Sordide are a band from France that plays a very fast and aggressive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "La France a peur" which was released by Avantgarde Music.
A very powerful bass guitar starts off the album along with some drums and grim black metal screams for a few seconds alter which also leads up to the music going for more of a fast and raw musical direction along with some blast beats and the music and vocals also bring in more of an angry and hateful sound as the album progresses.
Throughout the recording there is a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with most of the tracks being very long and epic in length and the songs also bring in a good mixture of both the old school and modern black metal sound as well as adding in some progressive elements and deeper growls in certain sections of the recording.
A decent amount of melody can be heard in the music at times and the bass guitars also mix in a few leads with the guitar riffs adding in more of a darker black metal sound to the recording and all of the tracks stay in a very heavy, raw and aggressive musical direction while the last track does bring in a brief use of clean playing.
Sordide plays a very raw and aggressive style of black metal that brings in a very powerful bass guitar sound as well as having a sound that will appeal to both modern and old school fans of the genre, the production sounds very raw yet powerful while the lyrics are written mostly in French and cover violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion Sordide are a very great sounding raw and aggressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Blame "L, Innocence" and "Violence". 8 out of 10.
