Corpsia is a trio from Londrina, Brazil, founded in 2012. Being fans of old school thrash metal bands like Slayer, Metallica and Motorhead, they started writing their own songs. Their plan was to recreate a modern day version of the genre and they succeeded, that's for sure. The four tracks, actually three tracks and an intro, breathe the 'loud and proud' atmosphere of the eighties and nineties and I'm quite stunned by the result.
After the bizarre intro the e.p. opens with 'Warfield', a brutal mid-tempo metal track with a tremendous 'hey - hey - hey' atmosphere. I'll explain: I can clearly imagine an audience going berzerk, raising their fists and shouting 'hey' whenever the snare drum hits. The song drives on very powerful riffs and a fantastic voice, a bit rough but perfect for this kind of music.
'Hail' raises the tempo, even to the point where the drums have an industrial feel, as if Anthrax meets Ministry in Machine Head's rehearsal room. Titletrack 'Order From Chaos' thrives on the same elements while even raising the level of intensity. This is also the songs with the most shifts in tempo, proving the excellent musical craftsmanship on this trio.
So if you're into thrash and death metal, this clearly is your thing and I can only recommend checking it out. These are well trained thrashers, capable of setting any venue on fire. I hope to hear and see more of this brilliant metal soon. This will start a lot of moshpits and trigger tons of stagedivers.
