Throne of Chaos

Rated 3.2/5 (64%) (5 Votes)

Chileans strike back once again... Forhell is a two-man band that plays a mix of Black and Thrash Metal in the vein of Desaster, Samael and Deströyer 666, but with a more melodic touch. In fact, they sound a bit better than just "okay-ish" on their debut album, titled Throne of Chaos. CDM 666 on vocals and drums has a good and raspy vocal approach, and his band mate, Hector Paris, who handles guitar and bass, knows what is needed to rip the tongue out of the mouth of Jesus the Nazarene, through his sharp use of both four- and six-string axes.

Forhell's Black/Thrash is pleasingly varied and even partly progressive. "Hyberborea" is a good example of how they are able to create sort of a slowly crawling, ominous atmosphere around a song. The same is true for "Throne of Chaos", which at least distantly, reminds me a bit of the Ceremony of Opposites times of Samael, but with a stronger progressive vibe.

Throne of Chaos is a pretty solid album from this Chilean duo, though without any groundbreaking element.
