THE NEW AGE OF CHAOS
Embarking on its third album of carnage, death metal mongers Vile once again brandish its brand of technically sound brutality with THE NEW AGE OF CHAOS. Changing it up by blending slower, churning riffs found at the end of “Deafening Silence” with the blast-beated bruising of “Suicide Warfare”, Vile’s array of styles and musical prowess stands out the most here. Where other bands rely on blowing you away with blinding speed, Vile instead slides in some neat black metal nuances that complement its Floridian death metal and European extreme metal sides and adds another interesting twist to Vile’s already vast arsenal of mayhem. If you dig Nile and Morbid Angel’s techniques and Cannibal Corpse’s gore, you’ll flip over this one.
