More metal from Canada! Lethbridge, Alberta’s TYRANTS OF CHAOS will release their 3rd album next month titled Relentless Thirst For Power. I’m not big on every genre of metal (not in to the likes of Metallica, Anthrax, etc… the big 4.) But I do like checking out new Canadian rock! And there is plenty of killer riffs, solos, and tunes here to take interest in. This is a pure heavy album and fun listen, with some interesting lyrics. Lots of power, energy, and passion here. Fave cuts being “Indoctri-Nation”, “No Lives Matter”, and the blazing “Skull Crusher”. The band recently released their brand new video for “T.O.C.” – check it out! *For more info check out the press release / bio below.
Tyrants of Chaos is a no-holds-barred traditional heavy metal band in the vein of the big four with a modern twist. They are imminently releasing a new album Relentless Thirst For Power, which will be their third.
The new album Relentless Thirst For Power covers a lot of topics lyrically, listeners will also be able to dive into the classic Teutonic power metal track “Indoctri-Nation” that focuses on mental health issues; the “No Live Matter” ballad that forces one to confront their mortality; and the classic “Lucky Dog” that is reminiscent of the ’80s sounds of the Big 4.
Formed in 2013 for the love and passion of music by guitarist Curtiss Vaselenak and to fill a gap in the local scene, the band originally started as a fun hard rock and metal cover band. After some shuffling, he is now joined by guitarist Arik Wagner, bassist Sean Simpson, drummer Ryan Dyck, and vocalist Phil Sirias who complete the current lineup. With many years of experience between them, they bring professionalism and solid musicianship to both the stage and the studio.
Tyrants of Chaos already have two albums under their belts, The Calm Before The Storm (2016) and Into Oblivion (2019), and this new offering consists of ten fist-pumping, head-banging tracks that were written specifically for this album. It is just scratching the surface of what the band has in store, they don’t intend to slow down anytime soon.
Heavy and loud, Tyrants Of Chaos delivers a solid pummeling of pure heavy metal. No gimmicks, no gags, just passion, and honesty. They are recommended listening for fans of Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and Megadeth.
