According to DESTRAGE guitarist Matteo Di Gioia, going into the writing of The Chosen One, the band's fifth full-length, the plan was simple: "No bullshit. No half-baked or lukewarm stuff. No self-indulgence. No 'Okay, let's keep that because it's pretty good and we're friends' weak ass attitude." The results speak for themselves, building upon their already exemplary discography with humbling self-assurance. At the same time, it is very much an empowering record, encouraging both the members themselves and others to make peace with choices taken. Though persistently and consistently writing without break, the quintet locked themselves away for nearly an entire year to specifically pen the songs that made it onto The Chosen One, choosing to work in a far from lavish studio that was essentially "a subterranean, work-in-progress three-room mess hall with no heating and no air system." Closing themselves into such an uncomfortable space forced them to focus on what they were doing with no distractions, leading it to become their most intense release. As with all of their previous efforts, DESTRAGE make it impossible to pigeonhole their sound, with numerous labels applicable to the record but no single one able to tell the whole story. Moreover, from start to finish, The Chosen One seethes with an energy that is undeniable.
