Arabrot are a band from Norway that has been featured before in this zine with the musical style being a mixture of noise rock and sludge and this is a review of their self titled 2013 album which was released by Fysisk Format.
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars, as for the sound effects which are only used briefly bring an experimental sound to the album.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffs that combine sludge and noise rock together to create a sound of their own with some melody being thrown into the riffing at times and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals range from aggressive shouts, screams, whispers and clean singing as well as some spoken word parts, while the lyrics cover Old Testament, Greek Mythology and the words of George Bataille and Robert Desnos, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Arabrot and if you are a fan of sludge and noise rock, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Throwing Rocks At The Devil" "Blood On The Poet" "Drawing Down The Moon" and "The Horns of The Devil Grow". RECOMMENDED BUY.
