Satanic
Architect of Chaos
Company: Independent
Release: 2016
Genre: Death
Reviewer: Greg Watson
Published: 8/16/2017

Death thrash metal that gives a big nod to the old school
COMMENTS:
'Architecture of Chaos' has that cool, old school nostalgic feel that is easy to get into. But at other times, the old school feel is a bit tedious and predictable. The production also hurts the album a little as it's rather muffled and dull, making things feel a little smothered at times. That being said though, Satanic knows how to craft some solid, old school thrash infused with death metal elements. Speedy little riffs are emboldened by some pretty catchy hooks and solid drum and bass lines. A lack of guitar solos was a little head scratching but despite that absence, the album is still pretty decent from beginning to end.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
