Chaos Theory presents an evening of heavy electronics, innovative drone, ritual ambient doom and industrial music, from international pioneers of hardware and noise.
Author & Punisher (USA)
The solo project of Tristan Shone, a mechanical engineer who wandered from native Boston to California to pursue his
artistic interests. He ended up using his scientific skills to build custom musical instruments, which give added depth to the term “industrial”.
The mechanical processes that give life to the music aim to reproduce the rhythms of industrial machinery and its relationship to their human operators; a merging of the flesh and the steel.
“Staggering genius in [his] ability to transform the auditory pollution of industry into music.” – Noisey, VICE
This solo visionary explores themes of religion, magick and the occult realms of consciousness, taking musical cues from the old school of ritual ambient and death industrial. Rhythmic and seething at times, oozing forward with a creeping sense of desolation, Trepaneringsritualen conjures forth bleak but mesmerising visions of the end-times.
“Delves bone-deep into the dark recesses that fuel his need to create.” – Pitchfork
A visionary vocalist, producer and composer, who weaves dark tales of the female experience under religion, the patriarchy and general cultural hatred, using superhuman screams, industrial beats and gritty lyrics.
We’ve seen her perform around various noise and electronic events in Berlin and London, most recently taking part in performance event Shears For Tears at the Tate Modern.
A harrowing, enlightening and extreme experience.
“Sensitivity and subtlety even in the more violent sections.” – Radio Free Midwich

Chaos Theory presents a special edition of our long-running night, as we see an album release and a UK debut tour pass through from Chile.
Archelon (London release show)
A stunning post-metal and sludge band from Sheffield, who we saw just beginning to explode into their true selves last year.
Now a 5-piece band and with a powerful debut album under their belts, Archelon have reached a point where they have crafted a nuanced and textured sound, taking cues from Neurosis, Cult of Luna and Isis, yet standing out on their own.
Their album ‘Tribe Of Suns’ is out now via Sludgelord Records.
“Slow, raw, agressive, groove driven and undeniably heavy.” – The Sludgelord
La Bestia de Gevaudan (Chile)
This South American band pass through the UK for the first time on their way from Dunk!festival in Belgium. Blending genres that many of us may be familiar with, such as post-rock, sludge, electronica, post-metal and hardcore, they somehow have created a sound not totally like anything we’ve heard from European and North American bands in the same scenes.
Having already opened for Neurosis, Ruins Alone, Deafheaven and thisquietarmy, it’s time for the UK to catch up and discover something unconventional within a scene that the we know well.
Their forthcoming album ‘Kintsukuroi’ will be finished in the second half of 2018 and features Mike Armine (Rosetta) and Eric Quach (thisquietarmy).
“One of the most interesting proposals in the Chilean underground music scene” – Rockaxis
The latest band to join the roster for esteemed prog rock label Rockosmos, which already has many releases out for Amplifier, Awooga and Thumpermonkey.
A sumptuous throwback to some of the best grunge bands, so fans of Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots and Alice In Chains are going to be overjoyed to hear them. Proof that some of our foundations can be pulled forward and made relevant again.
