Chaos Theory: A Blistering Assault On The Ears

Chaos Theory, is fronted by singer/songwriter Rock Johnson, who along with members Lex Coulstring (guitar/vocals), Scott McKenzie (lead guitar), Tim Garagan (bass) and Craig Brown (drums) complete this melodic rock and alternative metal band.

Chaos Theory’s self-titled debut album, hit stores to praiseworthy reviews and critical acclaim, and it’s easy to see why. This album is pure “energy rock”, it displays all of the band’s technical strengths, adding mature and reflective lyrics to  melodies filled with anger, frustration, a building rage, and an overall intensity. Front-man Rock Johnson adds the final ‘cherry on top’, as he tears the lyrics apart from the depths of his being.

I listened to the entire album, track-by-track, and didn’t once have the urge to switch off or skip one single song. It’s a rare thing for that to happen, so I applaud these bad-ass boys for crafting such a strong, unified debut album. The songs are all masterfully crafted, drawing on Chaos Theory’s strengths; its strong powerful vocals, dirty cranked-up amps and driving rhythm section. Many of the songs hit you like a runaway train with their powered guitar riffs.

Straight-off “Remind” is a blistering assault on the ears, and Rock Johnson confirms how uncannily close, to a mix of Ozzy Osbourne and Sammy Hagar he sounds. Likewise, “Save Yourself” and the fierce and nasty “Afterthought”, are both venomous yet catchy and downright crunchy. “Silhouette” is also a rollicking affair, and the inclusion of “Dead Inside” keeps the album’s intensity genuine. But most surprising is the swirling, brooding “Broken Dream” and “Scarred” with its dreamily powerful ambiance and melodic vocals.

Make no mistake though, most of this album is meant to please the heavy rock and metal fans who like the harder side of Chaos Theory. It contains some of the heaviest songs written, and a couple of atmospheric tracks that complement the album nicely. Moreover, the album possesses the best assets of this band; fierce, crunchy alternative-metal, representing the brutal beauty of their music, bared for all to see.

Chaos Theory leaves the best for last, as the penultimate track, “Hollow Heart”, is perhaps the most powerful, radio-ready hit song on the album. Overflowing with crunchy riffs, hooks, solos and unbridled energy; the twin guitar sound, drive this song like a hurricane, while the vocals soar high above the pounding drum- and-bass engine-room.

Chaos Theory close the album down with a solitary piano theme, almost as if to allow you to recapture your breath and runaway heartbeat, after eleven tracks of awesome power, raw energy and great musicianship.

It is clear that the angry vocals with crunching guitars, great basslines, and quick-wristed drumming are definitely going to establish this band as a rock solid outfit!
