Code biography
CODE is a Norwegian/ English experimental black metal act formed in 2002. The core of the band consists of Kvohst (Mathew McNerney) on vocals, Aort (Andy McIvor) on guitars and Viper (Yusaf "Vicotnik" Parvez) on bass and backing vocals. With guitarist Vyttra and drummer AiwarikiaR (Erik O. Lancelot) the band released the "Neurotransmissions" demo in March 2002. The debut full-length studio album "Nouveau Gloaming" followed in 2005. Kvohst, Vyttra and AiwarikiaR left CODE sometime in 2006. Kvohst would provide vocals to the 2007 "Supervillain Outcast" album by DØDHEIMSGARD. A band Viper is also a member of. Kvohst would return to CODE in 2008 and the three core members recruited session drummer Adrian Erlandsson ( CRADLE OF FILTH, THE HAUNTED, AT THE GATES...etc.) and recorded their second full-length studio album "Resplendent Grotesque". "Resplendent Grotesque" was released through Tabo Recordings on the 1st of June 2009.

CODE´s inclusion in the Prog Archives database was approved by the Progressive Metal Team.

Augur Nox
Code Tech/Extreme Prog Metal

Review by UMUR
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars "Augur Nox" is the 3rd full-length studio album by Norwegian/English black metal act Code. The album was released through Agonia Records in November 2013. Quite a lot of lineup changes have taken place since the release of "Resplendent Grotesque (2009)". It´s actually only founding member/main composer/guitarist Aort who are left in the lineup. Lead vocalist Kvohst has left to concentrate on his dark neofolk act Hexvessel and bassist Viper (aka Vicotnik) has left to once again concentrate on Dødheimsgard. Code always seemed more like a project act than a "real" band, but on "Augur Nox" it seems that Aort has assembled what appears to be a permanent lineup with two guitarists, a bassist, a drummer, and a new lead vocalist in Wacian.

Despite the many lineup changes, the music on "Augur Nox" is unmistakably the sound of Code. The dark atmosphere and subtle use of dissonances, the raspy exteme metal vocals, the clean vocals, and the relatively adventurous progressive song structures are all present and accounted for. I think there´s been a slight change in the riffing department though and I suddenly count Enslaved among the musical references (listen to the opening riff in "Garden Chancery" for proof of that), which I didn´t on the two predecessors. There´s something about the drumming style that leads my thoughts in that direction too. Code are not a poor man´s Enslaved by any means though. They have by now created their own sound and identity. The material on the album are generally very well written and sound inspired. The longer and most progressive tracks like "The Lazarus Cord" and "Harmonies in Cloud" are high quality material packed with great ideas, but that can be said about all tracks on "Augur Nox" (long or short).

While Kvohst is probably one of the most prolific and unique vocalists in extreme metal and therefore always would be difficult to replace, new lead vocalist Wacian actually gives Kvohst a run for his money. Wacian´s clean vocals might not be as unique sounding as Kvohst´s ditto, but they suit the music on "Augur Nox" well and he is both a skilled and passionate vocalist. His raspy black metal styled vocals are fully on par with his predecessor´s and the change on the vocalist spot has actually happened more seamlessly than I had imagined it would.

The sound production is professional, powerful and clear. The band obviously aim at creating a dark atmosphere, but not at the expence of a professional sound production. "Augur Nox" is a high quality release and a great continuation of Code´s career, which wasn´t necessarily in the cards, when you take into consideration the profiles who have left since the predecessor and a 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

Resplendent Grotesque
Code Tech/Extreme Prog Metal

Review by frippism
Collaborator RIO/Avant/Zeuhl Team

5 stars Well, this one took a while to actually click with me. But hell, it did, big time. Huge time. Mega explosion time.

What we have here is a band based both in England and Norway. It is a sort avant-black metal supergroup, with people from Dodheimsgard, Ved Buens Ende, and with such former members such as the singer in Arcturus. But to be honest, he's not really missed. Because Kvohst is here! Kvohst, British Black Metal singer, who was in Dodheimsgard for starters in their fantastic album "Supervillain Outcast"- really truly blows this out of the water. And I mean really. He displays here a fantastic range, a range I didn't hear from him before- and really does make the album for me. That is, not to say the music in itself isn't good- but with Kvohst the music truly meshes into something quite incredible in this album- some of the most memorable, beautiful, and simply catchy melodies that this album dishes out. It is Kvohst that serves it so nicely that I can't imagine the album without him.

So what do we have here? This is music firmly planted in the black metal school, and while I won't say that this album is insanely eclectic, it offers at times extremely powerful riffs and at other times some really interesting chord progressions and songwriting. But again, it's truly Kvohst's vocals that bring it all together. He will usually will go through banshee vocals to growling and finally to this croon, which bizarrely enough can at times remind of Morrisey. This does bring a very different element, a more melodic, though at the same times still very distilling. Kvohst usually also adds vocal harmonies to the recording and the sound is so full and well done that it can get quite beautiful. I feel as if the first song "Smother the Crones" is really a song that shows off the bands sound the best. A huge blasting beginning, impressive banshee vocals, and lastly, an absolutely epic chorus which wins me over with Kvohst's vocals.

With that, may I add that Vicotnik's bass is just superb. Usually he displays these fluid melodic bass lines that are a joy by themselves. But seriously the musicianship here is fantastic all around.

I find I want to keep this one short. Absolute must if you're a fan of the avant-black metal scene, but also perhaps worth checking out even if you're not, as the powerful melodies may win you over.

Nouveau Gloaming
Code Tech/Extreme Prog Metal

Review by UMUR
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars "Nouveau Gloaming" is the debut full-length studio album by multinational experimental black metal act Code. "Nouveau Gloaming" was released in June 2005. In addition to the "regular" CD version the album has also been released in two different LP formats/ versions. One limited to 250 copies and another limited to 50 handnumbered copies.

The band features among others the prolific black metal musicians Kvohst (Mathew McNerney) on vocals who has also been involved with Void and Dødheimsgard and Viper (Yusaf "Vicotnik" Parvez) on bass and backing vocals who is known for his involvement in Ved Buens Ende and Dødheimsgard. As far as I understand Code is mostly guitarist Aort´s (Andy McIvor) baby though.

There are 8 tracks on the 53:54 minute long album. The songs are aggressive yet with a sense for melody and memorability which is mostly due to Kvohst´s diverse vocal delivery. His clean singing is intense and emotional in a dark and slightly monotone fashion while his raspy delivery sounds caustic and aggressive. There are some faster paced sections on the album but the tempo is mostly kept in mid-pace. This is certainly not your ultra fast blast beating kind of black metal album. Those who enjoy some of the above mentioned acts and their more twisted and experimental take on the black metal genre will probably find lots to like here. Maybe some will find it disrespectful if I say this but Code sounds a bit like Dødheimsgard lite to me (The "Supervillain Outcast (2007)" album. Without the samples though).

I would like to give a special mention to Viper´s bass playing on the album, because it´s something of a rarety that you can actually hear the bass in black metal. In this case it´s even very prominant and it´s greatly enjoyable to listen to some of Viper´s killer basslines. We´re not talking technical stuff but rather some melodic and clever lines that enhance the listening experience. The music on the album isn´t overtly experimental and you´ll find many pretty straight forward parts. There´s a will to create original music and experiment with conventions here that I find honourable though. Another great feature on the album are Kvohst´s lyrics. As always they are quite bizarre and dark and they suit the music very well. If I have to make one complaint it´s probably that the songs are at times a bit too lengthy for their own good, but it´s a minor complaint.

The production is professional and suits the music well.

Nouveau Gloaming is a good album by Code and while my rating isn´t a full 4 but rather a 3.5 - 4 star rating, the album is quite the enjoyable journey and it´s definitely recommendable to fans of Dødheimsgard, Void, Ved Buens Ende and Virus.
