Chronosphere - Embracing Oblivion

Embracing Oblivion
by Kostas Kiriakis at 13 May 2014, 10:49 AM

Sophomore album for the Athenian thrashers and anticipation is hitting reds. For those unaware, CHRONOSPHERE are one of the rising underground Thrash acts Greece has to offer. Given their debut “Envirusment” was a great release as Thrash goes, these guys are now here to prove they are no shooting star.

Scorching ultra-sonic riffage greets us right from the start. Just as it should be. “Killing My Sins” is one of those songs that make you say “Damn, I really wanna see this live”. The album follows suit with tunes like “One Hand Red Per Saint”, “Force Fed Truth”, well, all of them, no need to just write the songs once more, you have the tracklist over there anyway. Just rest assured, headbanging galore is coming your way.

Fast killer riffs, frantic guitar solos,  great vocals by Spyros supplemented by the rest of the guys in choruses, and furious bone-crushing drums by Thanos. Kinda reminds me of older TESTAMENT meets OVERKILL meets EXODUS, and all in a good way. Surely not pionnering stuff, that has been done back in the 80's anyway. But no rip-off either, CHRONOSPHERE pay homage to their heroes, but do that honestly and you can clearly hear it.

Running at 41 minutes, “Embracing Oblivion” is a hell of an album, thrashy and fun as fuck, that you're bound to thoroughly enjoy, if you're into Thrash anyway. And if you're not, who knows, these guys might make you like it.
