CHAOS DIVINE // LEGACIES - CD
RELEASE DATE: October 16, 2020
The concept of legacy has had increasingly more meaning for Chaos Divine as time has gone by. As one of the world's finest progressive acts, they have secured their own legacy over the course of 15 years, three iconic albums, countless stage hours and a trophy cabinet full of awards and industry accolades.
Added to this, with band members recently entering into the world of parenthood for the first time, Legacies has not only emerged as the most fitting title for their gargantuan fourth album, but the theme that threads everything together.
From the dexterous opener Instincts, to the powerhouse finale of Into The Now, Legacies is a journey of exemplary musicianship and songwriting. Songs like Only Son, Colours Of War and the ambient title track affirm the album's concept, while singles False Flags and Unspoken each flaunt the band's staggering level of finesse.
Their progressiveness has never come at the cost of their songwriting, nor have their penchants for brutality and melody ever been at odds with one another. True to this, Legacies finds Chaos Divine galvanising the crushing heaviness of their early work with the musicality and atmosphere of their 2015 masterpiece Colliding Skies.
The process of writing Legacies was very different than previous records. After the colossal undertaking that was Colliding Skies, the band took a well-earned break from creating. Eventually, new ideas began to surface during intensive group writing sessions, and members of the band worked on other songs more or less in solitude.
As Legacies began to unfold, so too did its concept. Singer David Anderton explains, “Unlike our previous works, Legacies has a really strong theme throughout the album. Virtually every song in some way links back to the experience of parenthood and the innocence of children.”
