ChaosWolf area band from Mexico that plays a very raw and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Templo e Palabras Muertas" which was released as a joint effort between Symbol Of Domination Productions and Caligo Arcanum Productions.
A very dark and epic keyboard sound starts off the album while also returning briefly on later tracks and a few seconds later grim black metal screams make their presence known on the recording and they also have a very depressive tone to them at times and after the intro the music starts going into more of a heavy and melodic musical direction.
Most of the music is very heavily rooted in a raw and depressive style of black metal and clean singing can be heard at times and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats are utilized and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads remain true to an old school style of black metal while also using melodies at times and a couple of the tracks are long and epic in length and there is also a few seconds of clean playing being utilized at times and one track also brings in a brief use of spoken word sample.
ChaosWolf plays a style of black metal that is very raw and old school sounding while also mixing in depressive elements at times and a a couple of ambient instrumental tracks to make their music stand out a bit bit, the production is very raw and heavy sounding while the lyrics are written in Spanish and cover Lycanthropy, Philosophy, Chaos and Dischord themes.
In my opinion ChaosWolf are a very great sounding raw and depressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "La Escision De Ouroboros" "Tanatema" "El Discurrir De Un Cancer Del Ser" and "The End Of Black Metal Paradise". 8 out of 10.
