The Courts of Chaos

by Manilla Road

Helhest More on the obscure side than well known Crystal Logic, maintaining the same magic, but somewhat enriched with darker concept, like the taking of a new path. Manilla Road knows how to be constantly mutating without losing their personality and soul. That's what makes their releases so special, all musics having the epic tone, maybe some nostalgia or sadness, and paradoxically a very positive feeling all over. A great album with great heavy metal songs, some of them more thrash-y than others. Favorite track: From Beyond.

Max One of the things I like most about Manilla Road is how they don't confine themselves to one single style. This album ranges from slow and epic (like "Into the Courts of Chaos") to some kind of spaced-out thrash metal (like "From Beyond"). Still, everything is held together by the dark atmosphere.

The only track that I don't like is DOA, although it fits the mood. Favorite track: Into the Courts of Chaos.

Release Date: June 19, 2012
During this time period for Manilla Road, this is their last album to really have any 80's Thrash influence. This album had some atmospheric keyboards and thrash elements to it. It's one of their more unique sounding albums, but definitely a progression from their "Out Of The Abyss" album which was basically a full blown off beat Slayer styled Thrash album. This album features their best Epic Metal song "The Book Of Skelos"; it's an incredible beast of a song with a lot of surprises and direction you might not see coming.
