In 1992 original members Scott Bryant and Steve Shalaty move to cleveland from painesville to build a band that conveyed the rage and aggression inside of them. Through many trials and tribulations ODIOUS SANCTION was born. With the release of their first demo ODIOUS SANCTION established an excellent local following and started to impress national acts traveling through the region. 1995-After switching guitarists ODIOUS regroup in their hometown and release IGNORANT WASTE. Immediately following the second demo’s debut, ODIOUS starts planning their next studio project. The financially destitute group finally release PUNISHMENT OF LIFE in 1998. This demo did fairly well and started to attract national attention.The band played extensively locally and out of state during the next couple of years and gathered material for their first full length, PSYCHOTICALLY ENRAGED. During 2000 ODIOUS flooded the underground with their newest creation, eventually attracting the attention of UNIQUE LEADER RECORDS who released an updated version of the album in 2001. While the band was readying for an upcoming tour the guitarist abruptly quit. The search for a replacement guitarist proved hopeless and vocalist Scott Bryant had to step up to take over guitar duties. New bass player Adam Schwan was added and the trio released it’s comeback demo TAURUS in 2003. With the band back up to speed and the memory of a missed tour burning inside them, ODIOUS SANCTION recorded 15 songs under the title NO MOTIVATION TO LIVE. After nearly five years ODIOUS SANCTION has reunited with UNIQUE LEADER RECORDS to release NO MOTIVATION TO LIVE in february 2006.
