Nervochaos are a band from Brazil that plays a mixture of black metal, doom, death, thrash and hardcore punk and this is a review of their 2014 album "The Art Of Vengeance" which will be released in December by Greyhaze Records.
A very old school thrash metal sound starts off the album along with some death metal growls before speeding up and adding in hardcore punk style shouts and the music sticks mostly to a mid 80's to early 90's style of extreme metal along with a great amount of blast beats and the raw energy of grindcore and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them..
You can tell the band is heavily influenced by the Brazilian thrash, death and black metal bands of the 80's in the way they structure there songs and a lot of their fast riffing and screams bring in an old school black metal feeling while the thrash and death metal elements are still a very strong part of the bands musical style and at time s they also add in small amounts of melody to their aggressive sound.
When the music slows down the album starts showing more of an early 90's doom/death metal feeling and when solos and leads are utilized they bring in a decent amount of melody but remain true to an old school style of death metal, one some of the later tracks spoken word parts can be heard at times.
Nervochaos go back to the mid 80's and early 90's styles of death, thrash, black and doom metal and combine them to create a sound of their own along with the energy of grindcore and punk, the production sounds very old school yet professional at the same times while the lyrics cover Satanism, Anti Christian, Dark and Violent themes.
In my opinion Nervochaos are a very great sounding mixture of death, thrash, black metal, doom, grind and punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Harvest" "The Devil's Work" "Blood Ritual" and "The Legacy Is Pain". 8 out of 10.
