Of Chaos starts in contained, nearly relaxed style, but
the Intro (White Architect) seems to have the one and only
effect to boost the heaviness of the following track Cortex
Deformation. The intense work on the drums and the density
in sound is typical first-class for a Polish band, but is there
also a specific trademark for TRAUMA? I think that there
are some unusual guitar solos and sounds, which may carry the
song’s mood apart from weird rhythmic structures.
In most cases, the speed is enormously and breath-taking, but
I just get surprised if apocalyptic sounds or breaks get into
operation like the tribal-like intermezzo during the tune A
Dying World. The intensity of this record would be tiresome
without expressive contrasting elements like the hardly to notice
guitar work in the background or the conjuring vocals during the
track War Machine. The devil (or the zest) lays hidden,
obvious direct hits like on the predecessor Neurotic Mass
are missing at first contact.
I really like the oriental touch in the beginning of The Truth
Murder or the short spoken word’s part, ere the dominating
drum machine Arkadiusz Sinica takes the lead again. In addition,
the relaxed, more direct and epic build-up of the concluding piece
Destruction Of The Demented World shows up as brownie point
because of its difference.
set their focus on the overall impression of their music. This
effect is boosted by some latent details, which got one big advantage,
namely the long-term-effect. Archetype Of Chaos
does not unfold ist zest from the beginning on, but it offers
a lot of detailed compositions holding some surprising turns.
