Sordide are a band from France that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very raw form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Fuir La Lumiere" which will be released in October by Avantgarde Music.
A very fast and raw black metal sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording and the vocals are mostly grim screams and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while some of the riffs bring in a small amount of melody while some of the riffing also brings in a touch of black'n'roll and the vocals also have a punk edge at times and when guitar leads a re utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic direction and there is also a brief use of clean guitars,
Sordide creates another recording that remains true to the raw style of black metal from their previous release, the production sounds very raw yet powerful at the same time while the lyrics are written in French and cover violent themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Sordide and if you are a fan of raw black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Revolte" and "Sans Regrets". 8 out of 10.
