Salo are a band from France that plays a mixture of black metal, crust and industrial and this is a review of their 2021 ep "Sortez Vos Mortis" which will be released in February as a joint effort between Cold Dark Matter Records and Coups de Couteau..
Military music samples start off the ep along with a brief use of spoken word parts before going into a very fast musical direction which also adds in a great amount of black metal style tremolo picking and blast beats. Vocals are mostly crust punk style shouts and melodies are also added into some of the riffing.
Throughout the recording can also also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while industrial elements and synths are also mixed in with the heavier sections of the music at times. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them along with a couple of the tracks also being long and epic in length, spoken word samples can also be heard on some of the later songs and when guitar leads are finally utilized they are also done in a very aggressive yet melodic style.
Salo plays a musical style that takes black metal, crust and industrial and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in French and cover violent and angry themes.
In my opinion Salo are a very great sounding mixture of black metal, crust and industrial and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sans gene ni haine" and "Contagion". 8 out of 1 0.
