All-female international metal project Chaos Rising has now been releasing music for over two years, uniting the best female metal musicians from across the world. From brutal death to symphonic to doom, the girls have worked tirelessly to bring out a song and video every month, showcasing the talents of women across the metal spectrum.
Chaos Rising was founded in 2019 by French multi-instrumentalist Stéphanie Nolf (Unsafe, Syrinx), and since then the project has grown from strength to strength, releasing to date twenty singles and videos. The double album will feature a brutal side and melodic side, incorporating thirty-six female-identifying musicians from eighteen countries. This is a completely unique concept that demonstrates the richness of metal music. There will also be a brand new, as-yet-unreleased song.
Until now Chaos Rising has been a completely zero-budget project, with musicians giving their hard work for free and often having to pay for their own studio time and equipment. And it will remain an unpaid project; without a label or studio, Stéphanie Nolf has mixed and mastered the album herself, with artwork by bassist/graphic designer Tina Gruschwitz. However in order to finance the costs of CD production, distribution and promotion, the girls have launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. Supporters can pre-order a limited edition CD, plus t-shirt and free gift!
