Featured debut



Classic revisited

Magus plays a very violent doom/death with a lot of sudden outbursts of death/grind. The band is filthy, grim and otherwise very close linked to oldschoo...

I Chaos : Spirit Of Faceless Time




Vaporous mists full of dark echoes, a voice that rolls like a thunderous storm in the distance, ice-cold atmosphere, cloudy horizon, the top of a mountain...

I Chaos has definitely a mineral nature: water, stone, moss, fog and gentle breeze, a primeval setting. To get all the sap of it, you'd almost have to listen to this debut album by dawn, lying back on the short grass of the Andean highlands where land and sky touch; the mind gets lost in the great cottony masses that move slowly in the fresh air. There is the place this music deserves, where time has slowed down, where even civilization stands aside.

I won't have to take a plane to this destination, the CD of I Chaos in the pocket, to go test its cathartic effects on the top of one of these inaccessible mountains; and Iíd say thatís a good thing because it's already cold enough down in the valleys to freeze your balls off. No, happily for me,it just needs a good Ambient Doom album to travel far away, its evocative power easily opens the mind to this kind of exotic trip.

And I Chaos' music definitley has a very evocative power. It invokes these kinds of impressions for me, while someone else will feel something different. Itís the strength of the genre: it becomes a vehicle for the imagination. The Holy Formula, now on sale in every supermarket of Doom, is this: ethereal keyboards, voices from beyond the grave, comatose drumming and buzzing guitars. That's all; itís next to nothing and still, it becomes awesome when the balance is correctly achieved. Here it is, absolutely.
