Duality Chaos
Style: Symphonic black death metal
Release date: 28 January, 2013
Playing time: 25:13

Deathronic is s Parisian one man band created by Amine Andalous in 2010. All music and lyrics are written & performed by Amine. I have to admit that with the modern production methods and the mixing & mastering by Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd it all sounds well.

The music can be described as symphonic black metal. I hear a lot of similarities with the band Septic Flesh, and elements of Dimmu Borgir aren't far away either. Besides that Amine experiments with parts of electronic music in the songs, like for example in "Bloodlust". Next song "Kalila Wa Dimna" opens with oriental influences, which could have been on an Orphaned Land or Myrath album too. The singing style of Amine is in Dimmu Borgir style and is very common for the genre. The main concept behind "Duality Chaos" is human violence, not a concept we wouldn't expect on a metal album and for me having no lyrics, not interesting. Least interesting track for me is "Anno 1423", which is a track that has HIM and Type O Negative kind of influences. Too modern for me.

When we skip the intros or short instrumental songs, there are only 4 tracks on this EP. No idea what the price will be for this album, but if you can download the songs separately, I would advice you to only download the tracks 2, 3, 5 and 6.
