Thanks to the Noisy Subculture blog for helping me to discover this classic of Greek anarcho-metal/punk scene. Χαοτικό Τέλος (Chaotic End) were a metallic crust punk band from Athens, formed in 1989 and disbanded in the mid-90s. They have released only two cassette demos and one LP, but they went down in history as one of the most unique bands of their era, who mixed thrash metal with raw crust/hardcore and added a bit of dark ambience. I think they're comparable to such bands as Amebix or Axegrinder, and even it isn't black metal at all, a lot of my readers may find their sound interesting. I can't understand their lyrics, but looks like they contain very harsh social criticism, as well as depression/personal-feelings themes.


P.S. Much more music of various kinds is coming soon, but first I'll try to give a detailed explanation of the situation with recent "snow revolutions" in ex-USSR. Stay tuned.

  2. Their lyrics are really extreme if you translate them.
