International all-female metal collective Chaos Rising premieres their thirteenth video for a new song titled “Limbo”.
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.
New song “Limbo”, written by Iranian vocalist Behnaz Ghavidel, is a huge symphonic metal track which exemplifies the importance and ambition of this project. Says Behnaz: “I am an Iranian musician. Metal music and being a female metal musician could present real challenges for me in my culture, but I accept this and do the best I can. Maybe I could inspire other women to stand their ground and never give up on their dreams.”
“Limbo” features a full orchestral arrangement by Ksenia Dolgorukova (Russia) , cello, bass and double bass from Natalia Rozanova (Russia), Chaos Rising guitarist Catherine Fearns (Switzerland) and drummer Renee Cobcroft (Australia). As always, production and mixing is by Stéphanie Nolf.
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. The ambitious vision is to release a new song every month, in different metal subgenres, which means that Chaos Rising teams are constantly composing, recording and mixing. These girls are innovating fast, exemplifying how musicians are networking to adapt and create amidst current challenges.
