Chaos Theory presents an evening of noise, math rock, prog and post-rock, as we celebrate Bristol trio Memory Of Elephant’s debut album Beachballin’. This will be the first place you’ll be able to pick up a copy.

Memory of Elephants – Noisy cacophony, spliced with intricately complex composition, spliced with soaring post-rock jams. Always an amazing time.

HAG – Riotous punk and stoner rock from the London trio.

Upcdownc – Krautrock meets heavy sludge. After their brilliant set at 9 Years Of Chaos, we couldn’t wait to get them back.

Vodun “Ascend” album launch

Two and a half years after they broke into the wider consciousness with the launch of “Possession”, Chaos Theory presents the defiant fireball that is Vodun, who are back with their new album “Ascend”.

————————–
Vodun

Towering over the foundations of of their debut album, Vodun return to the city that forged them after touring Europe, sharing the stage with bands including Amenra, Turbowolf, The Picturebooks, Steak, Orange Goblin, Witchsorrow, Masiro and Uncle Acid and the deadbeats, and taking part in Desertfest London, Hellfest, Afrompunk Festival and Desertfest Belgium.

With an ever-clearer vision and sound to respond to the ominous political shifts occurring around the globe, this is the trio’s most ferocious war-cry to date.

“A wholly unique and positively electrifying take on heavy metal-tinged, hard-charging afro-psych” – Noisey

“Consistently raising the bar” – Afropunk

————————–
Bruxa Maria

Playing either as a trio or four-piece, Bruxa Maria hit back hard against the dismal world band leader Gill Dread sees around her, by playing politically-charged punk, sludge and noise, with a powerful focus that levels all. Featuring electronic noise generator Mark Dicker.

They’ve been well received at Supernormal Festival and when supporting Terminal Cheesecake, Hey Colossus and Casual Nun and we can’t wait to see them back again in London.

“Sublimely furious” – The Quietus

“Full of smart twists and turns.” – Echoes And Dust

————————–
The Hyena Kill

A Manchester-based duo, playing pure hard rock, mixed in with elements of noise, groove metal and post-hardcore.

Having already secured slots at Download Festival and Portals this year, The Hyena Kill sit comfortably in lineups in the metal, doom, indie and math rock scenes, so one guaranteed to go down well with fans of tonight.

“A diversity of styles swirling in their sound” – Distorted Sound Magazine

Start: September 13, 2018 7:30 pm
End: September 13, 2018 11:00 pm
Venue: Oslo
Phone: 020 3553 4831

Chaos Theory/Match& fuse present: The Display Team, Magnus Loom, Ms Mercy

Genre-fluid promoters of the weird and wacky Chaos Theory join forces with promoters of avant-garde jazz, prog and all manner of genre-colliding music Match&Fuse, to present a special lineup of audio oddities.

———————
The Display Team

Two years after Chaos Theory had the sheer giggly joy of working with this supergroup on their sold out album launch show.

Containing members of Nøught, Gong and Knifeworld, this prog-punk orchestra creates a heavy assault of surprisingly upbeat, melodic nonsense, resulting in something like a cross between The Specials and Mr Bungle.

“A beast with 24 limbs, and 6 brains fused into a sympathetic matrix of heady harmonies, ballistic brass, romping-stomping riffs and more “wonk” than a bad hedge.” – Sputnikmusic

———————
Magnus Loom

A heady mix of almost indefinable sounds, utilising heavy electronics, light-fingered instrumentation and falsetto vocals to result in a medley of experimental pop and punk. Of sorts.

“A cornucopia of brightly burning pitches and rhythms.” – Folk and Honey

———————
Ms Mercy (launch gig)

A new noise project of total chaos, rock, metal, noise, prog, punk and more, featuring members of WorldService Project. A brilliant FNM/SOAD/Bunglesque experience.

Start: May 11, 2018 7:30 pm
End: May 11, 2018 11:00 pm
Venue: New River Studios
Phone: 07794 450127
Address:
199 Eade Road, London, N4 1DN, United Kingdom
Cost: £6

The Facemelter at NRS

This month, Chaos Theory’s long-running event is in a different venue for a change! And all for an immense display of jawdropping math rock glory.

——————-
Memory Of Elephants

A trio from Bristol who are insanely brilliant at making technically perfect math rock sound like noise and making noise rock sound like progressive perfection.

They blew us away at when playing with Zolle last year and with and at The Facemelter the year before. Come and wrap your noodles around this sound.

“A psychedelic, noisy twist on their math-rock sound.” – Atom Smasher Music

——————-
Codices

A band we saw playing with Lost In The Riots last year, and one who’s made a strong start to their career with their debut EP ‘Illuminations’.

Sitting between exciting and pacey math rock and instrumental post-rock, they’re a hit with fans of any type of rock music.

“Reaching back into a time when math-rock and post-rock were closer than they are now” – Echoes And Dust

——————-
A Werewolf!

A frantically awesome guitarist-drummer outfit playing what can only be described as a cacophonous mix of math rock and grindcore, with the party attitude of slam death metal.

Truly awesome stuff.

“Throws the listener around like a rag doll and is as majestic as it is uncomfortable.” – Louder Than War Magazine

Start: May 4, 2018 7:30 pm
End: May 4, 2018 11:00 pm
Venue: New River Studios
Phone: 07794 450127
