Odradek Room are a band from Ukraine that plays a very melodic and progressive mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "A Man Of Silt" which was released as a joint effort between Hypnotic Dirge Records and BadMoodMan Music.
A jazz influenced intro starts off the album before adding in some symphonic and epic sounding keyboards which they also mix in with the heavier sections of the songs while the vocals are mostly death metal growls along with a few screams and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
When solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion while the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody along with some acoustic guitars being added into certain sections of the recording which also gives the songs more of a progressive edge as well as the riffing mixing in the heaviness of doom metal.
Spoken word parts can also be heard at times while the high pitched screams also add in a touch of black metal along with most of the tracks being very long and epic in length as well as some tracks also add in a small amount of melodic vocals and elements of post rock are also used at times and all of the songs stick either to a slow or mid paced musical direction, saxophones and female vocals can also be heard briefly.
Odradek Room plays a musical style that takes progressive, melodic death and atmospheric doom metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover thoughts, feelings, dreams and philosophy themes.
In my opinion Odradek Room are a very great sounding progressive and melodic mixture of doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Selfness" "Rain Trip" and "Divide". 8 out of 10.
