ORION
Mysterivm Cosmographicvm
(Iron, Blood And Death Corporation)
34:38min

“Mysterivm Cosmographicvm” is the first full length by ORION from Chile. Their last release was a demo in 2007. In one simple line, I can say this is pretty much the fantastic South American relentless sound everybody absolutely digs! ORION is not winning any awards for inventions, however what they manage to accomplish is to put out a slab of old school worship that completely rips from start to finish. There are no deviations, no moments of loss of direction, this is just an all out attack on the senses. The album keeps getting better track by track. The sound is thick, there are no electronics that get in the way here. This is perhaps one of the best time travel capsules around! The sound takes us right back to the late 80s to mid 90s evil atmospheric attack. Really well written and it will be an absolute treat in a live setting. At 34 minutes, the album is just perfect! The solos are fantastic, they’re aggressive and don’t lose out on melody, which we seldom experience these days. The band manages to do this on literally every single track, which is brilliant! The rhythm is punchy, the bass is audible, well mixed in and sounds great. The drumming is perfect, no BPM gimmicks or such. The vocals truly fit in well with the rest of the music, they’re right out of the depths of sonic hell. Track # 4, ‘The Unreality Of Time’, offers a respite to the constant riff attack, the band gets together to a slower plane yet managing to retain the viciousness. At 4:53, ‘Unreasonaed Perceptions’ is the longest track on the record with an absolute killer solo that takes us back to the classic Thrash era, simply fantastic! Needless to say, the band keeps you completely engaged from start to finish with this utterly delicious slab of Metal. If you’re a fan of early SEPULTURA or if you like classic Thrash or if you’re just a regular fan of Metal music, you need to check this album out immediately. What ORION manages to do is take in the classic sound and place themselves in the cracks of time effortlessly. On the whole the debut from this Thrash / Death outfit from Chile is a complete riot.
