Chaos Invocation - Reaping Season, Bloodshed Beyond (2018)


Hailing from Germany, today we have Satanic Black Metal outfit Chaos Invocation and their terrifying third full-length release “Reaping Season, Blodshed Beyond”. Unleashing a foul sound, this band delivers eleven tracks of punishing Black Metal that is ravaging and relentless. With some influences of bands like Marduk, Watain and Weapon, this band has a tight sound that will certainly satisfy even the most kvlt BM people.

After the traditional atmospheric intro, the band goes full steam with the incisive riffing of “Calling from Dudail”. Perfectly blending chaotic riffing with superbly tight drumming, the band crafts very unique music that has that certain old-school vibe, but with a superb production behind it, as we can instantly notice in pieces like “To Fathom The Blooodmist” and along the savage tempo changes of “Obsession Is Always the Answer”.

Never abusing the traditional staples of the genre, the band expands their sound with clean vocals and levels of musicality that not many outfits deliver, “The Search of Keys and Geats” is a perfect example of this. Our personal favorite is the bizarre “Luciferian Terror Chorale”, and its uniquely chaotic vibe. Weaving back and forth between intense drum patterns and highly moody guitar work.

Closing with “Ajna Assassins Absolute”, the band leaves on a high note with a terrifying song that will embed itself in your psyche. As a whole, “Reaping Season, Bloodshed Beyond” is a crushing release filled with crafty instrumentation and well written songs. If you like Black Metal that is both to the point and yet layered enough to keep it interesting, then definitely give Chaos Invocation a chance.
