The Silver Cord/ 2008 CD Review

The Silver Cord are a band from Colorado that plays a very experimental form of dark/black metal and this is a review of their self released 2008 demo.

Drum programming is mostly slow beats, while the keyboards are very tragic sounding with some influences from old gothic rock and ambient music, as for the bass playing it is all slow playing that follows the riffs that are coming out of the guitar.

Guitars are mostly acoustic folk sounding open chord riffs that are very depressive and full of sorrow, while the electric guitars are very slow and doom sounding with a black metal edge.

Vocals are mostly clean singing vocals that have a very dark feel with a small amount of black metal vocals being used at times, while the lyrics cover sorrow, sadness and depression, as for the production it sounds very professional and you can hear all of the instruments that are present on this recording.

In my opinion this was a good album from the Silver Cord and while this does not has as many black metal influences as their newest release which i will do a review on shortly, this is still a good depressive piece of art which is good to listen to at times. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE ""The Voices Of Many" and "Violate Me". RECOMMENDED.
