Chosen are a band from Ireland that plays a very technical and progressive form of death/groove metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 album "Resolution".
Drums range from slow to mid paced to fast playing with some blast beats being utilized at times , while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them, as for the synths which are only used briefly they bring a very dark and atmospheric sound to t he recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine death and groove metal with technical and progressive metal, while the lead guitars are very melodic and technical sounding death metal guitar solos and leads, as for t he acoustic guitars when t hey are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to add more progressive touches to the music.
Vocals range from deep death/groove metal growls, high pitched screams and clean singing as well as a brief spoken word part, while the lyrics cover philosophical and metaphysical themes, as for t he production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for being a self released recording with some of t he songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Chosen are a very great sounding hybrid of progressive, technical, death and groove metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should c heck out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Engines Of Belief" "Mental Clarity" "Instinct" and "Metaphysical Contradiction". RECOMMENDED BUY.
