pretty surprising album is the third longplayer presented by Vile.
American Death metal has always been their style, and this has not
changed, but this time I think, the band has found the way to an
original and individual way of interpretation.
precise and brutal work, and with some blast less as in the past here
and there, Vile have found a very “clean” sound, where every
instrument has its right place. Transparent yet
powerful, ass kicking and brutal, this record makes a very good
impression. Specially the guitar sound is
in my eyes almost a little bit revolutionary, as I had the impression,
that first time in brutal Death Metal history the gain button of the
amps was not open at its maximum during the recording sessions.
songs are, as said, generally a little more in the midtempo regions as
in the past. Well timed breaks and guitar solos full of virtuality
characterise also this cd and the lots of doublebass passages hammer
finally every song violently in the listeners head.
in my eyes one of the few American Death metal bands that are able to
write catchy songs. The obvious technical and
compository talent of these guys and the enduring touring has make the
band grow, so that with “New age of Chaos” Vile can be counted to
one of the best bands in this genre.
is an album where I didn't find any special weakness except from the
short duration of itself. I recommend to everyone
is interested in captivating brutality. Some modern influences (
like for example the last riff in "Sentenced
to live", that reminds me in a certain way of Korn) give
the whole a little special touch and avoids eventually upcoming
boringness. As I don’t had the luck to see them one stage yet, I
really wonder how Vile sounds in live situation, and hope to have this
luck in the coming months.
