Order Ov Riven Cathedrals are a duo from Italy that plays a very technical form of death metal with some elements of industrial and black metal and this is a review of their self released 2018 album "Gobekli Tepe".
A very sci-fi oriented intro starts off the album along with some elements of industrial which also mixes in the heavier sections of the songs before going into a very fast and brutal direction which also utilizes a great amount of blast beats while the vocals are mostly death metal growls.
At times the music gets very technical while atmospheric elements are also brought into some parts of the songs along with the riffs also bringing in a decent amount of melody as well as the tracks also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style.
Spoken word parts can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with some symphonic and black metal elements also being used at times and as the album progresses some avant garde touches are also added onto the recording, female vocals can also be heard briefly.
Order Ov Riven Cathedrals plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in technical death metal while the symphonic, industrial and black metal elements gives the music more originality, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover Ancient Aliens, Antediluvian Civilizations and Nuclear Wars of The Pat themes.
In my opinion Order Ov Riven Cathedrals are a very great sounding technical death metal band with some elements of symphonic, industrial and black metal and if you are looking for something original, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Worship Ov Abduction" "From Neptune Towards Assyria' and "Invocation Ov The Kavod". 8/5 out of 10.
