A Band Of Orcs are a band from California that play a blackened form of death thrash and this is a review of their 2012 album "Adding Heads To The Pile" which was released by IME Entertainment.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times t hey have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced death thrash riffs that are mixed with black metal as well as some melodies being thrown into t he riffing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos and leads, as for the classical guitars when t hey are utilized they use finger picking to add more melody to t he music.
Vocals range from death/thrash style shouting, deep death metal growls and high pitched black metal screams, while the lyrics cover elves and trolls with a touch of Anglo Saxon Mythology, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion A Band Of Orcs are a very great sounding blackened death/thrash hybrid and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "When The Hills Run Red" "Wyrd Of The Winter Wolf" "Stormbringer" and "Fall Of The Fire Lord". RECOMMENDED BUY.
