Chaos Magic feat Caterina Nix announced their upcoming album, Furyborn, about this time last month. The album is set to release on 14 June under Frontiers Records and will be missing the first album’s chief songwriter: Timo Tolkki (Stratovarius). Instead, Chilean fireball Caterina Nix has taken over these duties, and promises that Furyborn will be a very different experience from Chaos Magic’s self-titled debut.
Their first single, ‘Furyborn’, backs that claim up a thousand times over. Featuring Evergrey’s Tom Englund, it’s heavy, emotional, and a promising first taste of what’s to come.
Here’s what Caterina has to say about the band’s new sound:
“I wanted to mix different styles and also seek a sound of my own and I think that is well achieved in Furyborn. It’s a mixture of heavy, melodic, symphonic, and alternative metal, with traces of modern progressive and electronic elements, unique arrangements and a bit of a nostalgic feel associated to certain sounds from the ’90s and early ’00s. It has moments of rage, power, and sick darkness, but also vulnerable, sensual, and sometimes playful points. Furyborn is harder to label compared to the previous Chaos Magic album since on the new album the guitars are a more prominent ingredient that gives tremendous richness to the sound. In summary, Furyborn is a rollercoaster ride that flows through assorted intense styles with uncommon arrangements but with very catchy melodies.”
