studio inferno 2010
(January 6th, 2010)
As some of you might know, the recording process of our forthcoming album has begun. If you want to receive totally irrelevant messages from the studio, please, join our Facebook community.
Here's a small video clip from the first two days.
Of black blood and venom,
The Arschmeisters themselves
x-mas single in stores
(December 13th, 2009)
Ho-ho-ho. Satan Klaus ja tuomion tontut,
the first and possibly the last Chaosweaver song sung in Finnish, has
been released as a digital single this week. The track was recorded
late last year, and it was re-mixed and re-mastered a short while ago
by the almighty Jack Tyger, our beloved drumster.
Check it out at MySpace
and download it from iTunes! The recording of our second album begins
next week. Industrialized spook opera heading your way in 2010.
I've seen the deepest darkness and wrestled with Gods,
Max & Elves of fucking doom
a new album in making
(October 16th, 2009)
A lot of people have been asking about our forthcoming album, so here comes the semi-official update on the current situation. We've written tons of material, wickedest of which will make it on the record. Jack, Albert and I have been sweating in the studio whole week, working on the arrangements and recording some new riffs.
It's impossible to say at this point, what the end result will sound like, but the songs are VERY diverse, massive, beautiful and evil. If you've heard "Puppetmaster of Pandemonium", you'll probably be surprised - in a good way.
We've streched the opposites even further, and introduced plethora of new levels and elements in our dark craft. The melodies have grown fairer, the riffs stronger, the orchestrations bigger, and the mood even more bizarre but at the same time catchier. Old Man's Child meets The Kovenant meets Swallow the Sun meets Angelo Badalamenti in a David Lynch movie.
Tune in for more updates.

live evidence exposed
(September 27th, 2009)
Greetings from the somber moors and gray meadows of the north. Nights are growing longer, days darker. As the grand master of horror once wrote: "That is not dead which can eternal lie. And with strange aeons even death may die."
And stranger have our days become. Chaosweaver played its second ever live show on August 22nd, 2009 at Nosturi, Helsinki, with Samael and Black Sun Aeon. The incantation of the wicked was captured on tape, happy suffering.

Chaosweaver will be playing a live show with the Swiss metal gods Samael on August 22th at Nosturi, Helsinki. Tickets will come on sale on Wednesday - get yours asap from Lippupalvelu or Tiketti. There are no age limits, so all you krazy fukkers can witness the gathering of the wicked.
Death is certain. Life is not.
friday the 13th
- a retrospective of the bizarre
(March 1st, 2009)
So it is done. The Ancient God's of Chaos guided our flesh and spirit, as Chaosweaver rose on stage for the very first time in human existence. Summoning of the uncanny took place in front of two thousand mortals at the Finnish Metal Expo, Helsinki.

journey back in time for a while. We've gotten offers to play live a number of
times, but have turned them all down. The reason for that is three-fold:
1.) Each of us live in different cities, so it is difficult to rehearse.
2.) Our music is so pompous and grandioso, that it requires a large audience and masses of visualization.
3.) The time and the place had to be right.
better time to spread the Pandemonium than at the biggest metal event of its
kind in Finland
on Friday the 13th? Unfortunately Ezzymania 2000 and Thab could not
be with us to celebrate this historical occasion. Ezzymania had even a bigger reason
to rejoice, because his superseed was planted about nine months ago…
We are very, very sorry to announce that Thab Picard is no longer a member of Chaosweaver due to his difficult health condition. We wish him nothing but the best in all his future endeavours. The decision was made in good terms and mutual understanding. May your days be of delight, brother.
But on with the show. When we were offered the gig, we knew that it would be a long and hard journey from the rehearsal place to the stage. First of all, Chaosweaver is not a band that usually jams out and practises. The original plan was to compose the most wicked and bizarre records imaginable, and leave the public performances to other bands. But as Puppetmaster of Pandemonium was named the Album of the Year in several places and a large number of people kept bugging us to step up on the stage, we decided not do "the Bathory thing" after all. Chaosweaver will do ONLY THE NOTEWORTHY SHOWS, nothing more, nothing less.
Ezzymania could not make it to the show, we had to find a substitute for him.
Janne Niiranen of Shade Empire fame was an obvious choice, because we've all
known him for years, he's an awesome guy and a guitar wizard of alien talent.

13th, day of reckoning. We had been arranging a bunch of extra stuff
for the show, but none of us wanted to stress about that too much. If it works
out, it works out. If it doesn't, fuck it, we'll rock anyway. The whole day went
like on fast forward. It was cool to meet up with the guys, because we don't
see each other that much. It's usually just me, Albert and Jack chilling out at
Oitti Zero Nexus. Now the "whole gang" was present juiced up with a few guest
stars: Tommi "Rotten" Virranta (Discard, Survivors Zero, ex-Deathchain), Jules
Näveri (Profane Omen, Enemy of the Sun) and Pusa of Vanguard, who also acted as
our guitar tech.
We rose up on the stage at 11 pm with the disturbing sounds of Enter the Realm of the Doppelgänger, an intro me and Jack wrote for the second album, blasted at full volume. The first thing I noticed as I walked to plug in my bass, was the sheer amount of people in the audience. Glad to see the fellowship of pandemonium is of interest to so many individuals.
Hans-Peter Weckman, a talented graphic artist, had prepared background videos for each of the songs, which were projected onto a huge screen behind Jack's drum set, which was awesome.

To cut things short, here's the set list for the night:
- Enter the Realm of the Doppelgänger (intro)
- Flaming Rain (featuring Tommi "Rotten" Virranta)
- Buried in a Swamp
- Locked in a Coffin
- Cult of Joy
- Son of the Moon (featuring Jules Näveri and Pusa)

chaosweaver in studio - again!
(September 2nd, 2008)
Ave, legions of pandemonium. More than a moonspin has passed since the last update, but the notorious gang of mischief's, collectively known as Chaosweaver, has some interesting news to unleash upon you: the band is currently in studio composing and demoing new material for the upcoming second album, scheduled to be released in 2009. And enjoying a few Kukko Pils beers, of course.
The yet to be titled sonic entity will follow one very disturbing but intriguing storyline, which picks up where the last song on Puppetmaster of Pandemonium, Son of the Moon, left off. I won't go into details at this point, but check out the lyrics of the song, if you want to plunge deeper to the white void that inevitably awaits!
Now what can I say about the musical direction..? The album will be ambidextrous and symphonic as fuck. Beautiful melodies coalesce with scary-ass Draculean orchestrations, beats pound your heart like arrhytmia and razor sharp riffs slash your skin off. A monolith symphony of the bizarre.
Well, enough gibberish, we've got a spook opera to write.
Ars longa, vita brevis,
Max & Chaosweaver

"Your album is fucking amazing, I love it, it's just the type of stuff I'm into! VERY FUCKING COOL!!!!".

Chaosweaver covers army of lovers with heta hyttinen!
(July 8th, 2008)
Dear earthlings and dwellers of the Second Sun,
we promised a surprise for you, didn't we? Well, here we go: the first ever cover track by Chaosweaver is recorded, mixed and mastered. It was obvious from the very beginning that if we ever record a song composed by another artist, the track in question must match up to Chaosweaver's standards both musically and lyrically.
Crucified by Army of Lovers was the perfect choise. Period.
If the first verse starts with a line like "I've seen the deepest darkness and wrestled with Gods" and the track gushes with pompous orchestrations, how can you go wrong? The original version of Crucified is a fucking masterpiece, but we thought we'd spice it up with a few pandemonic flavors. Wanna snatch a taste? Check out a sample at www.myspace.com/chaosweaverband.
Even though I did do some shemale vocals on a couple of tracks on Puppetmaster of Pandemonium, we wanted to use a genuine feminine voice this time... I phoned up a friend of mine, famous Finnish journalist and presenter Heta Hyttinen. Gladly she agreed to help us out on the chorus, and did a terriffic job! Thanks to Kalmos of Ajattara for the tip, we didn't know Heta's such a professional singer.
Here's the good part: the first pressing of Puppetmaster of Pandemonium is nearly sold out (collectors: get yours asap!), and Crucified is going to be the bonus track on the second print! The album will be released in Finland, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia on July 30th. If you don't want to buy the whole album, you can purchase the track from download shops worldwide on the very same day.
We've got tons of other news on the way, so stay tuned!

Miasma visited the chaosweaver session
Mikko Luntiala, a journalist from the Finnish metal mag Miasma, visited Chaosweaver's studio session late last month. Read about the recording of Jules Näveri's guest vocals and check out the pics from Miasma's site. Sorry, the text is in Finnish only, but here's a translated teaser for you:
Chaosweaver changes singer!
(February 13, 2008)
Symphonic dark metallers Chaosweaver have recruited a new vocalist during the recording session of their yet to be titled debut album. A dark messiah Cypher Commander (see photos below) will handle the chanting duties from now on, as the former singer-guitarist Kole focuses on guitar playing exclusively.
– Cypher Commander is one of the best extreme metal vocalists out there, so handing him the mic was an easy task. Now I can fully concentrate on the things I do best, states Chaosweaver's riff maestro Kole.
CHAOSWEAVER 2008: Kole, Thab Picard, Ezzymania 2000, Cypher Commander, Albert von Fleischer, Max Power & Jack Tyger (Pic by Jarmo Katila)
In addition to the renewed vocalist department, the album will feature an impressive mix of guest stars. Rotten, the former frontman of the Finnish deathrash gods Deathchain, growled his ass off on five tracks, making the Chaosweaver album his first studio appearance in three years. His latest work, Deathchain's Deathrash Assault (2005), skyrocketed into the Official Finnish Album chart at # 18.
The multitalented Jules Näveri of Profane Omen and Enemy of the Sun fame nailed the ending track of the forthcoming Chaosweaver effort. There might be a couple more visitors to come – we'll keep you informed. You can read more about the recording process in our updated studio diary. Check out the pics too!
The release date of the album will be postponed to a later date, we're guessing late April or early May.
