It’s been nearly 7 years to the day since Ottawa’s Signs of Chaos (ft. members Fumigation, Norilsk, Damnus) released their EP “Watch It Burn” in April 2016. Known for their straight-up metal groove mixed with ferocious brutality, the Canadian band has their next offering “Blindsided” ready to sucker-punch you with new heavy riffs and angry vocals for loud play sure to get you hyped in the pit.
“I think we’ve stuck to the core sound that we established on the first album, but have started adding in additional elements and influences as we’ve gone on. This is our first album with some acoustic guitar parts and an instrumental track for example. We hope fans like it. While this album does go in some different directions than our previous material, it has a lot of the same elements as our earlier releases so people who liked those should find something to get into here.” adds guitarist Matt MacIvor.
The album touches on themes many fans can relate to from living everyday life, getting hurt and betrayed by others, growing up having an unstable home, addiction, and seeing how the world is turning upside down.
Today, the band presents their lead single “Bastard Son”, one of the last songs Signs of Chaos wrote for the record.
This song has become one of our favorites to play. It’s a high-energy track that really showcases our sound. We hope that the single gives listeners a taste of what’s to come from the new album ‘Blindsided’, and that they’ll be as excited as we are for the full-length’s release.” adds MacIvor.
