Behold, From the Ashes of Armageddon (Chris Amott) Comes Daughter Chaos
You may remember Armageddon, the two-decades-running Swedish melodic death metal outfit led by Christopher Amott (ex-Arch Enemy) whose most recent album, Captivity & Devourment, was one of my favorite metal albums of 2015.
While Armaggedon are currently on hiatus, four recent members of that band have re-formed as a new outfit, Daughter Chaos. Though Amott is not officially part of the lineup, fear not: he is still a contributing writer, and the band’s self-titled debut single (which Amott co-wrote) brings plenty of that classic, intricately weaved Swedish melodeath sorcery for which Armaggedon were known.
Daughter Chaos is:
Antony Hämäläinen (Armageddon, Nordjärvi, Nightrage): vocals
Joey Concepcion (Armageddon, Arch Enemy, Jasta, The Absence): guitar
Sara Claudius (Armageddon, The Obsessed): bass
Andrew Pevny (Armageddon): guitar
Yanni Sofianos (Obsession): drums
Check out “Daughter Chaos” below. The band’s forthcoming album will feature unreleased material written by bassist Sara Claudius that was intended to be for the next Armageddon album, alongside brand new songs.
