World Of Metal And Rust are a 1 man band from Portland with a musical style I would describe as being a combination of industrial, experimental, dark ambient and drone and this is a review of their 2013 album "Industrial Noir" with the recording more a continuation of the last album from the composer's previous black metal project Mara.
Sound effects and synths bring in elements of dark ambient, drone, noise, experimental and industrial to create a sound of their own bringing up dark visions with a some spoken word elements being added in as well along with a brief use of drum programming.
Song themes cover darkness, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it with a mixture of short and long songs that have alot more darkness than some current black metal recordings while having no metal sound in the music.
In my opinion World Of Metal And Rust are a very great sounding hybrid of industrial, experimental, d ark ambient and drone and if you are a fan of t his musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "World Of Rust" "The Abyss" "World Of Mystery" and "World Of Fog". RECOMMENDED BUY.
