Ordo Karnivorum are a duo from Russia that plays a very cold, dark, evil and unholy form of black metal and this is a review of their 2023 album "Noir" which was released by metal Race Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album while the vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched sounding black metal screams. When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling and the riffs also add in a decent amount of melody.
Growls can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while the music also adds in a good amount of old school touches. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them along with the songs also adding in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style as well as a couple of songs also adding in a brief use of spoken words and a couple of tracks also adds in a small amount of clean playing.
Ordo Karnivorum plays a style of black metal that is very aggressive, evil and traditional sounding. The production sounds very raw and raw while the lyrics cover Occultism, Evil and Darkness themes.
In my opinion Ordo Karnivorum are a very great sounding cold, d ark, evil and unholy black metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Darkness Falls" and "Hunger Of the Succubus". 8 out of 10.
