M.H.X's Chronicles are a band from Brazil that plays a very progressive and melodic form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "Infinite Ocean".
Ocean and nature sounds start off the album seconds later atmospheric and symphonic synths and orchestra's are added onto the recording along with some tribal beats and you can also hear a small amount of operatic female vocals and after the into the music goes into more of a heavy and melodic musical direction.
Melodic guitar leads can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording while the faster sections bring in a great amount of blast beats and the vocals also use a good mixture of death metal growls and high pitched screams and the music also alternates between slow, mid paced and fast parts and acoustic guitars when they are utilized gives the music more of a progressive feeling.
Some of the tracks also bring in a small amount of clean singing and the heavy parts also mix in with the symphonic elements at times and there are also a couple of tracks that are very long and epic in length and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording and some tracks also bring in elements of groove metal and one of the tracks also brings in Michael Oliveira from Seven Seals Of The Apocalypse and they also bring in a cover of "Amazing Grace" before closing the album with 2 original tracks.
M.H.X's Chronicles plays a style of melodic death metal that is in the more modern style and also mixes in a lot of symphonic and progressive elements to create their own style, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics are based on The Chronicles Of Narnia by C.S Lewis.
In my opinion M.H.X's Chronicles are a very great sounding symphonic, progressive and melodic death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Conquest Of The Oceans" "This Way Home" and "A Winter Song". 8 out of 10.
