Italian Grunge/Stoner Metal band – Chaos Being – debut album is a very exciting and lively affair. The production could have done with more work in the early stages but Chaos Being craft a modern sounding record with touches of classic Stoner Rock appearing here and there.

Fans of Kyuss will no doubt get a kick out of this record as the band are slightly influenced by them on tracks such as Don't Understand and Sway. The grungier metallic vibe allows Chaos Being create a more psychedelic layered affair. Riccardo's vocals are assured from the start with fine instrumental work from the other members of the band.

Chaos Being are not doing anything new but they play with a fiery passion and that allows their music to offer some exciting riffs. Especially if you're in the mood for some good old fashioned Desert/Stoner Metal grooves. Though I wasn't expecting the Punk Rock vibes the band include on later stages of the album. I must say Riccardo does have a certain John Garcia style delivery with his vocals. Definitely one of the highlights of the album.

Do yourself a favour and check out Chaos Being. It's a shame the album is only on for 30 minutes or so but it gets the job done of entertaining the hell out of you. A seriously damn fine album. The future bodes well for Chaos Being.
