Dissecting, slicing and recombining the musical DNA of Extreme Metal since 2001.
After five studio album and countless tours, OTARGOS are back with their sixth studio full-length celebrating their 15th anniversary.
Completing the stylistic turn started with previous album “Apex Terror”, OTARGOS are back stronger than ever with a Dark Extreme Metal full-length adding to the bands’ trademark Blackened Death Metal structures, bits of Industrial Metal, Death Metal, Black Metal, Orchestral Gothic Metal (think SepticFlesh) and more for a unique result: dynamic, strong, heavy, dark, intense and modern yet absolutely catchy, full of dark anthems.
The lyrical concept OTARGOS have been developing since their inception, based on quantum physics chaos, multiverse evilness, alien predation and the Warhammer 40K RPG, Xeno Kaos is the great Beast that will prey on humans.
Produced at various locations, including Mathieu Pascal of GOROD’s own Bud Studio (GOROD, AD PATRES…) and Herr Kraus of THE ORDER OF APOLLYON’s own Vamacara Studio (ANTROPOFAGO etc.) “Xeno Kaos” is a masterpiece of subtle dark extreme metal, mixing ferocity with subtlety, absolutely addictive anthems with musical expertise and, above all, the exceptional song crafting talents of mainman Dagoth.
“Xeno Kaos” is the real first step in OTARGOS’ new musical orientation after the “Apex Terror” transition and it will definitely be a new Extreme Metal classic!
