Simon Mitchell, the guitarist, from Perth’s heavy progressive rockers, Chaos Divine is next in the queue, submitting his best of the best as Wall of Sound’s ‘Year in Review’ continues.
Chaos Divine enjoyed an enormous 2015, with the release of their stellar sophomore album Colliding Skies. The band kicked off the year with a few shows with fellow Sandgropers, Voyager before the release of the new album and a national tour in support throughout March. The band also played alongside international touring bands, The Ocean and Tesseract, whilst also playing a few shows with Alithia, helping launch that band’s album. With Megadeth‘s Dave Mustaine running around the world posing whilst wearing Chaos Divine t-shirts, you can bet the guys are doing something right!
