Chaotic Beauty is the third album by Finnish symphonic death metal band Eternal Tears Of Sorrow.[1] It was their first album without the original three founding members of the band (guitarist Olli-Pekka Törrö had left the band in early 1999) and the first EToS album with a five-member line-up. It is also the second EToS album with no pre-programmed drums.

The guest vocalist on the album was Kimberly Goss of Sinergy, and on the Japanese Bonus CD, Heli Luokkala. The song "Black Tears" is a cover, originally written by Dan Swanö for his band Edge of Sanity.

This album continues the band's tradition to record albums with Ahti Kortelainen at Tico-Tico Studio in Kemi, Finland. However, this is the first EToS album that Mikko Karmila mixed; before Chaotic Beauty all albums were also mixed by Ahti Kortelainen.
