Guitarist and composer Paul Plumeri, Jr. (ex-Isyou), joined by bassist Chris Williams (Dark Waters Fall) and vocalist Max Lichtman (ex-Immolith), founded OWDWYR in 2020.

Receptor offers 15 tracks that explore a spectrum of influences ranging from Car Bomb, Human Remains, and Fleshgod Apocalypse to J.S. Bach, Allan Holdsworth, and Heitor Villa-Lobos.

Receptor features appearances by some of the most skilled and crushing musicians in modern metal, including Navene Koperweis (Entheos, ex-Animals as Leaders), Kenny Grohowski (Imperial Triumphant, John Zorn), Kevin Paradis (Ne Obliviscaris, Benighted), Alex Cohen (Contrarian, ex-Pyrrhon), and many more. With blistering blastbeats, intricate harmonic counterpoint, and ferocious vocals, OWDWYR has crafted a dynamic musical experience that demands attention and never relents.
