Rorcal are a band from Switzerland that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style on this recording that I would describe as being a mixture of dark ambient, sludge, doom and raw and primitive black metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Vilagveve" which was released by Cal Of Ror Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with some fast drumming and blast beats being utilized at times, while the synths when they are used bring a dark ambient/drone sound to the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful s ound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine heavy sludge and doom with dark, raw and primitive black metal with a great amount of heavy distortion as well as a brief use of melody being thrown into the riffing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are mostly high pitched depressive screams that have a depressive tone to them at times as well as a brief use of male and female that bring an opera feeling to the recording, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, raw and primitive sound while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding from Rorcal and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Doom" "Black V" and "Black VI". RECOMMENDED BUY.
