Orm are a band from Denmark that plays a very raw and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Ir" which will be released on August 30th by Indisciplinarain.
Atmospheric sounding drones start off the album along with some distorted yet melodic guitar leads a few seconds later. Both of the tracks are very long and epic in in length and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can be heard which also gives the tracks more of a raw feeling.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the vocals being mostly deep yet grim sounding black metal screams. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as the riffs also adding in a good amount of melody.
Acoustic guitars can also be heard briefly as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them along with the music also having its progressive moments, synths can also be hear d in certain sections of the recording and clean playing can also be heard briefly. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Danish and cover mythical tales about man and nature.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Orm and if you are a fan of raw and melodic black metal, you should check out t his album. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Baer Solen Ud". 8 out of 10.
