Featured Band: Kaoteon

Bandcamp

KAOTEON is an unusual east-west international extreme metal collaboration, originally hailing from the Middle East but now based in Amsterdam. For their new album, Damnatio Memoriae, full-time members Anthony Kaoteon (Death Drive) on guitar and vocalist Walid Wolflust (Ordum, ex-Gothmog) tapped the distinctive talents of bass wizard Linus Klausenitzer of Obscura and drum master Fredrik Widigs of Marduk as guests. After performing with them live for the first time in Beirut in April at the Beirut Metal Fest, Klausenitzer described KAOTEON as, “legends of the Lebanese metal scene”.  The album drops February 23. Click below for album tracks and the video to Damnatio Memoriae.
