Pierre Noir are a solo project from Spain that has recently been featured on this zine and on this recording plays a mixture of raw black metal, industrial and techno and this is a review of his 2019 ep "The Wolf Is At Home" which was released by Grabaciones Autobombo.
A very distorted sound starts off the ep before going into more of a heavier and melodic direction along with both of the tracks being very long and epic in length. Programmed beats are also a very huge part of the recording along with some melodic guitar leads being used briefly.
When tremolo picking is utilized they give the songs more of a raw black metal feeling while elements of industrial and techno are also mixed into the heavier sections of the music. Spoken word samples can also be heard briefly along with some tortured voices and grim screams also being utilized at times and most of the music sticks to more of a mid tempo direction.
On this recording Pierre Noir takes raw black metal, industrial and techno and mixes them together to create a sound of his own. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover anti capitalism and political themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Pierre Noir and if you are a fan of raw black metal, industrial and techno, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "The Wolf Is At Home". 8 out of 10.
