The style of the band unfortunately suffers from a severe lack of originality, being neither surprising nor impressing, although they can work also in a more subtle and lugubrious context. A God or an Other definitely knows how to elaborate and to vehemently display very tense and slow-pacing interludes, that normally anticipates the hazardous and horrific doom of excessively tempestuous harmonies, that descends over the listener like a definitive cataclysm, eager to destroy everything that comes on its way. Probably, these macabre, melancholic and gothic serenades are the greatest triumph of their music.
While you can feel a sharp, genuine and brutal ferocity embracing the consistency of a very aggressive, hostile and lancinating style, the most negative aspect of the band is related to the fact that it’s so brutally ferocious, and its melodies are so ostensibly rapid for the most part, that the sound invariably becomes too homogeneous. You inadvertently feel lost in the terrible storm of sameness compelled over its ferocious brutality, and eventually, becomes even incapable of differentiating one song from another. While there is genuine aggressiveness in their abrasive sound, there is little versatility and flexibility, which makes the album too predictable, and monotonous to a degree.
While Chaotic Symbiosis is not a bad album, it’s style is very limited. Definitely, the tempestuous malevolence is genuine, and, to a modest level, interesting. But its creativity is too petrified to a restrictive musical diagram, getting close to brutal death metal for the most part. Resenting itself from stylistic limitations and a severe lack of originality, this album is mostly recommended to passionate enthusiasts of extreme metal. Outside this particular zone, the album will hardly find any appreciation.
