A.c.o.D are a band from France that plays a mixture of heavy, thrash, death and black metal with a musical style they call 'blended metal' and this is a review of their 2014 ep "Another Path" which was released by Doweet Records.
A very heavy and dark death metal sound starts off the ep and after a few seconds the music gets more up beat and vocals which use growls, screams, and shouts are added into the music and after a few seconds you can hear atmospheric sound s in the background along with a small amount of clean singing.
Blast beats can be heard throughout the recording along with a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the riffs and solos also bring a great amount of melody into the bands musical style and as the ep progresses a brief use of acoustic guitars find their way onto one of the tracks along with the following tracks having a more modern day metal feeling to them.
A.c.o.D combine a variety of many different styles together black, death and thrash together to create a sound of their own as well as adding in a good amount of melody, atmosphere and a modern feeling to their music, the production sounds very professional sound to it while the lyrics cover dark, violent and war themes.
In my opinion A.c.o.D are a very great sounding mixture of black, death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Another Path" and "Words Of War". 8 out of 10.
