International all-female metal collective Chaos Rising unveils their seventh collaborative piece titled “Hostile Eyes”. Watch the video below.
Founded by French multi-instrumentalist Stéphanie Nolf (Unsafe, Syrinx), Chaos Rising is a unique project that brings together female metal musicians from across the globe. The collaboration is going from strength to strength, attracting some of the biggest names in metal including Britta Görtz (Critical Mess, Hiraes) and Mio Jäger (Frantic Amber).
New track “Hostile Eyes” is an empowering metalcore anthem, inspired by the Hitchcock movie “Gaslight”, which tackles the subject of coercive control. Featuring Stéphanie herself on guttural vocals and bass, clean vocals from Anika Ov Mosberg (Virocracy), Argentinian drummer Nicole Trinchero (Acroma), guitars and piano from Catherine Fearns (UK), and a blistering guitar solo from Barbara Teleki (UK).
Chaos Rising is blazing a trail, and not only by providing opportunities for women and gender minorities to become involved in all aspects of metal music. These girls are innovating fast, exemplifying how musicians are networking to adapt and create amidst the challenges of 2020.
