Get to know Extreme progressive metal band Orob!

French progressive extreme metal act

Orob is back with “Aube Noir”, its first LP.

Founded in 2010, Orob quickly built

itself a solid sound of its own. It comes

through a heavy and misty blackened prog

metal switching from majestic atmospheres

to abrasive riffing and hypnotic clean guitars.

Borrowing the powerful rock’n roll

structures of Enslaved, mixing them with

the avant-garde madness of bands such as

Code or S.U.P. and a dose of nearly gothic,

doomish coldness, they carved their path

through two EPs and shows with influential acts

such as Solstafir, Carnival in Coal, Dagoba and

many others.

The story of Aube Noir starts where

“Into the Room of Perpetual Echoes”

ends. It takes the form of a one hour long

concept album, nine epic titles pushing

further the progressive limits of the combo.

A great fresco of hope and despair about

nature, progress and the stories we build to

make sense of our existence.
