Edremerion are a band from France that plays an avant garde form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Ambre Gris" which was released as a joint effort between Symbol Of Domination and Anesthetize Productions.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album along with some melodic riffing which also adds in some progressive structures at times while the vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams along with the solos and leads also adding in a great amount of melody and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
When tremolo picking is utilized it gives the songs more of a raw feeling while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the tracks being very long and epic in length as well as the music also having its avant garde moments, throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some tracks also bring in classical guitars and clean vocals and as the album progresses a brief use of spoken word parts can also be heard
Edremerion plays a style of black metal that is very avant garde yet aggressive at the same time, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in French and cover death and philosophy themes.
In my opinion Edremerion 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 recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Deule" and "Dechets Nes". 8 out of 10..
