Chaos Plague are a band from Italy that has been featured before in this zine and plays a progressive form of death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Extinction through Annihilation" which was released by Revalve Records.
A very dark sounding violin starts off the album bringing in elements of classical music onto the recording as well as adding in an orchestra and after the intro the music gets more heavy along with some death metal growls and melodic guitar leads and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also mix in a lot of technical, progressive and jazz structures and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while also mixing in acoustic guitars at times and there is also a brief use of melodic vocals and whispers.
A great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and some of the guitar riffing also mixes in a great amount of melody and as the albums progresses elements of electronic music can be heard at times while later tracks also incorporate high pitched screams and they also bring in an instrumental before returning back to vocal tracks as well as adding in a brief use of spoken word samples.
Chaos Plague plays a style of death metal on this recording that has its brutal moments while focusing more on technical and progressive elements and adding in a touch of jazz to create a recording that is more different than most bands of this genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Nietzscheism, Existence, Death and Mind themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Chaos Plague and if you are a fan of progressive death metal, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Coil" "Chirality" "Fall Of Reason" and "Sinner's Regret". 8 out of 10.
