From The Abyss - Chaos Supremacy - Reviewed By Neckbreaker ! Check it out here at this link: https://neckbreaker.de/reviews/cd-reviews/12579-from-the-abyss-chaos-supremacy
When you hear the words Cuba and music, you probably think first of all of Buena Vista Social Club, but also of Salsa, Son and some others. Rather rarely, however, one will think of metal. Cuba has a metal scene, although it is not comparable to most other countries. But I am still annoyed that five years ago in Cuba I did not manage to visit the metal club in Havana. I would have liked to have seen.
Somehow, the harder, darker styles also seem to prevail in Cuban metal. There are several black metal bands, FROM THE ABYSS play Death Metal – I've never heard of a Cuban power metal band. Which, of course, does not mean that they do not exist. But back to FROM THE ABYSS: The band from Havana was founded in 2015 and is now releasing their second album "Chaos Supremacy". Not a bad performance in a country where instruments are often unaffordable and studio stays are just as priceless.
And for that this album has become a decent board. The "Chaos Supremacy" drags itself away in a mid-tempo and is often reminiscent of bands like MORBID ANGEL or BLOODBATH. The band shows that the comparison with the latter is no coincidence with the last song of the album, the BLOODBATH cover "Mock The Cross", in which the band sounds really angry. Unfortunately, you can't give the song a note of your own.
Otherwise, this is fine death, but for me personally in the long run a little too monotonous and boring. The only exception is in the middle of the album: "Grim Dawn" attracts the tempo and develops into an absolute earworm to which one simply MUST be bang. For me, clearly the best song of the album. It's a pity that the whole album isn't so varied.
But if you are on mucke of the brand MORBID ANGEL/BLOODBATH, you should enjoy this album much more than me. Because purely objectively it has become a pretty good album. And for such slightly exotic metal I am always to have. - Anne - Neckbreaker
