Outre are a band from Poland that plays a very modern form of black metal with elements of thrash, death, prog and post and this is a review of their self released 2013 ep "Tranquility".
Drums range from slow, mid paced playing with some fast drumming and blast beats being present on this recording, while the sound effects when they are utilized bring elements of ambient and prog to the recording along with a brief use of saxophones, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast modern black metal riffs that also combine influences from thrash, death, post and prog together to create a sound of their own along with a good amount of melody being thrown into the riffing along with some soft and clean playing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding post black metal guitar leads and solos which also use some extreme metal elements.
Vocals range from deep to high pitched black metal screams that have a very depressive tone to them at times as well as some whispers, while the lyrics cover Nature, Religion and Occultism, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, and heavy sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this ep.
In my opinion Outre are a very great and original sounding modern black metal band with elements of thrash, death, post and prog and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Of Drowning" and "Sea Of Mercury". RECOMMENDED BUY.
