This is pretty cool. Eternal Deformity are a progressive metal act from Poland, and the band definitely include a lot of different elements in their sound. I've seen them described as Avant-Garde, but I don't think their sound is as oddball as one you would except from that tag. The band fuse elements of death metal and even power metal into their style of progressive metal, and shades of acts such as Opeth and Edge of Sanity can be heard in their sound.

Having said that, it is still difficult to nail reference points for this band's sound, and splicing middle-period Opeth with later Edge of Sanity is definitely the best I can come up with. This is Eternal Deformity's fifth full-length release, and it certainly shows that the band are well experienced in their chosen craft. The ideas are good and fairly well realized on The Beauty of Chaos with good shifts in dynamics, and nice use of shifting between clean and aggressive vocals as well as clean and distorted guitars.

Overall an enjoyable album, with some genuinely awesome moments strewn throughout, the production is vibrant, and tracks such as "Lifeless" and "The Sun" are undoubtedly cool. Fans of progressive metal, and melodic death metal will certainly find something to love here.
