Chaos Theory - _Scarred for Life_
by: Adrian Bromley (3 out of 5)
The bio by this New Jersey three-piece says that they "... want to be the future of heavy metal, not a memory of the past". Well... not exactly as they had planned, but I guess a good attempt to constructing heavy metal music in this day and age. Unlike the strength and perseverance of the almighty Manowar (around since 1982), Chaos Theory have been working since forming in 1995 to create metal and they have a long ways to go until they can really call themselves a -true- metal band as Manowar have. But aside from that, the 6-song outing by this metal band is okay. It's got the right attitude and right sound (check out "I Abandon" or "Kill the System"), it's just that I'm not too keen on some of the vocals and the ideas behind some of the songs, though not funny topics (rape, murder, and suicide) sound cheesy. A good attempt to introduce metal into 1997 I guess, just not sure how well it will go over to the somewhat fickle metal music audience of today.
