It begins

June 11, 2016


We write the 11th of June and today a new reaping begins. Blood will drench us and as we are soaked so you will be. We are in anticipation for two special nights.

More than five years passed since our last appearance on Austrian soil. In July we return to celebrate the old gods on the slope of Neudegg Alm. We are looking very much forward to this alpine rite.

Black Metal Escalation will also take place in Budapest on August 12th. Hungry devils will infest Inner Awakening Fest. As we heard tickets are going fast… Inner Awakening Fest will also be the date to reveal new material as well as Psalms that haven’t been part of our previous ceremonies.

The recordings for album number III are done for quite some time now. It’s been the most intense recording for Chaos Invocation so far. It really consumed and tested us and it still does. Among the upcoming rituals in Austria and Hungary we focus on one more period in July, were we will end the crafting aspect of album III and lay it into other hands. You shall be informed when these days passed.

With our appearance at Phantoms Of Pilsen Festival we celebrated our last live ceremony for a long time period as well as the last one together with Thomas on drums. Ever since he became part of our fraternity he proved to be a true Black Metal beast and a wild untamable spirit that carved his marks into our flesh and formed the shape of Chaos Invocation with his characteristics.

Maugre, hereby we announce our appearance at Inner Awakening Fest VIII on Friday 12th of August. We will share the stage together with our brethren in Thy Darkened Shade and our label conspirators Barshasketh. Hungary, we are eagerly looking forward to let you smell the wrath of Chaos Invocation, which is the wrath of escalation and destruction.


Inner Awakening Festival VIII


August 13, 2015

So it is August the 13th, the day Jon Nödtveidt decided to pass the borders and to return to the source that has called his name from beyond the boundless horizon. When we started to pre-record our upcoming album almost two years ago at „Turning Keys“, we decided to begin with a Dissection song to initiate the process. In times when words are weak and most music is soulless, Jon’s/ Dissection’s unrivalled legacy shall be a reminder for times, when words were more than empty phrases and music was more, than just a combination of notes.

T. – drums

A. – guitars, backing vocals

The world throws stones upon our path, but the larger these stones become, the stronger we hold on, after we pushed them away. This world was never a friend of ours, but no matter how hard it tries, it will never stop us. Our hunger roots beyond your borders and so it came that on April 30th we celebrated our eleventh anniversary. We have killed the ten!


Followers: The recordings of our third album were planned to start in April 2014, but due to health reasons, cancelled studio dates and other profane bullshit we could not start them. Once again we realized, that time is a precious commodity. Anyway, we do not grief about the year gone bye and as we already mentioned all these stones cannot hide the path we follow. Yet our focus is only set to the recordings of our new opus, that started a few days ago. Chaos Invocation never followed any trends and so you better expect a traditional Black Metal album that conjures any sign of a smile from your face and will leave you chained to the consuming dark of our rides.

Together with our brethren in „Thy Darkened Shade“ we have recorded material for a split Ep release that is dedicated to the workings of Set-Apep. We are currently working out the final details and will give you more information in due time.

For the glory of HIM

Furthermore: It’s been a while since we celebrated the last official ritual, but the greater is our anticipation for the upcoming dates of blood harvest:

29.08.2015 Hell Unleashed Part III – Zwickau DE

05.09.2015 Torn Your Ties Festival – Bobstadt DE

24.10.2015 Phantoms Of Pilsen – Pilsen CZE

These three dates will be something very special for us, since they mark the last appearances together with T. on drums. Ever since he joined our circle in 2009 he followed our path with passion and opened new gates with his characteristics and drumming.


You will forever be an important part of our fraternity and we are very thankful for the experiences that we share. Keep going…

Another search has begun!

The Harvest

Seeds And Sickel

January 6, 2015

The death of 2014 bears fruits already. After one year without any “official” live appearance, we want to let you know that we will visit the Czech Republic for the first time in October to rape “Phantoms Of Pilsen”. We are very much looking forward to this evening. Let us make it a sinister and magical one.

For more information about “Phantoms Of Pilsen” follow the link below.

All those who believe that 2014 was a quiet year for our circle, should herewith be reliably informed that it was not. We have never before created and sown so much within a year. The harvest will begin soon. You’ll see.

The Harvest

A Black Sabbath

August 3, 2014

In late April, we have recorded two tracks in order to celebrate the completion of ten years of Chaos Invocation or let us say the killing of the X. For those who guided and supported us we have uploaded now the first of those tracks, which is an homage to the early Black Sabbath. Still their first recordings have more energy and depth than 95% percent of all other releases in the rock and metal genre.

Chaos Invocation on this track:
T. – drums and percussion
A. – guitars and vocals
J. – rhythm guitar
S. – bass guitar

The track can be downloaded for few days starting today. After this period it will be removed to make room for track number two.

Information about an upcoming album and a split Ep will be announced in early 2015.

Until then: Children of the grave, let us celebrate a black sabbath…

To kill the ten…

Chaos Invocation - The Search Of Keys And Gates

Chaos Invocation – The Search Of Keys And Gates

So, ten years passed. On April 30th in the fourth year of this Millennium the fraternity of Chaos Invocation gathered for the first time and started its search of keys and gates. Therefore we will celebrate with witches and magicans, dead or alive, in our harem tonight. Since we all know that we have to kill the ten to path way for the 11 we won’t celebrate this anniversary too much, still recordings will be initiated at this very night. For those who guided and supported us in form of giving us a platform on which we could build our altar on, two songs that mean a lot to us shall manifest and will be shared as soon as possible.

May the fruits that we harvest in the future be as sweet as in the past and may the fetters that will be broken be as numerous as those which were broken. The search continues…

We, your ascendant

Lord Of Our Temple

March 9, 2014

House Of The HolyImpressions of the rehearsal that took place on 21st August 2013

To open the doors to our temple and to make you gain a first impression of the happenings inside our holy house, we have already released “Beyond Coming”. Yet, in order to celebrate the release of the vinyl version of “Black Mirror Hours”, we want to open the doors even further and grant you access to “Lord Of Our Temple”. Remember, that this song is part of a recorded rehearsal session.

Furthermore we want to let you know, that the pre-recordings of the third Chaos Invocation album are done since today. Nineteen songs that represent the strongest material that our circle has created so far, manifested since March 2012. The recordings shall start soon…

Flesh Upon The AltarImpressions of our altar

Beyond Coming

February 17, 2014

As we’ve already announced, we have recorded one of our rehearsals in preparation of last years “Incubate” festival. We promised to share parts of this recording with you. Well, better late than never. As a first example we have chosen “Beyond Coming” taken from “Black Mirror Hours”. It is a very raw mix and beyond a professional master, but it reflects the sound in our temple pretty good.

M. - Chaos InvocationM. in Arnhem (2010) where we already played “Beyond Coming”

While you listen to “Beyond Coming” you should know, that the altar is prepared in our hallowed halls. Tonight we continue to work on what will become the third Chaos Invocation album. Between blackmoon prayers, luciferian terror and baneful magic we have packed some new elements as well, that we found when we explored the depths of our hidden self further. We are very much looking forward to share this new stuff with you.


December 31, 2013

The year is coming to an end. Looking back, it was a good one. Nevertheless, we are not completely satisfied, since we could not hold that much “Black Mirror Rituals” in order to celebrate the release of our second album together with you. A longer crusade across this planet was not possible this time. Let us assure you that this will not apply to the next year.

We are working very focused on the upcoming album and the riddance of this beast in 2014 will be followed by at least an European crusade. Our fraternity is very much looking forward to the following thirteen phases of the moon.

Baptism By Fire

Chaos Invocation at “Baptism By Fire”, Essen, Turock

Although some time has passed already, we would like to say something relating to the concert together with “Cult Of Fire” in Essen. First of all we want to express our respect to all those who joined our whirl to sink deeper and deeper into madness although the PA system was partially completely shut down and our music was guided by a huge feedback. As some may have noticed, we certainly were not enthusiastic about several things as well. Among intros that were played at the wrong position, so that we had to rebuild our set, we also heard this feedback that sounded from one of the monitors while the others remained completely silent. Hearing nothing of our instruments made ​​this appearance to a true test of patience. Thanks and respect also to P. of Iron Bonehead, and S. who made a great job behind his mixing desk in Paris.

Until the next blood harvest…
