Children, how time flies! Now Chevelle have already beaten twenty years on the hump. With "La Gárgolia" they release their seventh album. They wouldn't be Chevelle if they didn't get another effective increase over the previous album (in this case "Hats Off To The Bull"). The trio from Chicago has "La Gárgolia" completely brushed on horror: Chevelle are hardrocking do-gooders and in their new songs they ruthlessly reveal the horror that surrounds us or even pour oil on the fire. Thanks to an intensified industrial component, the level of toughness has also been significantly increased, which is especially noticeable in angry ovations like "Under The Knife" and "Jawbreaker". In "The Damned" the zombies are released. "One Ocean", on the other hand, is Chevelles' contribution to climate protection in the form of a frighteningly sentimental ballad. That's what they do with them. Finally, the semipower track "Twinge" transports tension, atmosphere and pathos.
