Album Notes
Since the release of 2010’s “The Pits of Existence” and the preceding changes within the band, Jason Darnell (vocals) and Stacey Murray (guitars) bring into the ranks guitarist Steve Brumbaugh (former Skeptism, Starch), newcomer Jesse Bellino on drums and Chad Murphy (former The Venting Machine) on bass to open the next chapter of KAOS.

The new lineup spent much of late 2010 into 2011 making Bay Area and Central Valley appearances in support of their previous Independently released album “The Pits of Existence”. A time well spent for the new members coming into form.

KAOS went back into writing mode for their forthcoming release in July 2011 with Stacey Murray tackling the engineering duties once again. The band recorded four new pummeling tunes, “United We Kill”, “Internal Bleeding”, “Alive to Die” and “Blood Red Eyes”. Only one thing could top this off for the band and that is to end this EP with a song by one of their greatest influences, “Kill on Command” off of the Eternal Nightmare album by Bay Area Thrash legends, Vio-Lence.

And so it is written, the new E.P. titled “Validated in Blood” a truly fitting moniker for a band that has been forever entrenched in the Bay Area Metal scene. A band that has consistently found a way to re-invent itself and continues to unleash unrelenting metal on their own terms. This is the future of KAOS and Bay Area Metal to the core.

Malevolence Records – 2012 European Tour Sampler (2012) Various Artists

Posted April 1st, 2012 by Dark Emperor

Album Reviews
Symphonic Metal
Thrash Metal

In an action packed sampler, today we have Malevolence Records “2012 European Tour Sampler” featuring 4 different bands and two tracks each, a new one and an older one. With a nice spread of different musical genres (Thrash Metal and Melodic Death/Black Metal) this release is quite entertaining and shows promises for the upcoming releases of bands like KAOS and Septic Christ.

Tracks one and five belong the American Thrash Metal act KAOS. Their brand of high-octane Thrash Metal was greatly received with their last release titled “Pits of Existence” from which “Let God Sort Them Out” comes from. The new track “Infernal Bleeding” continues where the band left off and delivers super guitar work and excellent drumming. The vocals are pretty standards and aggressive enough to keep fans of ‘more brutal’ genres interested. This track has a nice melodic edge to it and we can only hope their upcoming release “Validated in Blood” is as good as this song.

Absentia from Spain provides us with songs two and six. We have earlier this year reviewed their latest release “Our Bleeding Sun” and this is where their first track comes from. With their perfect blend of Melodic Death/Black Metal, this band’s music is top notch. The track we haven’t heard from their “Heaven Still Burns” release from 2009 shows how the band’s sound has greatly matured since then, but makes up for a very engaging Melodic piece that has an old-school vibe.

Pummeling through two excellent Thrash Metal tracks, Septic Christ delivers some of the best songs in this sample with “Yearning for Salvation” and “Wake Up”. This Germany Thrash has a very well-defined 80’s bay area sound as their riffing and song structures clearly show. The catchiness of “Yearning for Salvation” is very effective and made us write down the band’s name to look for their upcoming album in the future. “Wake Up” delivers a more straight-forward approach with high similarities to bands like Kreator and Death Angel, but with a little bit less punch than their first song.

The last two tracks belong to T.C.F, a band from the Netherlands that plays a hybrid of Thrash Metal with some Hardcore elements. Their two tracks are the shortest ones of this release and quite frankly not to our full liking. “An Eye For an Eye” has that punk-ish edge that some people might enjoy, but for us is just not engaging enough. The even shorter “Core 88” has more meat on the guitar work, and sounds bit more like old-school Thrash metal, making it out of their two songs our ‘favorite’ one.

As this sampler indicates, the band’s playing at Metal Over Oostrozebeke festival on July 7th, 2012 will provide a great show due to their musical abilities. This sampler also gives you a nice insight into 4 bands that are making some nice music and should be heard. If you are a fan of Thrash Metal, this release should be of your interest since more than half of the tracks are pretty good for this genre standards.

A.A.V.V. - Malevolence Records - Metal Over Oostrozebeke

InformazioniGruppi: VariTitolo: Metal Over Oostrozebeke: Anno: 2012: Provenienza U.S.A. / Germany / SpagnaEtichetta: Malevolence RecordsContatti: malevolence-records.usAutore: MourningTracklist. 1.

The Malevolence Records is a small label that is step by step creandosi the roster, with this release-sampler, which contains eight pieces, two for each team within your reality, presents a view of the European tour that will involve.The tracklist reveals that the names are almost all known to listen to those who follow Aristocracy from the beginning, opening with "Internal Bleeding" thrash violently and adorned with traits "core" of the old school veterans KAOS. The trace output as a single and forerunner of the new ep "Validated In Blood" confirms the effectiveness of the proposal on the combo, heavy and massive, it is added to "Let God Sort Them Out" extracted from the preceding chapter, the full-length "The Pits Of Existence". Second in order of appearance is the sound of black / symphonic Spaniards Absentia, first with "If Only I" belongs to the latest release, "Our Bleeding Sun", also included in our database, and subsequently around the longest, "A Kiss From Hellheaven "dating back to the debut of "Heaven Still Burns". The difference between the two is clear, with the latter very immature especially from the point of view of production.We return to thrash with the Teutonic Septic Christ of "Yearning For Salvation", the sound begins softly and caressingly driven by a single melodic trickery, the departure rate is around the corner and the roots of the sound-Exodus Anthrax They come out disruptive. The piece is part of the new album "Guilty As We Were Born" and "Wake Up" is one of the tow tracks from the first album "Infected Existence" to which the undersigned is particularly fond of because it was one of the first online reviews submitted by the Aristocracy, 2009. Rounding out the games T.C.F. (Thrash Core Fanatics), which is clearly explanatory monicker on the choices of sound and the direction taken by the formation of the songwriting, the Dutch arrived ear with "An Eye For An Eye" extrapolated from "Where Madness Reigns", the debut of 2011, and "Core'88" ep including the 2009 "Speed Or Bleed". Nothing new but definitely geared to meet the demand of those living pleasantly "trapped" in the eighties. "Over Oostrozebeke Metal" is a showcase of what the show will reserve its Belgian participants and this release is ultimately just a taste, an invitation to try, if not already knew, the bands will alternate on that stage . Around so the ball to you dear readers, and perhaps you become part of your audience
