Pavillon Rouge are a band from France that plays a mixture of black metal and industrial with a touch of new wave and this is a review of their 2015 album "Legio Axis Ka" which will be released on April 20th by Swamp Records.
A very atmospheric and symphonic industrial sound starts off the album along with some melodic yet heavy guitar riffs and grim black metal screams a few seconds later and you can also hear some programmed beats in the background and spoken word parts can also be heard in certain sections of the recording.
Some of the tracks bring in a small amount of clean singing vocals and back up shouts and when solos are utilized they are in a melodic industrial metal direction and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and most of the songs stick to a mid paced musical direction.
Pavillon Rouge takes a more melodic and mainstream form of black metal and mixes it in with industrial and new wave style synths to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in French and cover beauty, innocence, purity and ecstasy.
In my opinion Pavillon Rouge are a very great sounding mixture of black metal and industrial and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Prisme Vers I'Odyssee" "Mars Stella Patria" "Droge Macht Frei" and "Klux Santar". 8 out of 10.
