Architecture of Chaos
by Craig Rider at 01 January 2018, 1:28 AM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I'm proud to present to you: SATANIC; hailing from Canadian grounds - performing Thrash/Death Metal, on their 1st debut album entitled: “Architecture Of Chaos” (released December 10th, 2016).

Since formation in 2016; the quintet in question have unveiled their debut album: “Architecture Of Chaos”. 8 tracks ranging at around 40:18; the quartet deliver an intricately designed formula of hard-hitting arrangements of destructively chaotic developments. “Mephistophelian” opens up this organically raw record with constructively distinctive elements of old-school Thrash/Death Metal amalgamations with modernized technical machinery, SATANIC deliver a savagely sinister replica while implementing a more deadly aesthetic on the songwriting/sound production process. The furiously menacing riff begins the song with a groovy substance built in that is relentlessly motivating, and the deep, guttural growls of Izaac Beaudoin contributes an excelling amount of consistently concrete instrumentation and musicianship – all is stellar so far, and makes this thrasher happy that there is a contemporary band so concise to the original source of sub-genres in place.

Consisting of complex dexterity from guitarist Guillaume Petit; who compiles an efficient amount of chugging maliciousness that packs a massive punchline of borderline foundations, the rough edges in the mix gives off a captivating experience. “World Of Chaos” is a hammering track, showcasing thunderously explosive grooves which displays a blistering array of sufficient contrast and attributional adroitness. Powerhouse drummer Martin Cole distributes a pulverizing, dominated proficiency that's profusely executed. “Processing The Undead” is a typical thrash 'n' death song that pummels your being with intense robustness, the crushing blasting demonstrates a grandiose of immense manifestations of salubrious neck swinging entertainment. The bass is also rhythmically timed, and the dynamic hostility provides a nice chunk of enlightening madness - “Architecture Of Apocalypse” portrays a solid emphasis on this slab of diligent craftsmanship.

Armageddon” fiercely supplies a unique component of melodic capabilities while combined with an elegant structure of exquisitely orchestrated riffs and solos, elevating with an advanced strife of consecutively devilish harmonics that are quite the blood pumping occurrence - the demo-like drumming is also a smashingly incredible compartment. “Systematic Fear” is a hellish damnation of thrashing death mechanics, incorporating unprecedented tropes to the sub-genres with special flavours into the product. “Biotech Warfare” has pure extremity of pounding grinds and technical, distinguishable mayhem – it's a notable track with many surprising delicacies built in that will guarantee to get your fix of headbanging benefits. Overall concluding the record with “Tchernobyl 86” the longest song at 8:43, which fulfilled persistently with seemingly flamboyant supremacy – SATANIC admirably defend the faith; with a nice breath of fresh air, and detailed dominance.
