Omrade are a band from Sweden that plays an avant garde form of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Edari" which will be released in April by My Kingdom Music.
A very dark atmospheric and ambient sound starts off the album and a few seconds later clean singing vocals are added onto the recording along with a small amount of saxophones and after a few minutes black metal screams become a huge part of the music and the synths also get more symphonic and also add in an influence on classical music.
Elements of industrial can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording along with some traces of trip hop and electronic music and as the album progresses acoustic guitars can be heard in certain sections of some of the tracks along with spoken word parts and female vocals being utilized at times and there are also a few tracks that are long and epic in length and the music gets more progressive halfway through the recording.
Omrade creates and album that brings in a variety of many different musical genres from black metal, avant garde, trip hop, electronica, ambient, industrial and post rock to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in a mixture of Swedish and English and cover dark and psychotic themes.
In my opinion Omrade are a very great sounding avant garde/post metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mostsogn" "Satellite And Narrow" and "Friendly herpes". 8 out of 10.
