MetalBite Review by JD on 8/12/2015
France has been exploding in the metal world with big and bold music that is contradictory to what the country usually is all about, especially with all of the black metal that they have been producing. Taking their cues from bands such as Marduk
but mostly from all of the Scandinavian black metal is a new act... Incipient Chao
Hailing from the Western City of Nantes in France, Incipient Chaos
seems to have come out of the blue- offering up some raging BM. Hovering between Nordic styled BM and some nasty grind parts, this band powers through like a tank against unarmed ceramic garden gnomes. Taking the blueprint of what black metal is, they infuse into it a powerful originality mixed with almost daring melodies to create a very complex album that both impresses and satisfies even the hardened metalhead.
Five songs offered, five impressive songs given to the drooling masses. From start to finish, Incipient Chaos
seems to go out of their way to make innovative and commanding form of BM that is clearly all their own, a feat that the genre has needed to happen for very long time. I liked the entire album a whole lot, but certain purists in the black metal world might seriously disagree with me.
The CD is not perfect, but that is what makes the recording stand out and make you summon the dark lord a few times as well. I enjoyed Incipient Chaos
ís album more and more and I am just thinking it might be worth a few more plays as well. It is one of those albums that youíll ether love or hate- just take the time to make your own mind up.
