Venezuela's hellish blackened Death Metal horde Sectasys surely knows how to play fast... I mean, fuckin' fast! As the album title, Brotherhood of Chaos, politely hints, a chaotic mixture of Black and Death Metal is the name of their rally on their debut album.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with playing your stuff as fast as you can because sometimes it's just a part of the game when trying to make an impression on people, but how about also giving it some different nuances and variations just to avoid the swallowing and suffocating effect that one may feel when things are a bit over the top. These painted Venezuelan heroes give you an overdose of fast-paced extreme Metal in no time, which is kind of sad because I sense a true spark of sheer potential in them and their efforts to become a true force in the vast fields of extreme Metal. It's vocalist Ignacio "UrukHai" Fernandez who saves the album. He sounds much like Rick Jacobs of Nasferatu (R.I.P.) and Tom May of Mass Psychosis with his absolutely deranged and sick vocal delivery. Even if it may sound a bit harsh, he's actually the best part of the whole record, keeping the band's ship just above the surface.
Sectasys should consider cutting off some of their faster tempos and replacing them by more mid-paced and slower tempos in order to give more depth and a needed balance for their otherwise quite pleasing Black/Death Metal gospels on their future releases.
