CHAOSWOLF
CHAOSWOLF
Templo De Palabras Muertas
(Symbol Of Domination Productions / Satanath Records)
48:38min

Mexico's own CHAOSWOLF have returned with "Templo De Palabras Muertas", a follow-up to their 2013 debut "The Fall Of The Idols". The band plays raw Black Metal (think HORNA, old DARKTHRONE, BEHEXEN), the vocals sound similar to old BURZUM, and to date they have 3 demos, 3 splits, a compilation and 2 full length albums released. So, at this point they should have their sound pretty much refined. It is always interesting to check out bands from Mexico as they have had a solid turnout of bands and rarely dissappoint. The album starts out with the song 'La Escision De Ouroboros', a rather atmospheric track that is a solid intro, good drums / keyboards, and the vocals were spot on. Things pick up with track number 2 'Orgasmortem' and with 'Irrevencia', however, the vocals begin to drag out with this track, but the guitars really were the showcase on this song. Nice riffs and an solid guitar solo / hook at the end of the song that slowly fades away. 'La Muerte De Calvarium Funestus' is a good track (solid drum and guitar work) and also the longest song on the album. Grim and evil is the best way to describe the song, but again the vocals were too much and just suffocated the song. Things really pick up with the track 'El Discurrir De Un Cancer Del Ser', the guitar sound reminds me of "Aske" era BURZUM. 'Extraduccion A Lo Inconsciente' is a nice instrumental track with a good keyboard sound, very relaxing. 'Wings Of Paradox' follows suite where 'Extraduccion....' left off with a good instrumental part but then quickly the guitars / drums / vocals kick in. This song again starts with a slower tempo but picks up speed as the song progresses. All in all the music is your run of the mill raw Black Metal, nothing over the top or breaking new ground. The riffs and drums can be catchy at times, but to me the vocals were overbearing and annoying at times... really killed it for me. The drums really needed better mics / production because the drummer does provide a good backbone to the album. Judge for yourself and listen to the album.
