Most bands tend to lose direction and the original vision they had after three or so records. The Chasm, on the other hand, is one of those bands that has always stayed true to their sound, while at the same time writing music that's loaded with creative riffs, complex arrangements, and blistering speed. This is the band's seventh album, and in all honesty, I haven't stopped listening to it since I received it in the mail. Everything about this album is just pure metal - the riffs are pretty thrashy and quick with some pretty impressive finger work thrown throughout, not to mention some pretty bad ass solos. Neveyr heard The Chasm before? This is as good a place to start as any. The production is pretty clean without being polished, it sounds nice and big without anything being overpowering. Half the songs don't even have lyrics, but it doesn't even matter, the music says everything it needs too.
