Chaos, Bringer Of All Revelations
Well, nothing new from Brazil... HORNED GOD create brutal, mostly fast Death Metal that sounds like a mixture of KRISIUN and REBAELLIUN (ex-member Fabiano Penna actually is in HORNED GOD) and although there are some interesting moments and convincing songs on "Chaos...", it does not save the Brazilian four-piece from being unoriginal and sadly... boring! After REBALLIUN's "Annihilation", ABHORRENCE' "Evoking The Abomination" and the second KRISIUN enough was said on new Brazilian Death Metal and as long as the differences between all those bands stay as marginal as they seem to be at the moment, I can not find a reason why one should need more of the same, blasting, screechy lead infested stuff. KRISIUN did their best to experiment with their last two CD's and failed, HORNED GOD did not dare enough - one slow song and loads of squeaky technical solos is not very innovative - to have a chance in direct competition with the bands I mentioned above. Don't get me wrong, "Chaos, Bringer..." is not a bad album and HORNED GOD, who released an EP and another album named "Absit" before, might satisfy all die-hard Brazilian Death Metal fans, but they will not surprise anyone at all! The band should have tried to keep the song writing as concise as in tracks 5 and 7, but they keep on soloing and soloing, blast like beasts and simply lose track towards the end. Give them a chance, if you still need stuff like that, I don't. For additional info visit: www.listenable.net.
