A review from Brokendolls (March 17, 2006)

Un packaging impeccable, sobre mais efficace, un booklet contentant des illustrations qui en disent long sur la noirceur et les ténèbres de cet album (limité à 500 exemplaires).

Chaoticum: [Psycho] Log: Y (CD)

‚It is incredible, the strong presence of now… The unfettered persistence of being… That dread beast of awareness which, once awakened, can never be put back down again.‘ Weaving madness through electric sound and half-crazed vocals, this first full-length release from CHAOTICUM unveils the initial peering beyond the shroud of uncertainty into the gaping night, calling to mind the powerful ritual works of COPH NIA,...
