Finally after delving nine years into perfecting possibly the darkest essence of black metal treachery, Greek blackened dissenters ENSHADOWED engulfs and abolishes everything that is holy and orthodox with "Magic Chaos Psychedelia"! Ceremoniously apocalyptic encompassing its aura, "Magic Chaos Psychedelia" is an abyss of religious anti-establishment with total hateful and nihilistic intent. Meticulously recorded, mixed and mastered at Devasoundz Studio by SEPTICFLESH skinsman Fotis Bernado and ENSHADOWED, together with the album cover artwork weaved by Greek artist Rea Pediaditaki, including additional hand-made paintings by Miguel Angel Castro Salinas. The amalgamation of Magic and Chaos are now together as One, even more foreboding than ever imagined.
To put it to rest - yes, ENSHADOWED shares some similarities with Dark Fortress in both composition and quality. However, I'm not going to complain which came first or which is the ultimate in black metal for this - both have their merits and have only proved to be worthy of listening. Although, I can state that when it comes to technical work - ENSHADOWED gains my respect for more variety and a little less repetition. I feel like Magic Chaos Psychedelia is a very structured release calling back to older influences, staying true to black metal of old, while adding flair all on its own. Perhaps it is front man Serpant's vocals, both harsh and at times calling on a deep primal groan which reminds me greatly of a more disturbed version Celtic Frost's Tom Warrior, to put it simply - Serpant never disappoints. - Destructive Music5/5
