There's a musical equivalent of those paintings, and judging from the key emotions I described earlier, you might have already guessed that I'm talking about black metal. A sick, raw and primitive form of the genre is currently haunting my stereo. In fact, it's been a while since I heard something as bleak, chaotic and eerie coming from Europe. It seems that that subgenre is now very alive in Mexico. At least, that's where Chaoswolf hails from.
This one man project, aided by some session musicians, comes up with some of the most vile and disordered black metal I've heard in a while. At first, with the intro, I didn't expect that. This song is loaded with keyboards, who don't seem to return, and reminds me a bit of a primitive version of Vinterriket. However, what happens next delves deep into the traditional blackened era where mid-tempo riffs, screeching vocals and sometimes blast beats make up the most part of the music.
Fans of early black metal and fans of the chaotic version of the genre, will find something utterly delicious on this album. It rarely gets bleaker than this and that's an accomplishment in this region of the musical underground. This is the musical variant of 'splatter art', preferably with the artist's own blood, exorcising all his demons in a frenzy of noise and despair.
