Tech-Death Trio CHAOS SANCTUARY Releases Concept Album, Instrumentality!

Technical Death Metal trio Chaos Sanctuary released Instrumentality, its first full-length album, on December 29, 2023. The album can be streamed and/or purchased at the following links:

Instrumentality was created as a concept album pertaining to the popular anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion, as the subject fit perfectly within the confines of the music. The goal was to create an album that functioned as an immersive, beginning-to-end listening experience. Mission accomplished!

Guitarist/songwriter Tony Barhoum began working on the material that would become Instrumentality during the summer of 2020 to follow up the self-titled EP that was released in June of that year. As musicians, Chaos Sanctuary comprises all different types of influences across several different genres. On Instrumentality, the band seamlessly melds tech-death, djent, thrash metal, jazz-fusion, and guitar-driven instrumentals into one succinct album, while making it palatable to the average listener.
