Cober Od are a band from France that plays a blacked mixture of industrial, ritual and experimental and this is a review of their 2015 album "/Le Revers du Soleil" which was reeased as a joint effort between Mantra Spentra and Nomos Dei.
The album starts out silently before sounds are brought onto the recording and after awhile fields recordings and noises become a huge part of the music along with some elements of ambient along with some vocals that are done in more of a grim black metal fashion and a good portion of the tracks are long and epic in length.
At times the music can be very tribal, experimental and ritualistic sounding along with elements of drone and some songs also bring in a small amount of spoken word parts and as the album progresses elements of harsh noise, power electronics and industrial start becoming a huge part of the bands musical style which also brings in ancient shamanistic and animism rituals from the early primitive beginnings of humankind.
Cober Ord plays a musical style that takes underground industrial, experimental, noise, drone and ritualistic music and mixes them with black metla screams to create a style of their own, the production sounds very dark and raw while the song themes deal with Occultism, Rituals and Animism.
In my opinion Cober Ord are a very great sounding blackened mixture of industrial, drone, experimental and ritualistic music and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cimetiere Chimeres" "Danse Pierre" and "Metempsychosis". 8 out of 10.
