Order Of Chaos are a band from Australia that plays a mixture of death metal and hardcore punk and this is a review of their 2014 album "Deadweight Undertow" which was released by Third Verse Records.
A very dark, melodic and distorted sound starts off the album before getting a little bit heavier along with some aggressive vocals a few seconds later which bring in elements as crustcore which sets up the pace for death metal growls and melodies to be added into the bands musical style along with some elements of old school hardcore.
At times some of the guitar riffing has a melodic death metal feeling to them at times along with a touch of early 90's style thrash and at times you can hear a touch of the mid 90's metalcore sound in certain sections of the recording and after awhile the music starts to speed up a bit at times and starts to incorporate a small amount of blast beats and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and a couple of the later tracks also shows the band bringing in a small amount of guitar solos and leads, towards the end the band also brings in a cover of Black Flag's "My War".
Order of Chaos takes the death metal elements of their past releases and mixes it with 90's hardcore and the raw energy of punk rock and while this is not I style i listen to regularly I still fell the band is very good at what t hey do, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Order Of Chaos are a very decent sounding mixture of death metal, hardcore and punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMEND TRACKS INCLUDE "No Passion To The Grind" "Hand Over Fist" "Losing Limbs" and "My War". 7/5 out of 10.
