Album Review: Chaos Magic- Emerge

The production on Emerge is solid, but nothing extraordinary. The bass is present in the mix, but not heavily. Furthermore Nix’s vocals are not lost in the mix, giving the songs a perfect balance between vocals and instruments. Emerge has more simple guitar riffs and percussion, and less emphasis on symphonic samples. However, the keyboards and acoustic guitars on songs like “Victims Of Our Heaven” provide a nice contrast to the heavier tracks on the album.

Emerge is a good record that will satisfy fans of bands like Xandria and Delain. While Chaos Magic is not the most musically progressive band in this sub-genre, it offers enough musical variety that keeps the album interesting but cohesive. The band can only go up from here.
