Chaos Creation is one of the gutsiest metal bands to originate from my long-standing hometown of Lappeenranta, Finland. Their first demo from 2005 contains unashamed thrash metal done in the filthy spirit of the Bay Area, with some speedier and traditional elements thrown in.

After the airline-esque opening invitation, Primal Uprising cranks it up with pure 80s-riffery and quick thrash beats to keep that pit running. Vocalist Triple A’s bark isn’t quite what you would expect off the bat, though. His hoarse shout isn’t of the traditional thrash variety a lá Araya or Baloff, but more akin to punk or hardcore. The Finnish metal legend Stone had quite similar singing on their records. Word has it this was the singers first attempt at aggressive singing of any kind so the lack of experience shows. None the less, the don’t-give-a-F -attitude is definitely there and it more than appropriately suits the mood.

Arms Of Oblivion goes much more technical from the meat-and-potatoes opener and injects the spirit of speed metal into the mix. The drumming of Arto Vesander is impressive indeed as it pushes the guitars to pulverize us with more and more riffs. D.F.A. (an abbreviation in line with the disc’s title) goes back to the basic thrash with gang shouts and a killer, rocking guitar solo courtesy of Janne Sorsa of Dead Revolution.

Mindfuck is probably the most versatile song on the demo. Starting off with slow chords, it starts to build up with heavy metal riffing not that far from Judas Priest. The gang choruses again take it to California with style. In the end the singers longer shouts get quite flattened, another sign of much needed practise.

The production is pretty good for a debut demo, but at the same time lo-fi enough that even the harshest of raw-atmosphere -purists shouldn’t be left feeling cold and slicked up. Chaos Creation is a band that showed a lot of potential and catchiness on their first demo, and things would only improve with subsequent releases.
