Ecorche are a duo from Pennsylvania that plays an experimental and industrial form of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Necrotic Minds" which was released by Merdumgiriz Records.
A very heavy industrial influenced guitar sound starts off the album along with some blast beats that also takes the music into a faster direction as well as adding grim black metal screams unto the recording and some parts of the songs also bring in a small amount of clean vocals and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they add more melody onto the recording.
Spoken word parts can be heard in some parts of the songs and the tracks also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording while the faster sections also mix in more of a raw style of black metal and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and some songs also bring in a small amount of clean playing and the music also mixes in elements of experimental and noise.
Ecorche plays a musical style that has its roots in black metal and also mixes in elements of experimental and industrial to create an original sound of their own, the production sounds very dark, heavy and raw while the lyrics cover anti religion, nightmares and psychological themes.
In my opinion Ecorche are a very great sounding mixture of black metal. industrial and experimental and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Vast Frozen Hell" and "Nightmare". 8 out of 10.
