Johannesburg, South Africa: Chaos Doctrine emerged with it’s ” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>first single in April of this year. Consequently, a second followed and now a third was released this week with ‘FTG’, inching closer to a debut full length album. Whilst every effort is underway to complete the full length by year end, Chaos Doctrine makes no promises as of yet.
FTG: Follow The Goat.
As the band name already suggests, lyrical themes by Chaos Doctrine are not for the spiritually faint of heart. ‘Follow The Goat’ challenges the stereotype of mainstream religions and encourages self-determination.
“Briefly, ‘Follow The Goat’ speaks to the masses of sheep we see in the world today, and throughout history, waiting for the next messiah to lead them. It starts with beautiful promises but inevitably each one is a bigger liar than the previous”. ~ Daniel Burger (vocals, Chaos Doctrine).
In context, Daniel speaks of the “Judas Goat”, the name given to the goats that were in earlier times used to lead sheep to slaughter. The sheep would follow the goat down the pathway, and when the goat reached the front, he would be able to get out, whereas the sheep would be stuck.
“The analogy is beautifully appropriate if you look at what happens in the world when people blindly follow ‘leaders'”. ~ Daniel Burger.
The Chaos Doctrine cometh.
The band aims to imprint its name boldly onto the scene once it is gig-ready, and aims to do so with a mammoth self-titled Chaos Doctrine album. With a former member, Ralph, recently re-joining on drums, work is underway to accomplish just that. Chaos Doctrine aims to hit hard in 2018.
We continue to watch this space with interest.
