Zao's latest (and last?) doesn't mess about. "The Buzzing" starts this album off how it means to continue, and continue it does at breakneck speed, only really pausing for breath on the ballad "Man In The Womb" and industrial instrumental "The Ballad Of Buddy Bigsgy". Zao are definitely living up to their Latin translation of Alive on 'POC'. The music for the most part is completely unrelenting, and Cory Darst's strong vocals give the tracks the drive they deserve. It's testimony that this album was made, considering the major breakups Zao have suffered, but 'A Parade Of Chaos' is as good as they come.
