Apart from trying to appear “old school” by saying they have influences of the “Floridian/Brazilian” style of death metal, and the rad artwork of Paolo Girardi (the guy who made the covers of Blasphemophagher) which might lead one to the fallacy of “old school” death metal so popular nowadays (everyone is saying that for fear of being labeled plastic, or whatnot), Chaos Inception is a name to keep.
They are rather a technical death metal band in the vein of Krisiun and Nile… okay, maybe not so extreme, but definitely having influences from.
The Abrogation is their second release and not stylistically different from their first album and it showcases 9 tracks packed in to only 30 minutes.
The songs sound alike in the first minutes and your ears will experience a delay in getting used to the music. Well produced, with a good sound, the vocals are not innovative, but the guitar licks are something notable and they keep appearing throughout the CD.
These are what separate one song from another, e.g., the second song Phalanx (The Tip of the Spear) is recognizable from them.
Do you like brutal blast beats? Yes? there are a plenty here to revel in. Do you like unrecognizable vocalizations? There are lots here too.
The highlights are Pazuzu Infernal and Black Blood Vortex- not by chance, songs where the vocals of Chris White are something notable.
All in all, The Abrogation is a pleasant record. However it isn’t a breakthrough in style. Anyway if you like your death metal in a traditional and well executed manner, Chaos Inception is a band to look at.
