Chaos are a band from India that plays a very old school form of thrash metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Violent Redemption" which was released by Transcending Obscurity India.
The album begins with dark sounding intro which uses synths and sound effects before going into a heavy, fast and old school thrash metal assault along with a small amount of blast beats and then the aggressive vocals start to kick in and after awhile bass and guitar solos are added into the music as well as a good amount of melody.
As the album progresses the old school thrash metal assault continues and you can also hear a small amount of melody in the vocals as well as a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as bringing in spoken word samples at times and the music sticks to an old school direction with none of the modern metal elements being added in and there is also a brief use of clean playing being utilized on one song.
While there is nothing original on this record, Chaos still show they know their old school thrash metal very well and they also display the right amount of talent and aggression for this musical genre.
Song lyrics cover violent, hateful and everyday themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy, old school and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Chaos are a very great sounding old school thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Torn" "Heaven's Gate" "Merchant of Death" and "Cyanide Salvation". 8 out of 10.
