Echancrure are a band from France that started out as more post black metal but evolved more into dark ambient/drone with influences from industrial, experimental, doom and black metal with this recording and this is a review of their self released 2012 album "Paysage.Octobre".
Noise effects bring a very dark avant garde industrial feeling to the music, while the synths have a very dark ambient sound to them mixed in with some depressing sounding keys that have the feeling of some classical music being played on a piano, as well as some evil sounding violins.
Guitars are all noisy sounding leads with some noisy distortion that gives the music a black metal/drone feeling while the spoken word parts bring a depressive feeling to the music with a brief use of clean singing vocals and there are no lyrics present, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Echancrure are a very good with their experimental dark ambient/drone band with a doom and black metal edge and while this might not appeal to the close minded fans of their early stuff you should enjoy this if you are more into experimental dark ambient. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sans titre 4 " "Sans titre 8" and "Sans titre 9". RECOMMENDED BUY.
