Leading audiences and listeners through a journey of uncompromising arrangements, crushing heavy riffs and soaring melodies, Perth’s enigmatic prog metal five-piece CHAOS DIVINE have well and truly immersed themselves in a realm of sound and style matched by few, and admired by many.
With a suite of industry accolades, national and international tours, and appearances at SOUNDWAVE and BIG DAY OUT festivals under their belt, CHAOS DIVINE have carved out an impressive reputation for delivering a powerful and dynamic live show. The band has supported some of the biggest names in rock and metal including SLAYER, MASTODON, TESSERACT, ANIMALS AS LEADERS, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, FEAR FACTORY, DARK TRANQUILITY, TRIVIUM, THE OCEAN, DEVIL DRIVER, STATIC-X, and more.
With an EP and three studio albums under their belt, the band now offers up Colliding Skies (2015), their most accomplished record to date that delivers a bold step-change to an already proven formula. The follow-up to 2011’s The Human Connection - the group’s critically acclaimed second studio album, branded by many as a benchmark in modern progressive metal – Colliding Skies showcases a new level of craftsmanship in power and melody. It is being heralded globally as one of 2015’s best progressive heavy albums.
‘Soldiers’, the first single from the new album, shot to #1 on the Australian iTunes metal charts and took out the 2014 West Australian Metal Song of the Year Award. Following their recent signings to INTROMENTAL (European & US bookings), and WILD THING PRESENTS (Australian bookings), CHAOS DIVINE look set for an even bigger future.
Colliding Skies is out now through Firestarter Music.
