Orm are a band from Denmark that plays a very melancholic and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their self titled 2017 album which will be released in March by Indisciplnarian.
A very fast and raw black metal sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the vocals bring in a mixture of growls and screams along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic fashion and the riffs also use a great amount of melody.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the tracks being very long and epic in length and female vocals are also added into certain sections of the recording and ritualistic and melodic chants are also used at times and the last two tracks also introduces acoustic guitars onto the album along with a small amount of folk instruments towards the end.
Orm plays a style of black metal that is very raw, melancholic and melodic sounding, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Nordic Paganism, Magick, Ancient Times, and Supernatural Creatures themes.
In my opinion Orm are a very great sounding raw, melancholic and melodic black metal band and if you are a fan of t his musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Blood Of Your Blood" and "Apotheosis". 8 out of 10.
