Chad Murray enters the coven of the Space Witch

I have to admit that I’d never heard of Space Witch before seeing that they were playing a show with Chaos Theory; they’re very fucking good. I wouldn’t completely lock them into the doom metal bracket but, if you’ve not heard them, they’re definitely very, very bong-friendly.

Chaos Theory’s best gigs of 2014

One of the main reasons we promote live music is because seeing musicians play, feel, interact and bare their souls on stage can make or break your opinion of their creations. Here are each of our top bands that either we never knew existed or, more importantly, we did know existed but didn’t really love until we saw them perform live.
