Alien Syndrome 777 are a band with members from Italy, Spain and France that plays an atmospheric and avant garde form of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Outer" which was by Avantgarde Music.
Thunder and rain sounds start off the album along with some elements of ambient and electronic music and a few seconds later spoken word samples can be heard before going into a very fast and raw black metal direction that also uses a great amount of blast beats as well as being heavily influenced by the Norwegian bands.
Avant garde sounds mix in with the heavier parts throughout the recording and the vocals are very grim black metal screams along with a few death metal growls and the riffing can be very progressive and technical at times along with the songs bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
You can also hear a heavy dose of industrial in the bands musical style and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful to them and some songs also bring in a small amount of clean singing and melodic guitar leads and solos while some tracks are long and epic in length and the music has more of a raw and grim atmosphere than most avant garde bands and the last track also brings in a brief use of clean guitars.
Alien Syndrome 777 plays a style of black metal that is in the avant garde direction but with more heaviness and aggression than most bands of this style while also mixing in the early to late 2000's sound into the music, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover Sci Fi and Extraterrestrial Life themes.
In my opinion Alien Syndrome 777 are a very great sounding avant garde black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Bleeding Anthill Of The Universe" and "To Balance And Last". 8 out of 10.
