A.C.o.D are a band from France that plays a mixture of black, melodic death and thrash metal on this recording and this is a review of their self released 2016 ep "Inner Light".
A very heavy and melodic thrash influenced sound starts off the ep along with soem blast beats and black metal screams a few seconds later and the music also incorporates a great amount of melodic death metal elements along with a few growls and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar leads and solos are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and when synths are utilized they give the music a symphonic edge and back up gang shouts can also be heard at times and the songs also mix in a great amount of Swedish influences.
On this recording A.C.o.D expands on their blackened thrash metal style by adding in elments of melodic death metal this time around, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from A.C.o.D and if you are a fan of black, melodic death and thrash metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "And Darkness Around". 8 out of 10.
