Khaøs is based on the idea that music should not be so easily defined, nor its integrity compromised. The name is derived from—quite obviously—chaos, the mechanism of tearing down preconceived notions, clearing a path for new realms of creative endeavors. The cause came together internationally, breaking down boundaries and borders. Music without rules and without obstacles is the basis for creative motion and innovation. Out of that, Khaøs was born.
The creative project has crossed continents, forming a collaborative effort in both Europe and North America. Aside from the lyrics and tone, the project’s unifying element is one of hard rock expression, which defies definition with every song. Rolling rhythms, flowing guitar and powerful vocals combine to create a heavy yet melodic metal sound.
Although its members’ common denominator is rock and metal, each individual has performed and studied a wide variety of genres. Four members comprise Khaøs, with Chandler Mogel on vocals, Mark Rossi on guitar, N I c Angileri on bass and Trevor Franklin on drums. The band was connected and its musical endeavors combined through the efforts of producer Rolf Munkes at Empire Studios in Germany.
Khaøs is born out of destruction, breaking boundaries to fill a void in musical production. The hard rock project has taken form through the debut EP “Khaøs Rising”, which was released in fall of 2012 to high critical acclaim. However, this was just the beginning. KHAØS has announced its debut album “Risen” that has been released on October 20th via Plastic Head Distribution / MRR Records.
