Kaosophia are a band from Ukraine that plays an occult form of black metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "The Origins Of Extinction" which was released by Bloodred Distribution.
War and marching sounds start off the album along with some heavy riffs and melodic guitar leads which also dominate throughout the recording and a few seconds later which leads up to a fast and raw black metal direction that uses blast beats and grim high pitched black metal screams and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Deep death metal growls can be heard in certain sections of the recording and the songs also bring in a bit of the melodic Swedish satanic black metal sound at times while the vocals have a different style and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and they also stick to a very raw, heavy, dark and melodic musical direction from beginnign to end of the recording.
Kaosophia plays a style of raw and melodic occult black metal that is very heavily influenced by the Swedish bands that go more into the dark side but with a more grim approach to vocals, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover Satanism, Chaos, Apocalyptic Visions, and Mind Delusions.
In my opinion Kaosophia are a very great sounding melodic occult black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "March Of The Antichrist Soldiers" "Rituale Romanum" "Dance With the Dead Stars" and "Requiem For Deceased Faith". 8 out of 10.
