“Chaos Reigns” on The Browning’s New Single
The Browning — which is now really just one dude, Jonny McBee — have released a new song called “Chaos Reigns.”
The title, I should not have to tell you, is a reference to Lars Von Trier’s extremely disturbing 2009 film, Antichrist. Specifically, it’s a reference to this moment, which is at once oddly funny and deeply unsettling:
For better or worse, that’s the extent of the similarities between Antichrist and The Browning’s “Chaos Reigns.” Antichrist is a transcendent journey into the deepest emotional and philosophical abyss life has to offer. “Chaos Reigns” is half boilerplate deathcore, half above-average Fear Factory wannabe. Not bad, but not quite on the same level as Von Trier’s masterpiece.
