“Magic Chaos Psychodelia”
This was a difficult review to write because I really like this album. There is so much music out there that you often have to wonder how much gets overlooked do to volume of music to listen to. Magic Chaos Psychodelia has an abundance of the Black Metal elements that a listener would expect but as the album progresses you just feel the atmosphere take over and there is something else going on. Sometimes you immediately hear tremolo picking and blast beats, at that point you have to decide does the production and vocals appeal to me enough to continue. When you first hear the first track Stary Throne Of It there is a small slow build and then blast beat and scream. If you only get that far you miss out. This is a great song that leads right into another great song
Is Venit Ex Abyssu. The pace is pretty consistent until Inner Psy Trip which has the most experimental elements of time and melody.
The guitars have great tones, from clean melodic to distinct fuzz to the rhythm.
Fotis Bernando the drummer form Septic Flesh in handling the production made a great balance between the drums and guitars which are very complimentary as to one overshadowing the other.
To my favorite part. Serpent’s vocals are awesome. There is a full strong presence to his mid to high rasp. While not trying to get crazy with range which he has, he does change the dynamics of his attacks and gives melodic parts brutality. He has the ability sustain notes without it get boring or convoluted.
If you like Black Metal I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Magic Chaos Psychodelia.
