The following contribution is this album from the band Nero Order.
From San Francisco, U.S.A. comes Nero Order, a foursome that plays some great Sludge with Doom and Metal influences. Their debut album The Tower contains four song that can be described as heavy. These songs are quite long (from 9 up to 17 minutes). With these four songs, Nero Order gives you a clue of their capabilities. Their music is aggressive with a dramatic touch. Absolutely worth a listen! Enjoy!
Avant-metal alchemists Nero Order fuse elephantine rhythms with vast, tragic melodies and moody, severe vocals — concocting a sound that is simultaneously abrasive and consonant, dynamic and cacophonous; academic in scope and violent in delivery.
Though formed in early 2006, Nero Order has willfully chosen to stay silent and hidden, focusing on crafting their Great Work: the full-length album The Tower. Consisting of four meticulously composed movements, The Tower is an exercise in duality, both aurally and aesthetically. Sonically dense, ambitiously constructed, and intensely executed, the songs that comprise The Tower are stylistically without par in the current rock landscape.
The gravity of mid-late period Neurosis, the frenetic energy of Junkyard-era Birthday Party, the minor melodic sense of Metallica’s Master of Puppets, the staggering volume and intensity of early Swans, the grandiosity of Pink Floyd’s Meddle, and the riff-obsession of Black Sabbath.
