I’ve always been a fan of Full Blown Chaos. The hardcore metal band from Queens destroyed shit on Ozzfest in 2006 and the band’s released a bunch of solid records. To top it all off, frontman Ray Mazzola has to be one of the coolest dudes I’ve ever met. So I am a big supporter of Full Blown Chaos.
So you can imagine my excitement this morning to learn that Full Blown Chaos has inked a new record deal with Ironclad Recordings, the label owned by Unearth’s Trevor Phipps. The band is in the studio right now, working on the follow-up to 2007’s Heavy Lies the Crown, which should be out in January.
“We have reinforced our style of writing with a more prevalent sound while keeping to our roots of audible mayhem,” vocalist Ray Mazzola says of the band’s forthcoming material. “We are a five-piece now so we are capable of doing so much more.”
Full Blown Chaos plan on touring for much of 2011.
“Touring as much as we have in the past is an absolute necessity in this era of music and genre,” Mazzola added. “You need to be in everyones face and make them remember you wether they like it or not. There are so many heavy bands out there its hard to distinguish ones self by music alone sometimes. Our band and music stands out because you can feel and hear the struggle and time we have invested. That alone will set us apart from the impetuous herd of todays groups.”
