Horfixion - _Instigators of Chaos_
(Galy Records, 2002)
by: Quentin Kalis (
Horfixion are a Canadian band performing a mixture of thrash and death metal, and have performed with bands of the calibre of Cryptopsy and Kreator. The production on _Instigators of Chaos_ could be better, but considering that the band recorded this album by themselves, independent of any label (Galy Records is merely their distributor), then the level of production is perfectly acceptable. However, it does tend to make the music sound the same throughout, though careful listening reveals that this album is actually fairly varied. The vocals are shouted in a modified death metal style that is vaguely decipherable. The best song is "Le Retour de La Grande Faucheuse", sung in their native French and showcasing the guitarist's classical training through an acoustic fingerpicking intro. There are some interesting moments on _IoC_, but the listener will have to decide whether it is worthwhile to purchase this album based on personal taste.
