Chaos Creation - Homicidal Party Time review
|Homicidal Party Time
02. Shining Wizard
04. Corpsepaint Cavalry
Chaos Creation is a self-proclaimed "hard-assed, brain-scrambling moshpatrol" thrash metal band from Lappeenranta in Finland, and this "Homicidal Party Time" is the bands third demo.
As soon as you see the cover of the demo and read the descriptions of the band members ("riffmonster Tony, low-end brutalizer Julle, odd sarcasm-fuelled screwball Aleski and skinmaster Arto") you can deduce that these aren't the most serious guys around and they bring this scene of humor out in their music.
The demo contains three songs and one two-minute interlude-type filler track. The first two tracks "Obsessive/Submissive" and "Shining Wizard" are good solid pieces of metal that show off good, catchy guitar riffs and skills and also fast, enjoyable drumming. The vocals didn't quite seem to fit perfectly though, at some parts it sounded like being preached at by an Irish guy, but at other points they bring in a somewhat punkish element to the band and also the sarcasm in the voice does bring out the funnier side better.
The third track is a slow two-minute instrumental that seemingly has no point in being there and fails to capture my imagination, but the fourth track "Corpsepaint Cavalry" is by far the best track on the demo. The song appears to be poking fun at all the "true, grim and necro" black metallers, and not that I don't like black metal because I do, but the song had my laughing with its lyrics with lines such as "Embrace the cold, avoid the sun 'cause the march of the penguins has begun" and "Quality sounds that's what we fear, horrid production makes atmosphere"
Not only the lyrics though, but the song also has by far the best guitar and drums making it very easy to bang your head to!
All-in-all it is a breath of fresh air to hear a band like this taking a less serious approach and the last track especially shows they have the skill and potential to go further ahead in their musical careers.
You can also hear two tracks from this demo and tracks from their past two demos in the music section of their official website here.
