Rorcal are a band from Switzerland that has been featured before in this zine and plays a raw style of black metal which they also mix with doom metal, sludge and drone and this is a review of their live 2014 album "Vilagveve - Live In Geneva" which was released by Cal of Ror Records.
Percussion sound and drums start off the album along with some synths and drones a few seconds later and on the second track the music starts going for more of a doom and sludge metal sound along with some high pitched screams that bring more of a black metal influence into the bands musical style.
A small portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and after awhile the band starts adding in blast beats and more of a raw black meal direction into certain sections of the recording as well as taking the black metal parts and adding in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts which also gets mixed in with the bands sludge roots.
As the album progresses you can hear the crowd reacting more to the music along with the band adding in a small amount of operatic female vocals and classical influences which also return on a later track as well before returning back to a more heavy and blackened musical direction and on the last track they have K.K Null and Process of Guilt as quests
Rorcal takes every song of their 2013 album and plays them all live as well as bringing more of a raw black metal approach out in the live setting while the live material still has a bit of a doom and sludge sound, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics focus more on a dark subject manner.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Rorcal and if you enjoyed their studio material, you should enjoy the live album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "D' "IV" and "VI". 8 out of 10.
