Carne are a duo from France that plays a mixture of sludge, noise and post hardcore and this is a review of their 2017 album "Modern Rituals" which will be released in February by Vox Project.
A very powerful bass guitar sound along with drums start off the album which also leads up to some heavier sludge metal riffing a few seconds later while the vocals have more of an angry shouting approach to them and the music also mixes in a great amount of noise rock elements which also gives the songs a 90's feeling.
While the music has a lot of old school influences it still sounds very modern at the same time while the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody and after awhile elements of post hardcore are added onto the recording and one of the tracks is very long and epic in length and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic style and there is also a brief use of clean singing as the album progresses and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction.
Carne plays a musical style that takes sludge metal, noise rock and post hardcore and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and angry themes.
In my opinion Carne are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, noise and post hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this duo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Inked Mask" "Cloak" and "Lord Less". 8 out of 10.
