Hey Everyone! Check out my interview with vocalist Daniel Burger aka Dr. Demonic of Chaos Doctrine in the video above!!
Chaos Doctrine formed in 2011 and are based out of Johannesburg, South Africa. The band consists of drummer Hannes Matthysen, bassist and backing vocalist Phil Carstens, guitarist and producer Alec Surridge, and vocalist and mastermind of the band, ‘Dr. D’ Daniel Burger. Their sound is a fusion of Industrial, Black Metal, Death Metal and absolutely demonic vibes of Thrash and Speed.
They released their very first album titled, Chaos Doctrine, in 2018 followed by their 2019 EP, The Chaos Chronicles Volume I. Their most recent full length is titled, And In The Beginning They Lied, and was released in June of 2021! They are currently working on their next EP set to release sometime later this year titled, The Chaos Chronicles Volume II.
