Kaos Vortex are a German band who hit our radar screen when we learned in 2013 that Fredrik Huldtgren from the fantastic Swedish band Canopy had become their new frontman. The band have recorded a debut album named Seeds of Decay that’s set for a May 22 release on CD and digitally by Bret Hard Records. Not long ago we featured a killer single from the album named “Terrorizer”, and now we bring you the premiere of an official video for another track: “Tomb of the Undying“.
It’s becoming increasingly apparent that Kaos Vortex can be relied upon to deliver the kind of death metal that grabs you by the neck and shakes you all the way down to the soles of your feet. “Tomb of the Undying” begins hammering and howling right from the start, but it moves in different directions before reaching its finale. It includes jolting grooves, rapidly jabbing riffs, and slithering, serpentine lead guitar work that shrouds the punishing attack in a thoroughly morbid and sinister atmosphere. As expected, Fredrik Huldtgren’s deep growls and harrowing howls are beastly and voracious.
The video is well put-together, featuring scenes of the band performing while a scholar of the occult pores over his grimoire in the course of what appears to be a summoning. And judging by what happens at the video’s end, we haven’t yet reached the end of this story…
Check out the video below, and if you happened to miss our feature on “Terrorizer”, it’s a hell of a song, too, and we’re including a stream of it below the video. To pre-order the album, visit Bandcamp via the link below.
