Guest review by

It's been some 17 years since Heathen put out their last full length - the technically fascinating "Victims of Deception" which helped to put a more virtuoso spin on a slowing Bay Area scene. Now jump ahead to 2005, and Heathen unleashes a demo which seems to have been frozen in time! Though short, just over 19 minutes, this demo seems to pack all the power of a full length into just three songs! This demo is chalk full of neck breaking riffs, blinding solos, pummeling drums, and David White's classic screams.

Rating: 9 Since these are also some of the best songs on "The Evolution Of Chaos" it's safe to say that this demo is amazing. Maybe people who prefer thrash over speed don't like this release as much, but IMO this sound suits Heathen better. I always considered Heathen more of a speed band, even though they used to do that thrashier bay area sound earlier.
