Bio

From their music, to their artwork, to their stage show; the band has taken no shortcuts in striving for greatness. Since their inception they have pushed the envelope with a series of stunning releases that would define them. They forged their name as one of the must-see emerging heavy acts with their relentless debut Ratio (2006) and from there continued to progress exponentially. Defying expectations with three phenomenal albums back-to-back (and one hell of a cover of Toto's Africa) Chaos Divine's musical output has been nothing short of heavyweight.

Each Chaos Divine album has built upon the one that came before it. The Human Connection (2011) was the perfect bridge between sheer heaviness and the increasingly more progressive sound that would define Colliding Skies (2015). Honouring this tradition, the band have raised the bar yet again with LEGACIES. Visceral and emotional, Legacies captures Chaos Divine at their absolute best

As live performers, Chaos Divine ascended from the ranks of a 'local band' to that of a national and then international touring act – growing from a sought-after support into a towering headliner. They have earned coveted spots on festivals in Australia and Europe, have been met with chart positions, radio play, and a global following that is beyond loyal. Now, led by the soaring feature track Beacon, Chaos Divine return with Legacies in hand – a testament to their own enduring legacy as Australia's most formidable progressive band.

Searching, powering heavy prog sounds from Chaos Divine. They know what they're doing.
