review by Matthew "Newbreed99" Haumschild___
Chaostar is for anyone into dark music and into music that inflicts
say this without a shadow of a doubt that it doesnít matter which type
of metal you are into. Weather it would be death metal, black metal,
gothic, melodic death, doom, power, hardcore, old school, nu metal, or
whatever. The darkest of the dark have its origins. It isnít gospel.
It isnít old school rock and roll. Itís classical music. There is a
reason why we listen to the type of music we do and I will tell you what
is not a band. As a matter of fact, I really wouldnít know what to
call it. Itís basically one guy writing and arranging everything.
Itís classical music with operatic singing with a full-scale sounding
orchestra with it, playing the darkest possible pieces. I am unable to
pick apart song by song. This CD must be listened to from start to
finish. Because if you start from the middle of the CD, you lose
something and that something is momentum.
When I received this music, I started to
listen to it expect a full-fledged death metal or black metal band to
emerge. Everything started with a crash and horns for a split second and
it stops and it slowly creeps up on you. Then I realized that this is
not just any ordinary group. I listen further and further and I noticed
that music like this should be in dark mysterious movies. I divulge more
into Chaostar and just the emotions this CD brings out is so great.
There are so many dramatic passages that bring the listener to new
heights begging to hear more. I then realized by ďThe
Arab MerchantĒ (track 6) that this is definitely not for
anyone. Chaostar could only appeal to those who crave the dramatic in
their entertainment needs.
The listeners of
metal tend to listen to music that drives them. Metal is not for the
casual listener, our genre encourages us to think, to think about
complex melodies and to draw emotion from them. Rather it
would be anger, hatred, and feeling of being related to, depression,
lost, discovery, lust, wonder, and other emotions. Chaostar brings out
many of those emotions in their music.
is for anyone into dark music and into music that inflicts
I recommend buying this CD for the listener who craves the same things I
crave. If you listen to Gothic mostly, this will be a very nice edition
to your collection.
Friends, Buy this one. When I got it, I
went to wal-mart and I bought a box full of candles and started to study
with this playing in the background. I highly recommend it.
