Fleur Rouge are a duo from India that plays post black metal and this is a review of their self released 2020 ep "Ballades En Ville".
A very fast and raw sound starts off the ep which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams while the synths also add in some post rock elements as well as giving the music more of an atmospheric feeling along with a touch of ambient.
At times the music also captures a very lo-fi atmosphere while the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic post metal style. Most of the black metal screams are added in the background along with one track also adding in some vocals into the softer sections of the music and most of the heavier sections of the music stick to a very fast and raw style.
Fleur Rouge plays a style of post black metal that is very raw, lo-fi and atmospheric sounding. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark, depressive and urban themes.
In my opinion Fleur Rouge are a very great sounding post black metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Suicide In Shibuya" and "Ciel Triste". 8 out of 10.
