Chaotic Remains - We Are Legion

Chaotic Remains
We Are Legion
by Tina Webber at 27 October 2017, 2:56 AM

After being fragmented for years, it appears that CHAOTIC REMAINS has finally found what makes them whole. The band went through a lot of lineup changes, trial and error to perfect their sound but they persevered and found what makes them CHAOTIC REMAINS. The band categorizes themselves as symphonic death metal. Being an aficionado of melodic death metal, I wasn’t sure what to expect when listening to CHAOTIC REMAINS, but holy fuck tits- I am glad I did. CHAOTIC REMAINS takes metal to a whole new level by exploring other metal components to work with. They have fused a beautiful combination and their hard work has paid off.

“We Are Legion” is set to release on December 1st 2017 and one should definitely take a listen. The album is about the battle between Christianity and Satanism, which results in the fall and rise of Lucifer. So if you are into that sort of thing, this album is for you! I hate the fact that this album only has six tracks. I want to hear more! “We Are Legion” slams first with “Prophecy of the Fallen,” a track that is extremely fast paced, but it is melodic and the use of keyboards give the sound a nice finishing touch and then at 2:57 it shifts course, the keyboards accentuate the guitar squeals and brutal breakdown. Next is “Fate In the Abyss” which has a great melody while staying true to their death metal foundation and then in the middle of the song it turns into a heavier version of NIGHTWISH and I just love it. It is a head banger and the best track on the album.

I really enjoyed “In Need of An Angel” has beautiful notes at first and has more an uplifting and inspiring rhythms that you would find in power metal and then keyboards create a nice atmosphere to the music. The melodic riffs, the brutal vocals, the dark, ominous synthesizers, the heavy breakdowns are all featured in this album, especially on the tracks; “The Fallen King,”  “Dark Ascension” and “Baptised in Ash.” Overall, I think it is great that despite the various changes in the band, they were able to find their sound and produce an album that is truly a fine work of art. I am looking forward to hearing more.
