Canadian NWOBHM worshipers TYRANTS OF CHAOS have premiered their new music video for “The Black Gap” with us today, and you can check it out now below. If you appreciate Saxon, Maiden, or Priest, you will love these guys.

A war history buff, vocalist Phil Sirias penned the lyrics for the track along with many others on their latest record. “The Black Gap” depicts a time in World War II history where German U-Boats were sinking large numbers of ships in the unprotected area of the North Atlantic called “The Black Gap”.

“It’s s another heavy hitting mosh worthy banger with a darker, sludgier tone that fans can really get in to. The lyrics were actually written over 10 years ago and the overall song covers topics such as corruption, greed, ignorance, and turning a blind” adds Sirias.

Since forming TYRANTS OF CHAOS, the band has released three albums: 2016’s debut and “The Calm Before the Stom,” 2019’s “Into Oblivion” and this years’ “Relentless Thirst for Power”, and the collective have played and headlined numerous shows and festivals in support of such material.

Their most recent, third full-length offering “Relentless Thirst For Power” is pure heavy metal from beginning to end with no filler. The album’s main lyricist and vocalist Phil Sirias is a war history nerd. Many of the band’s songs in their catalogue depict battles and times of war in world history. For this new record, Phil wrote about historical events along with touching on darker themes such as death and mental trauma. From the opening track “T.O.C.”, a straightforward, neck-wrecking heavy metal to “Indoctri-Nation”, which focuses on mental health issues to the “No Lives Matter” ballad that forces one to confront their mortality; and the shout-out track to all the NASCAR and racing fans out there “Lucky Dog” that is reminiscent of the 80s heavy metal.

“Relentless Thirst for Power” was produced by guitarist Arik Wagner, mixed and mastered by Johnny Gasparic at MCC Recording Studio Calgary and the album artwork was done by Pierre-Alain D. at 3mmi Design.

TYRANTS OF CHAOS was formed in Lethbridge, AB in 2013 for the love and passion of music by guitarist Curtiss Vaselenak and to fill a gap in the local scene, the band originally started as a fun hard rock and metal cover band. After some shuffling, he is now joined by guitarist Arik Wagner, bassist Sean Simpson, drummer Ryan Dyck, and vocalist Phil Sirias who complete the current lineup. With many years of experience between them, they bring professionalism and solid musicianship to both the stage and the studio. Their live show is something every metal-head needs to experience. Sentinel Daily described them as “a sound that could rattle the very bowels of hell. Which is a pretty good noise to make!… If traditional, thrash-tinged heavy metal is your thing, you should probably get to know TYRANTS OF CHAOS pretty soon! ”
