CHAOS PERVERSION emanates from the death-riddled and legendary Chilean extreme metal underground with their annihilating debut LP. If bastions like Force of Darkness, Wrathprayer, or Invincible Force weren’t enough to tell you the stature and excellence that reigns down there in Chile, then perhaps Chaos Perversion will convince you. Their debut MLP Petrified Against the Emanation — premiered in full here today below — has everything their famed and very underrated scene has to offer and then some, packing in almost twenty minutes of immense and light-devouring black/death metal devastation spewed from the iron jaws of hell!
Petrified Against the Emanation unleashes a levitating orb of chaos that hovers above the listener casting an immense and hideous shadow. There isn’t only the iconic sound of Chilean extreme metal in this monster, the whole work reeks and seethes with the careful interweaving of all the band’s influences that include both ancestral and recent American and European black and death metal bands alike, including Incantation, Blasphemy, Krypts, Katharsis, Cultes Des Ghoules and more. The sound oscillates dangerously between thrashy and black metal-derived war-injected assaults (think early Sepultura, or their Chilean black/thrash peers mentioned above) to ominous death-doom-like dirges of dark, crushing, and suffocating ambiance, which allineates Chaos Perversion to the European school of otherworldly Black Death metal spearheaded by bands like Grave Miasma or Pseudogod.
The otherworldly black/death metal assault envisioned by Chaos Perversion officially releases tomorrow Friday, January 21 on digital/LP/MC worldwide via Sentient Ruin, and on CD format via Total Death Records. All hail the Chilean legions of total death!
