Deviser - Transmission to Chaos

Genre: Atmospheric Death/Black Metal
Country: Greece
Year: 1998
Label: Mascot

Deviser is an obscure Greek band playing an interesting blend of death metal and atmospheric keyboardy black metal (the good kind, not the lame kind). The cover artwork is incredibly cool, and is actually what drew me to this album in the first place. The music within is also incredibly cool, characterized by a mystical, arcane atmosphere that really makes Transmission to Chaos a treat to listen to. Some songs have a more black metal vibe, while some are a bit more on the death metal side of the fence, making the overall sound difficult to describe. It doesn't sound disjointed as that might imply, however, as the overall album has a very cohesive atmosphere. This is a work of art forged in the depths of the underground. Awesome.
