Twenty years after our inception, on August 12, 2015, Chronicles of Chaos has ceased publication. It is with a heavy heart that we've come to this decision, but the timing seemed right given the changing face of metal journalism. Chronicles of Chaos was always dedicated to thoughtful, long form articles that put more emphasis on quality and insight than on scooping everyone else. We have never had any intention of changing our modus operandi despite the waning interest in reading about music when listening to said music is just a Google search away. We're ending this chapter of our lives with editorials from Gino and Pedro along with opinion articles by current and former writers, reflecting on their relationship with Chronicles of Chaos and its relevance throughout the years. Plans are in place for Chronicles of Chaos to remain online as an archive, in perpetuity, providing free access to over 7,500 articles. Also we'll be leaving open one last email address by which you can contact us, for any reason, going forward. We'd love to hear from you at: coc@chroniclesofchaos.com
