It's nice to hear something completely different once and a while. The unique classic rock and prog influences really make for a re-listenable album. So re-listenable, Bandcamp told me to pay up...50/50 on my 2018 year end list.
Favorite track: Void Of Words.
After some silent months that have went over to silent years, German Metallers CHAPEL OF DISEASE now present their highly anticipated new album “...And As We Have Seen The Storm, We Have Embraced The Eye”!
Starting in 2008 as a band dwelling in the raw death metal sounds from the late 80s, CHAPEL OF DISEASE released their debut “Summoning Black Gods” in 2012. Three years later it would soon become obvious that strictly following a certain genre would eventually lose its attraction to the band. With their 2015 full-length “The Mysterious Ways Of Repetitive Art” the band would find their way of mixing up sounds to create something unique.
With “...And As We Have Seen The Storm, We Have Embraced The Eye” CHAPEL OF DISEASE follow that path, yet disregarding any genre specific expectations even more and putting all the effort in simply making diversified, enthralling heavy music. The outcome is a record somewhere between the atmosphere of black and death metal, including riffing from the golden days of the 70s and soundscapes of the synthie 80s.

Why do people like this music? Because they hate how it carries them away? How it transfers sound into inner peace? How it is right on, as a combination of all right sounds and tempo; like a violent peace that it is?
