Oede are a 1 man band from Norway that plays a mixture of raw black metal, experimental, blues and southern rock and this is a review of their 2013 ep "Sor Norsk Djevel Blues" which was released by Negromancy Records.
Regular drums and bass guitar are absent from this recording while you can still hear some drum programming and sound effects being utilized at times with the music concentrating more on guitars and vocals.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine raw and primitive sounding black metal with experimental, blues, and southern rock to create a sound of their own, and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording, as for the steel guitars they bring a 1920's to early 30's blues sound to the ep.
Vocals range from high pitched black metal screams to spoken word parts and clean singing blues vocals, while the lyrics cover southern and anti christian themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound with the only song being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Oede are a very great sounding hybrid of raw black metal, experimental, blues and southern rock and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED BUY.
