“Where Chaos Thrives”, the new single by the Danish tech melodeath band CHRONICLE, is the final statement and also the title-track of their upcoming album, to be released in May. It is the inevitable conclusion to the thematic concept that will be the backbone of the record and a final farewell for the human race.
“This is where our world is heading, if something fundamental doesn’t change in the way we live on this planet”, the band comments on the song. “If we do not act, the Earth will become a place where no human life survives and only chaos thrives. Musically the song is complex with many twists and turns, as the song goes from crushing heaviness to the final passage of melancholic acoustic guitars”.
Today Metal Shock Finland has a pleasure to premiere for Finland CHRONICLE’s new digital single + Video, enjoy the premiering below.
2023 will be known for a lot of things. And among all of them, the slight “detail” that will be CHRONICLE’s third full-length album, “Where Chaos Thrives”, will likely put melodic/technical death metal fans in a frenzy. The record elevates the young Danes’ sound to a new level of brutality and technicality, enhanced by the superior production, mixing and mastering done by Tue Madsen (Meshuggah, The Haunted, The Black Dahlia Murder). With artwork done by Samuel Nelson (Allegaeon, First Fragment, Vale Of Pnath), “Where Chaos Thrives” has all the right ingredients in the right quantities to be a pure death metal onslaught.
The sound of Chronicle is a ferocious combination of melodic death metal and technical thrash elements. Lightning-fast drums, soaring solos and catchy guitar harmonies are the key ingredients in this cocktail of heaviness. The band consists of competent players, who each have many years of experience performing in front of crowds of all sizes. The band’s energetic live shows reveal a true passion for performing and each member of the band is determined to make every performance unique and energetic. Chronicle has played all over Denmark including some of the best metal events and festivals the country has to offer and also ventured into German territory.
Prepare yourself for the death metal sweeping winds of “Where Chaos Thrives”, a true extreme metal masterpiece to be remembered for years to come.
“Where Chaos Thrives” will be released on LP (black vinyl, limited to 300 copies), CD and digital formats via Mighty Music on May 19th, 2023.
