Chaos 8 – One Last Kiss (E.P.)
(S/R – 2021)
Industrial Gothic Rock that's like Depeche Mode & Gary Numan gone Fear Factory & Ministry all in one.
They are made up of Paul (Guitarist/Songwriter) & Oz (Bassist) who both hail from Durham with the other half of the crop being Beki (Vocalist) & Steve (Drummer/Sampler) soaring in from Sunderland.
It's dark and deep riffed with a high pitched vocal soaring over the top of it all. Very much a similar style and theme running throughout the E.P. from 'I Am Alive' with its Aboriginal long intro that hurtles into gothic electronica and abrasive guitar-work right to the end of the sinister fast-moving 'Take Your Breathe Away' that'd be perfect in an up-to-date sci-fi Movie of some nature.
Heavy 'n' brutal orchestral-like vibes that are both listenable and pleasurable.
