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
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.
