THE ORDER OF CHAOS – REVIEWS UKP1 - FRONT COVER

“The order of Chaos bristles with chugging riffs, cranked groove sand charging melodies ………. This is an album delivered with skill and crushing force!”

8/10 METAL HAMMER UK

“The Order of Chaos” is a malicious cut of modern British thrash”

3/5 TERRORIZER

“At times mournful, at times incredibly violent, ‘The Order Of Chaos’ delivers 12 tracks of unbridled, un-glorified passion, this isn’t an album that could be faked; you cannot fail to come away from this feeling the inherent emotional charge”

8.5/10 METALMOUTH

“Stuff ya sub genres Beholder play metal.  Full Stop!”

KKK KERRANG

“Anger dripping off of every riff and every word Simon Hall utters throughout as he declares The Order of Chaos is Now!”

9/10 PLANETMOSH

“The band has obviously grown since The Awakening, tempering the anger with more control.” 

RATING: *****/5  WYRD WAYS ROCK SHOW

“British heavy metal is back at its best with Beholder being champions of the cause”.

RATING:  MMMMM/5  METAL GODS TV

“This slight change of direction means that they have both the chops and the aggression to become a big force with this excellent album combined with their great live show will win people over then they will just ascend up the ladder on their own terms”

8/10 MUSIPEDIA OF METAL

These guys are at the forefront of British heavy metal with this album. It is so powerful with its top quality solid guitar work and the vocals are strong and full of passion. It is one of the best albums I have heard this year so far I think to beat this you have to go a long way cause this has it all for me”

10/10 METAL SHOCK (FINLAND)

“The Order of Chaos” is an album that captures British heavy metal at its very best”

8/10 THIS IS NOT A SCENE

“Listening to this album it’s impossible to see how people are going to resist it, it’s got everything you could possibly want from a ‘proper’ metal record!”

LOUD STUFF  

“Simon Hall who is one of the best vocalists on the British metal circuit!”

8/10 MUSIPEDIA OF METAL

“This is an album with not a single ‘filler track’, each sounding like it was crafted by metal musicians with heart rather than a bean counting ad man, all the while transcending sub-genres”. 

9/10 AVE NOCTUM

“If Pantera and Nevermore had a hate child it would be Beholder!”

GREG MOFFITT

“At times the constant barracking about fickle times, corruption and world chaos becomes almost overbearing but it’s this aural battery that brings a smoky, hard to breath sensation to the album, oozing an intensity that very few British bands will come close to this year. As a result this gives the music a strong, home made power that burns through the soul, each and every musical note biting with extra fervour than before.”

3.5/5 METAL RULES

“Powerful, Heavy, Angry, Superb!”

5* FESTIVAL PHOTO

 ‘The Order Of Chaos’ is a fine work indeed, an honest album, made by honest musicians not a million miles from where it all began.  Heavy metal may well be played around the world, but somehow it always sounds best when it comes home”

GET YOUR ROCK OUT!

“The Order Of Chaos has bloody knuckles from all the punches it throws, but it chooses its victims carefully and deservedly – With groove, melody, refreshing dynamism and a big middle-finger salute to ignorance everywhere”

2010 LIVE TOUR REVIEWS

“I can’t work out if there is any one inspiration here; any one band I can say ‘They sound like these guys’. It’s just a heady mix of all the better bits of metal’s 40 years and it’ll blow you to the other side of the room.” CAMDEN UNDERWORLD REVIEW – SONIC ABUSE

“The band deliver a mighty 45 minutes of heavy metal showcasing tracks from the debut album ‘The Awakening’. Songs such as ‘March Of The Damned’ and ‘Born Into Pain’ have never sounded quite so good. The only venom Simon Hall has is saved is for Simon Cowell and TV talent shows along with an angry tirade against the Pope that heads nicely into the greatest track that Nevermore never wrote ‘The Heretic’.” HOBO’S BRIDGEND REVIEW – UBER ROCK

“They have an intense stage presence, a huge sound and all the passion of pure traditional Heavy Metal band, that Mr Dio himself would have loved to have been in the audience for. Simon Hall is one of those vocalists who’s sheer power and personality could win over any crowd, and he literally had my hair standing on end.” MAMMOTHFEST REVIEW WYLDESTONE 

Beholder are certainly too low down on the bill, and will be hard for others to contend with” SOUNDSHOCK (HAMMERFEST REVIEW)

“If you’ve never had the chance to check out Beholder, I strongly suggest that you do!” METALHEADZ

“Nobody could of followed Beholder tonight – FACT!” METALTALK

“Vocalist Simon Hall’s ranges of nasty and almost vicious lyrics are complemented with an epic old school wail that Mr. Dickenson would be proud of.” GETREADYTOROCK

“Their set at Bloodstock was one of many highlights for that festival and they approached this with equal vigour.” KOMODO ROCK

“The humongous sound that is Beholder continued the night apace by attacking your senses as each track ripped its way out of the speakers” ROCKSOUND
