Falls Of Rauros are a band from Maine that plays a mixture of black/folk and dark metal and this is a review of their 2011 album "The Light That Dwells In Rotten World" which was released by Bindrune Recordings.
Drums range from slow to midpaced with some ocassional fast drumming and blast beats being used at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they sound very powerful.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast riffs that are mostly rooted in black metal but have some doom and progressive metal influences with a great amount of melody being thrown in, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar leads, as for the accoustic guitars thay bring a progressive and folk music feel to the music with alot of full chords that also add an element of nature to the music.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with some whispered vocals being used briefly on one song, while the lyrics cover nature, misanthrophy and anarchism, as for the production it has a very powerful and dark sound to it.
In my opinion Falls Of Rauros are a very good nature orientated progressive black/folk/dark metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Banished" and "Silence". RECOMMENDED BUY.
