South Africa's supreme Industrial Machine Chaos Doctrine is back with a sweltering rendition of the Depeche Mode classic ‘Enjoy The Silence’ to treat your membranes (whilst you wait just a little longer for their sophomore album to be released). What better band to pay tribute to than the iconic English Electronic Pioneers who had such a profound impact on Industrial (and all genres globally since inception in 1980).

Listen to the lyric video below

Spawned in their renowned domain (Gemini AD Studios), Chaos Doctrine has taken this epic track and solidly stamped their unique brand of Industrial Thrash onto this classic, duly delivering an intense interpretation exclusively available for free on Bandcamp. The Lyric Video pays supplementary homage to the iconic imagery that saw ‘Enjoy The Silence’ and ‘Violator’ propels the band into international stardom in 1990.

Words like violence

Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can't you understand?
Oh, my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm


Chaos Doctrine came down on the metal world like the hammer of Thor in February this year with a shredding track called 'Black Friday Bedlam' featuring Swedish Metal Legend Jörgen Sandström on vocals (Entombed, Grave, Torture Division, Krux, The Project Hate). If you watched the Lyric Video, you would have caught a peek at the title and artwork of the band’s much anticipated second album ‘And In The Beginning… They Lied’, set for release on 25 June 2021. More information on this upcoming release will be made available on the Chaos Doctrine Socials in the coming weeks!


Chaos Doctrine brings a unique and modern metal assault by blending old school thrash and death with aggressive industrial metal. Originally formed in 2011 in Johannesburg, South Africa by vocalist Dr D (Bedlam, Malachi, DedX), the band line up is completed by veteran guitarist and band producer Alec Surridge (Sacraphyx, The Warinsane), bass guitarist, backing vocalist and band visual artist Phil Carstens (DedX), and explosive drummer Rory Townes (Forsaking Fate).

For its members, Chaos Doctrine is more than a band: it is a comprehensive sensory experience and a brand. Everything the band produces conveys this – the band name itself, their aggressive sonic releases, explosive live shows, dystopic visual products, and stabbing lyrical content. Chaos Doctrine explores the shadow of the human condition; hatred, brutality, decay. Their approach is unrelenting, fuelled by rage and void of apology.

This is aggression. This is Chaos Doctrine!
