The Chosen are a duo from the Netherlands that plays a blackened form of thrash metal and this is a review of their 2022 album "Resistance Leading To Strength" which was released by Heidens Hart Records.
A very fast and aggressive thrash metal sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams while the music is also very heavily influenced by both the first and second wave era's of the genre and the riffs also add in a lot of melody.
Synths can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them along with some tremolo picking also being added into some of the faster riffing at times as well as one track also adding in a brief use of spoken word parts and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very dark y et melodic style.
The Chosen plays a musical style that takes black and thrash metal and mixes them together to create a sound of t heir own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Paganism, War and History themes.
In my opinion The Chosen are a very great sounding blackened thrash metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Geysers Of Soil" "When The Dust Settles" "Upon The Threshold Of The Black Gate" and "Wolfhound - Dragontank". 8 out of 10.
