History

Chaossworn was formed in 2009 as the follow-up band to Cryptic Death, which had existed for five years. Anton Johansson, Janne Posti, Andreas Pelli and drummer Niklas Pelli would found the new band, but Niklas (a Cryptic Death founder) would not remain.

In 2009, the band entered Bothnia Studios and recorded a demo called Chalice Of Black Flames. This was mastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound Studio. The demo was re-issued by Abyss Records in 2010 as an EP. The label connection was made through Swanö. The band had signed a single EP deal with the label. The band featured a new drummer by this point.

Anton is also a sound engineer.

Reviews

CHAOSSWORN - CHALICE OF BLACK FLAMES - ABYSS  
Chalice Of Black Flames is merely the band’s demo re-pressed on disc and issued by Abyss Records. As such, it merely features three songs and 15 minutes of music. As much as one would like to hear more music to be convinced the Swedes have achieved a high degree of proficiency and have released a convincing wave of brutal and melodic death metal with enough variety to be dynamic, without ever leaving the borders of metallic taste.
Of the three tracks, Crowned & Winged has a militaristic and pseudo-industrial beat, Bringer Of Storms hits the hardest and fastest and the title track offers the most variety, raging and chanting vocals and most intricate guitar work. The band’s closest analogy is none other than Necrophobic. Given that band’s infrequent stops at the studio picking up this Chalice is a good occasion to get some intense Swedish death. The sound is perfectly fine despite the disc’s demo origin. - Ali “The Metallian”
