I would recommend this album to anyone, it is so good.


Auckland band Like A Storm was born when musician brothers Chris, Kent and Matt Brooks first jammed together. Growing up playing in separate bands, the combined chemistry was apparent in an instant. “We just felt this amazing musical connection,” remembers guitarist Matt Brooks, “We knew that we had to start a band together.”

Since their debut album, The End of the Beginning, in 2009, Like A Storm have created a compelling musical catalogue and earned the reputation as one of rock's hardest working bands. Five years of relentless touring has seen them share American stages with rock giants Creed, Korn, Alter Bridge, Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown and many others. As a result, the band of Kiwi brothers has developed one of the most loyal fan bases in the country, and are now a headline act in their own right.

Chaos Theory: Part 1 was initially intended to be recorded in a typical US studio, but due to their insane touring schedule, the band decided to instead make the record while out on the road. As a result, Like A Storm's second album was recorded in backstage rooms and hotels all across the US. “Basically we didn't sleep for two months straight,” laughs singer Chris Brooks, “After every show we would wheel two carts full of recording equipment into our hotel rooms… Asking the staff to put us as far away from the other guests as possible.”

Whilst initially proving to be something of a logistical nightmare, recording an album while out on a nationwide US tour turned out to be hugely positive for the band. “It was actually a really awesome way to make a record,” says Matt, “Walking offstage every night and going straight into making our new album really enabled us to capture all the energy of our live show.” Recording outside of the constraints of the regular studio environment also gave Like A Storm the freedom to realize their ambitious vision – an album where hard rock contrasts haunting acoustics, and progressive metal collides with the primal tones of the didgeridoo – all while retaining the powerful, meaningful lyrics that the band are known for. Chaos Theory: Part 1, produced by the multi-instrumentalist Brooks brothers, has been widely regarded as a huge step forward for the band. The record has already yielded two successful singles – ‘Never Surrender’ (voted “Song of the Year” by Mid-Atlantic Rock Review), and their latest hard rock anthem ‘Love the Way You Hate Me’.
