The Chasm have been around for many years now, and this is where it all started off. "Procreation of the Inner Temple" is the deathcult's first full length album consisting of 6 new tracks and 2 bonus tracks from their demo "Awaiting the Day of Liberation". Limited to only 1000 copies, it has become well sought after by fans of the band.
The Chasm have a very unique sound, and on this album it represents it fully. While most bands try to copy one another, The Chasm have created a sound that is all of their own. Gloomy, Dark, and Mysterious.
Daniel Corchado's vocals have a black metal sound to them. Not that they are shrieking and high, he does growl, but they are a mid-range mixture between growl and shriek. His lyrics on this album aren't your typical "I Eat your Fetus" death metal style. Instead Daniel looks deep within himself to find the answers of life, and why his soul is on this world. The lyrics can be depressing and mourningful, yet have a vivid sense of hatred.
Antonio Leon clearly displays his own style of drumming on the album. You wont find the common blastbeats in this album as you would in most death or black metal bands music. Instead he uses more intricate work on the double bass, He mixes it up quite a bit. Also note that he uses a lot of Cymbal work, differant rolls and fills using the cymbals to give the music that melodic, yet strong fierce feeling.
I have yet to find a band that's guitar work sounds like The Chasm's. Its hard to say who wrote most of the guitar work on this album Daniel or Luis Martinez (now of Serpens Aeon). Never the less the guitarwork is amazing. I dont know how they do it, it is a style that is very hard to be duplicated in my opinion. It will go from strong heavy riffs to being very melodic with the use of acoustic guitars. While there are many bands that now introduce acoustic guitars into their metal, The Chasm do it with their own sense of style, you wont find the swedish melo-death acoustic style anywhere on this album, like you find with many other bands.
Rodolfo's Bass on the album comes out very clear, and loud compared to most death metal bands where the bass is almost non-existent untill it has a solo. It adds to the mood of the album very well. While I can't tell exactly how technical it is. The riffs he plays are damn good.
All in all, this is a great album and one of my favorites. If your looking for a band with an original sound, pick this album up with no hesitation if you can find it.
