Dystopia Streaming Full New Album “Chaos Philosophorum”

Dutch black metal group Dystopia has now unleashed second full-length album “Chaos Philosophorum,” which can be heard in full below or picked up in various formats at Bandcamp here.

The album was recorded at Studio Helvete in Den Helder, mixed by Thomas Cochrane of TC Music Productions and finally mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. Artwork for the follow-up to 2013’s “Haat” was designed by Adam Burke.

Themes on “Chaos Philosophorum” deal with space, existence, and death. The band comments: “We wanted to combine these concepts in our artwork, so we took the medieval plague doctor as a strong and recognizable symbol of death, and combined it with the almost magical shapes and colors of a galaxy. As if he is casting a spell. The artist Adam Burke did a tremendous job converting our ideas into this artwork.”

Dystopia Streams “Black Death” Single

Dutch black metal crew Dystopia will unleash second full-length album, “Chaos Philosophorum,” on April 21st. The band has now unveiled the second track entitled “Black Death” – listen in below.

Dystopia comments: “‘Black Death’ explores the idea of what it means to live in a dystopia. It’s about the thought that a dystopic society can’t only exist because of a corrupt government, but it can also materialize by the absence of one. What happens when your leaders die because of the black plague? What happens when nobody knows what to do and the structure of civilization falls apart? It is a mixture of doom and fleeting hope and the music reflects that.”

The album was recorded at Studio Helvete in Den Helder, mixed by Thomas Cochrane of TC Music Productions and finally mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. Artwork for the follow-up to 2013’s “Haat” was designed by Adam Burke from Nightjar Illustration.

“After years of growing and maturing towards our own sound, ‘Chaos Philosophorum’ feels like the first serious step in our own direction. This album represents us one hundred percent, both musically and emotionally. It includes influences from a lot of diverse musical genres, but I feel that we succeeded in making this album both original and organic.”

Themes on ‘Chaos Philosophorum’ deal with space, existence and death. Onsia goes on to say, “We wanted to combine these concepts in our artwork, so we took the medieval plague doctor as a strong and recognizable symbol of death, and combined it with the almost magical shapes and colors of a galaxy.
