Vision of Disorder - _Vision of Disorder_
(Roadrunner, 1996)
by: Adrian Bromley (9 out of 10)
Just the sheer intensity of the opening track's music ("Element") or singer/growler Tom William's first screams sets the tone for this loud and truly stunning debut by this Long Island quintet. Vision of Disorder's debut is all about power within their music and the ability to be able to channel emotions into one powerful punch - something they have done with this release. Several times... over and over. The mixing of hardcore and death metal really set them apart from most young bands nowadays and William's lyrics are so real and honest that this record's material not only serves as a deliverance of intensity but allows William's words on life and society to take the spotlight too. A vigorous collection of material captivates this record, most notably "Through My Eyes", "Ways To Destroy One's Ambition", and "Zone Zero". I basically was blown away by the band's three-song sampler last issue and this full-length record just has me floored too. "Powerful" is the best word used to describe this record.
