Vous Autres are a duo from France that plays a mixture of black, doom and sludge metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Champ Du Sang" which will be released in April by Sleeping Church Records.
Clean playing and atmospheric soundscapes start off the album before going into more of a heavier sludge metal direction which is also very heavily influenced by doom metal. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark, dissonant and melodic style and the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams.
A great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the riffs also bring in a great amount of dark sounding melodies. Death metal growls are also added into some parts of the music while the keyboards when they are utilized also gives the songs more of an atmospheric feeling.
Clean vocals can also be heard briefly along with the leads also adding in elements of post metal as the album progresses and all of the music sticks to either a slow or mid tempo direction and the album closes with an instrumental. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in French and cover the contemporary world and the multiple delusions of human nature.
In my opinion Vous Autres are a very great sounding atmospheric mixture of black, sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sans Lendemain" "Tes Jours Passes" and "La Tristesse De Tes Deboires". 8 out of 10.
