly effective on closing numbers “Hollow Waters” and “Through the Depths,” which add up to nearly twenty-one minutes of heavy progressive rock that is catchier than it has any right to be. These songs have a hint of melancholy about them at times, but the arrangements are such that we are drawn into each song as if under a spell."

Metal Hammer PT
"Solidly, “Odyssey” is an effective dichotomy between psychedelicism that explores dreams and the weight of the most tense metal, always with passages blessed by meditative melodies around every corner."

Echoes and Dust

"Opeth are called to mind, but the two very different vocal styles, plus some stellar instrumental passages, where the band really get to imprint their new sound, means that Odyssey really does see the band forging their own identity."

Heavy Blog is Heavy

"I can’t tell whether Vokonis is a more prog version of Mastodon or a sludgier version of Elder, but it doesn’t really matter in the end. I think knowing that someone wants to make this kind of comparison should tell you enough."

Doomed & Stoned

"Picking up on the progressive elements most heavily featured in their last release (2019’s Grasping Time), Odyssey feels like a very successful melding of all of the groups previous efforts."

Headbanger Reviews
"If there is to be any single act to stride that line from one album to the next then I feel there’s little argument to make that Vokonis have a right to make a claim for that very throne of greatness."

Metal Digest
"‘Odyssey’ is the sound of what Mastodon used to sound like when they were the darlings of the progressive metal world as shorter tracks such as ‘Azure’ meld perfectly well with the more elongated runs of ‘Through the Depths’ and the title track."

Metal Rules
"Embracing more of their proggier moments, the result is a record stacked with heavy riffs, terrific melodies and some great instrumental playing from the Swedish trio (and Wiberg)."

Wonderbox Metal
"Vokonis seem quite at ease with crafting music that effortlessly moves between catchy instant appeal and deeper substance and emotion. Of course, these component parts are frequently entwined as one, to great effect."

Metal.de
There are almost no weaknesses on Vokonis fourth album, but plenty of great, unforgettable moments.
