Highlights: Everytrack is a highlight
As 2012 is still presenting a lot of excellent albums, I still consider the release of the EP album "Duality Chaos" for the one-man project "Deathronic" one of the best EP releases of the year. I've never imagined that only one musician has the ability to create a superior experienced and professional symphonic death/black metal record as a debut release, that's why I consider this band one hell of a surprise for all the fans of symphonic black and death metal.
The precious production value that has been produced and mixed at Studio Fredman is one of the first things that caught my attention here, because the perfect surrounding sound of the keyboards and the brutal tune of the guitars made this release rival and killer. Seth Siro Anton (of Septic Flesh) has put his fingerprint in this record with a real mystical and enigmatic artwork. This EP album contains four solid songs and three instrumental tracks, if you are ready to fill your ears with some professional brutality then you have to blow your speakers with these tracks.
The track "Bloody Lust" is a mixture between a lot of musical influences, the melodic death metal structure of the guitars and the electronic influences of the synths are mixed really well here to manufacture a real memorable piece. The oriental touches of the tracks "Kalila wa Dimna" and "Anno 1423" are highly recommended for all the fans who enjoy the sound of the oriental sound and instruments inside the metal music. I really loved the variety of the vocal technics in this record, the brutality is really clear in the tracks "Disharmonia Part II" and "Kalila wa Dimna" and the gentility is obvious in the clean vocals of the track "Anno 1423" (the clean vocals remind me a lot of the band Orphaned Land).
The atmosphere of the keyboards is powered by the orchestral choirs in the intro "Ephemere", and the sound of the bass is creating more foggy sound in the instrumental track "Disharmonia Part I", and in the end you have two serious golden instrumental tracks here. If you like to hear the result of colliding the orchestral scent of Dimmu Borgir with the consistence of Arch enemy, then you have to get a copy for this album immediately. In brief, this is one of the best extreme metal releases of the year, don't miss the born of this amazing project !
