The Chills

Rattlehead2079 Creepy atmosphere, killer vocals and old-school riffing, really make this album stand out. Really ahead of the usual OSDM worship, even before their prog/tech albums. Favorite track: The Eye of Madness.

superdave2112 In contrast to their later works this is much rawer and less complex. But yet melancholic, eerie, beautiful. A first glimpse at the flesh and the power it holds.

Choco Latte Horrendous unfortunately get lumped into the copycat category. That's unfair. 'The Chills' set new standards for integrity, respect, and a sense of enjoyment for playing death metal. Favorite track: Fatal Dreams.

Максим Назарян The saturated crunch of the HM-2 with some memorable melodies thrown in. Kind of like a slightly off-kilter mid-career Dismember. Supremely righteous. Favorite track: Fatal Dreams.

Horrendous' 2010 demo titled "Sweet Blasphemies" was merely a brief showcasing of this band's tremendous potential. In addition to the CD-r version of the demo, two separate 200 copy pro tape pressings were made and sold; first via a cooperation with Dark Descent and Skeleton Plague then later through Dark Descent Records.

Horrendous' debut full-length titled "The Chills" is a full-on assault of the aural senses. Horrendous mixes HM-2 sound with unique melody and solos creating memorable and terrific songwriting . This is no "retro" band but a band that has clearly created a nine-song death metal masterpiece ending with the epic nine-minute closer "The Eye of Madness."

Do not mistake this band for a clone of Entombed, Autopsy or Incantation. Doing this would be a great disservice to a masterful album and you would obviously miss out on what will be one of 2012's best death metal albums, hands down.
