Prog metal outfit CHAOSBAY from Berlin / Kaiserslautern are re-releasing their
debut album VASILISA (2015) as a completely remastered version. This time with a
classy digipack design, including lyrics and credits.
With its digital release in 2015, the album made the band internationally known as a
prog insider tip. The record is based on the Russian fairy tale "The beautiful Vasilisa"
by Alexander Afanasyev and is a concept album, which tells the story in terms of
content and music through all eight chapters.
Brutal staccato riffs, double-bass thunderstorms and epic melodies lead through this
piece at high speed. The sound can be compared to bands like DREAM THEATER,
OPETH and PORCUPINE TREE. In the process, topics are repeatedly taken up,
processed and combined almost symphonically to form a large overall work that
sounds closed, entertaining and exciting.
Singer and main songwriter Jan Listing screams, growls, sings playfully over several
octaves, from gentle to aggressive. Virtuoso instrumental passages alternate with
catchy hooklines and atmospheric pads.
Produced and mixed by Daniel Weber (bass player for German prog-gods THE
INTERSPHERE), the album shines with a powerful, modern and yet organic sound.
VASILISA brings CHAOSBAY into another league and gives a foretaste of the highly
acclaimed follow-up album ASYLUM (2020).

Keep your feet still? Stay cool? Only ice-cold guys can do that with the songs of the Berlin band KENSINGTON ROAD. Everyone else is immediately hooked on the band's modern, international sound, which skilfully bridges the gap between indie rock and alternative pop. Authentic songs that get by without bells and whistles - because after thousands of kilometers in the tour bus through all of Europe and countless live shows, the “hard-working band” knows exactly what they are singing about.
With stories of friendship, solidarity and confidence, but also stumbling, falling and getting up again, SEX DEVILS OCEAN goes straight to the heart. Especially in times like these, KENSINGTON ROAD show all social and personal insecurities the finger and always remain positive. Far from the usual rock clichés, the band lures the audience from their reserves with forward-pushing energy and a passionate live show. Real, authentic, no bullshit.
“Electrifying songs with battle-tested riffs, tingling melodies and a high density of instruments. Original and exciting - rock that is fun without being fun. "(KN)
