Khaøs-Khaøs Rising EP

MarkRossi Records

Khaøs is a new project featuring vocalist Chandler Mogel (Outloud), guitarist Mark Rossi (Tribal), bassist Nic Angileri (Jorn) and drummer Trevor Franklin (Elis). This EP is the band's debut release and is conceived as a warm-up for a full-length release. The promo makes mention of the fact that this is a project that bridges the gap between America and Europe. A fair enough statement and a good starting point if you were to look to describe the style of Khaøs. Produced by Rolf Munkes at his Empire Studios in Germany, this 5-track release is a mixture of American hard rock and European melodic rock. It's a fairly well crafted, if not overly exciting, EP that offers little you haven't heard before, but it's strong enough material that one could overlook that fact. The songs are strong enough to stand on their own, but it's simply a case of not standing out that much. Maybe a full-length release will prove to be more adventurous and unique.
