'Chimica' which means 'Chemistry' in Italian is a concept album that looks at that aspect of our bodies in different ways. The music here is complex and often chaotic with theatrical vocals. It did take many listens to finally get into the first song 'Chemotaxis' which is almost 35 minutes long. Funny but the other six songs I liked right away, and they continue to be my favourites on the album.

'Chemotaxis' opens powerfully as drums are pounded violently. Vocals a minute in. This song contrasts the heavy, chaotic passages with the calm ones throughout. It's really an amazing ride that can be difficult to enjoy at times. The drumming especially is really outstanding. The music is very technical at times and at other times quite melodic. As I said in the intro, this suite was difficult to digest and to come to terms with, but it was worth the patience. 'Dave In The Swimming Pool' has a fun, uptempo intro before they get serious and impress me with their instrumental prowess. Back to the fun again until a shred-fest before 2 1/2 minutes takes over. This instrumental ends as it began. 'La Belle Dame' opens with riffs and organ runs as drums are pounded into submission. It turns lighter sounding a minute in. The drumming is fantastic before 2 1/2 minutes. Vocals 3 minutes in as it calms right down. A killer guitar solo after 6 minutes. Another calm a minute later with vocals. A heavy soundscape 8 1/2 minutes in.

'Immer Unterwegs' is a great instrumental with powerful organ and heavy guitar. A brief calm 1 1/2 minutes in. Love the drumming in this one too. 'Psychic Infrared' features a soundscape that seems to swirl until the theatrical vocals come in with powerful organ runs. This contrast continues. 'Immune (He Knows My Strength...)' has a good melody with bass. Guitar comes in grinding away after a minute. Cool song. 'No More' opens with a relaxed guitar melody as crisp drums join in. Background synths arrive and it all sounds so good. The tempo picks up 2 minutes in but it's brief. It turns sinister 3 minutes in with tortured vocals to follow. It continues to be dark and intense until it ends.

This is a unique band no doubt about that. If you could imagine blending ZERO HOUR with IN THE WOODS... you might be getting warm.
