Code are a band from the United Kingdom that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of progressive black metal and post rock and this is a review of their 2017 album "Lost Signal" which was released by Agonia Records.
Atmospheric sounding synths start off the ep along with some heavy guitars and elements of post metal a few seconds later while the vocals start out in a clean avant garde fashion and you can also hear a decent amount of melody in the guitar riffing along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and a great amount of progressive structures can be heard in the guitar riffing and as the ep progresses grim black metal screams can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and all of the tracks stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction and the last track is very long and epic in length.
On this recording Code focuses more on a progressive style of post metal while still having a black metal edge at times but also moving way from the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover paranoia, illness, personal weakness and death themes.
In my opinion this is another decent sounding recording and if you are a fan of post rock/metal with black metal influences, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Affliction" and "The Lazarus Chord". 8 out of 10.
