Orbseven are a 1 man band from Texas that plays a mixture of ambient, experimental, black and death metal and this is a review of his self released 2014 album ".ismos".
Melodic chanting starts off the album before going into a heavier musical direction as well as having some distorted spoken word parts and vocals being added into the music and after while ambient sounds start becoming more a part of the recording as well as having acoustic guitars being added into certain sections of the recording.
On some of the other songs you can hear some psychedelia being added into the guitar work and the vocals also start using more of a clean singing style while the music also starts adding more influences from post rock and industrial and all of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them.
When solos and leads are utilized they are in more of a melodic direction and halfway through the album there is are a couple of instrumental tracks which is more in an ambient direction along with the guitars being in a more calm and soft manner and the music reverts back to a heavier sound on the following track while also retaining the progressive feeling that is presented throughout the recording and every song sounds very different from each other.
Orbseven creates a very original sound with the music being heavily rooted in experimental and ambient while adding some black and death metal into the heavier parts of the music which also gives the album a style that has rarely been attempted, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics seem to be more philosophical and science orientated in nature.
In my opinion Orbseven are a very great sounding mixture of experimental, ambient, black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should c heck out this project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Gravity Room" "Staircases" and "Omniversal". 8 out of 10.
