http://terriblecertaintyzine.com/2012/12/03/kaos-kaos-among-us/ Kaos – Kaos Among Us DEC 3 Posted by Terrible Certainty Zine Terrible Certainty focuses its energies on the new stuff, but after my review of T.C.F.’s thrashtastic dark horse Where Madness Reigns,Malevolence Records sent me a fat stack of promos, so I figured the least I could do is give a couple a spin and spout off. So here’s a quick take onKaos Among Us, the second effort from California brawlers Kaos. It was spawned in 2003 and was reissued by Malevolence in 2012. Kaos are cousins to T.C.F. in that they deal out good old fashioned red-blooded crossover thrash. But they’re very different animals. T.C.F.offer up a classic crossover style in legacy of Nuclear Assault, S.O.D.,D.R.I. and the like. Kaos play a style rooted in 80’s thrash but executed with a pronounced contemporary voice, much like how Lamb of Godfused a modern fingerprint onto its thrash. Kaos sport a very lean, crisp sound, and I was honestly surprised to see two guitarists in the lineup as I could easily see this as a lean and mean three-piece. The good majority of Kaos Among Us is a midtempo, moshing hardcore stomp, with the occasional wrist-locked blitz for variety. Homage toSlayer and Death Angel are on display, but the vintage thrash ethos is largely undone by the shriek of the hardcore vocals. Exhibit A is the climax to “God as My Witness,” when the guitarists are busy laying down some seriously Slayer worshipping tight, circular riffs which are then then piled on by some vein-busting all-in piercing howls of the vocals. And I think that’s where listeners will divide into two camps. One rushing to the front of the stage, fists pumping, heads banging, and another that meanders to the back of the bar for another drink. In all, this is not my favorite flavor of crossover, but these guys do execute and Kaos Among Us is a respectable offering. From what I gather the band seems to have stretched its legs on its favorably received follow up, Pits of Existence. Stream “Paralyzed By Fear” at Myspace Kaos Malevolence Records
