Anger Management: Chaos Divine

Wednesday, March 25th, 2015

Every fortnight, we check in with all things heavy on RTRFM’s Critical Mass show.

A successful crowdfunding campaign has allowed Chaos Divine to make the album of their career. Four years on from 2011’s awesome The Human Connection, the new album takes all the elements of their past and filters them into a newer, more atmospheric direction.

There are lots of layers of sound here, including some extra keys and vocals. The songs are given a bit more room to breath, embracing some of the more proggy and almost post-rock influences such of Opeth, Porcupine Tree and Devin Townsend.

The highlights come when Chaos Divine hit the accelerator and amp up the heaviness. A return to some more harsh vocals on “Painted With Grey” is appreciated and reigns in some of the occasionally overwrought clean vocals.

Chaos Divine have made their best album so far and I’m sure they will back it up with some of their best live shows too.

Critical Mass airs every Wednesday from 9PM (GMT+8) on RTR FM 92.1 in Perth, Australia.
