Kaos Rising creating solid groove, yet brutal as fuck

interview with Kaos Rising

Kaos Rising Chicago’s premier Hardcore Stomping Death Groove! Influences such as Machine head, Dying Fetus, Mudvayne, Slipknot. Kaos Rising is the next stage. Pure death vox covering pounding drums andd head-splitting bass guitars alternating with tasty and complex guitar licks covering a more complex rhythm. The effect is beyond description.
Kaos Rising is definitely a unique flavor of metal. This five piece formed in the end of 1999 has already blanketed Chicago and its surrounding area with destructive music, not to mention their large fan base worldwide via the internet. Featured in both magazine publications and internet spotlights Kaos Rising has caught the eye and ears of thousands of people in a relatively short amount of time.
Ambition, dedication, drive and foresight are some of the qualities possessed by the members who live to create this audible wrath. Anger motivated music. Focused on the future of the band they are constantly writing, promoting and performing to ensure their place in the industry.

Next.

You are around for almost 2 years. What did you achieve till now?
Well in the relativly short amount of time we have been together we have managed to achieve quite a bit. Our most recent achievement was getting a record deal with a good label on the west coast USA. But building a fan base takes a bit of work.. playing shows and shopping the shit around, it all takes dedication which pays off etc..

Why is internet important for your promotion?
Well it is a great way to connect to the entire world at once. People everywhere can check out the music and its free. It also serves function for advertising and selling merchandise and all that shit.

Basically its raw fucking anger and hate. No fantasy bullshit, real life shit.

Most everything, this is an endless subject. Constantly amazed by the lows that people reach.

Pop music

Any addiction that your surroundings don’t know? Wanna tell it?
No real addictions but music.

Hell no. But Matt is going to be a brain surgeon.

What will you be doing in five years from now on?
Hopefully we will have established a strong fan bas and we will be jammin heavier than ever, constantly growing and evolving the original concept.

Last rites?
Die fucking die.
