Marcel H. : I am quite a fan of Chaos Echoes’ debut EP and debut full-length. So, when ‘Mouvement’ arrived I couldn’t wait to give it a spin. The new albums clocks in at a mere 33 minutes but does harbour all the band’s facets. Opener ‘Embodied By Perfidious Curls In The Innervated Flux’ immediately hits home and showcases the characteristic Chaos Echoes sound and beats you into a pulp. ‘As An Embraceable Magma Leading The Subliminal’ which follows shifts down a couple of gears and showcases a more drone oriented sound with some industrial influences. The rest of album continues on this footing and is over before you know it. All songs flow seamlessly into each other and form an entity. The songs on their own don’t work all that well, then they seem to go nowhere and seem to lack substance. The songs get their meaning within the context of the entire album and then it works really well. The lack of vocals (at least I couldn’t find any) is something you don’t even notice due to how layered the music is. The music is rooted in death metal but drone can also be clearly discerned as well as industrial and doom and even some black. At times it even reminds me slightly of Blut Aus Nord at the time of ‘The Work Which Transforms God’. Once again Chaos Echoes delivers a very interesting album that doesn’t sound like anything they have done before. I wonder how the band will evolve.
