Review: Tim Skold – Chaos (Rock)

This review covers the industrial rock track Tim Skold – Chaos.

This track was released in 1996 on the album Skold. The track also made an appearance on the game Twisted Metal 4.

The track starts with some filtered white noise. In the forefront, there’s some synth effects as well. After that, the track features some background screaming from the vocals.

The track builds up with vocals and electric guitars all the way to the chorus. After that, the verse features sections with just the drumkits and vocals with a few subtle effects. There are electric guitars, but only in brief moments.

After that, there’s several elements that are heavily filtered. Admittedly, some of the vocals are a little hard to understand at this point. From there, there is some general guitar solo’s. This definitely adds some nice variety to the track overall.

Towards the end, there is an extended chorus before the track ends.

One thing this track has going for it is the very apparent grungy sound overall. The atmospheric effects this track works quite well.

The vocals are nicely done. There’s the odd moment where the lyrics are hard to listen to here and there, but they are otherwise pretty good.

Meanwhile, the lyrics have a sort of crazed suicidal theme going for them. Because of the theme’s in the lyrics, the track has a sort of Mad Max sound going for it. It works pretty well.

Overall, this track is a pretty solid one. If you want a track that has a few screws loose with a sort of post-apocalyptic sense to it, this track works quite well. The lyrics are nicely done, though the vocals can be hard to understand on some parts of the track. Still, it’s definitely a track worth listening to.

Score
7.5/10
