"Resolution" (Self-released; 2013)

Reviewed by Snidermann

"I like my music like I like my life, everything louder than everything else." - Meat Loaf on "Bat from Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell"

Leave it to two of the greatest sages of our age, Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman, to give me a phrase that puts into perfect perspective what I feel about Chosen and their recording "Resolution."

"Resolution" ranges from fast, loud and explosive to blistering and bombastic and it all comes together to make a truly exciting heavy metal recording. Sometimes the vocals are hard to understand, but they still fit, and that does not change the fact that "Resolution" is a killer heavy metal recording.

Another thing that makes Chosen a truly awesome band is the fact that they are a duo. That's right - all that angst and metal is all created by two people. This Irish duo, David McCann and Paul Shields, put together a truly spectacular musical experience.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
