Finnish metal band Koitos’ new single observes the nature of chaos

Author Benedetta Baldin - 18.2.2024

Finnish metal band Koitos releases new single “Kaaostila” from their upcoming debut album. Musically, “Kaaostila” is more raw and heavier than its predecessor. For the more discerning, you can even hear hints of black metal.

“Humans are creative on building emotional voids around themselves and others, creating confusion, chaos, isolation and anxiety. In those voids and insecurity, in turn, lies its own breeding ground for false ideas and also the potential for the wider dissemination of violent and distorted ideology. And in humanity, unfortunately, there is always someone who can exploit and fill this vacuum. This song deals with this situation through the observations of an individual from the outside”, describes vocalist Matti Hiitti.

In addition to the songwriting and lyrics, the single was recorded and produced entirely by the band. The lyric video was made by bassist Aaro Pelttari based on the album cover artwork by Jussi Pohjanen. The song was mixed and mastered by Rami Nykänen, whose portfolio includes bands like One Morning Left and Balance Breach.
