Calvairre/Rigorisme/Throatruiner Records/2012 EP Review


  Calvairre  are  a  band  from  France  that  plays  a  very  dark  form  of  crust/grind  with  sludge  and  post  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2012  ep  "Rigorisme"  which  was  released  by  Throatruiner  Records.

  Drums  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats,  while  the  bass  has  a  very  strong,  heavy  and  powerful  sound  to  it  with  riffs  that  dominate  throughout  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  riffs  that  combine  crustcore,  sludge,  post  metal,  noise  rock  and  hardcore  together  to  create  their  own  sound  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  presentr  on  this  recording.

  Vocals  are  a  mixture  of  high  pitched  sludge  screams  and  deep  growls,  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  and  hateful  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it.

  In  my  opinion  Calvairre  are  a  very  great  sounding  dark  crustcore/sludge  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  style,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Gratitude"  and  "Castration">  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
