October 29th saw the release of the debut Kha°s EP 'Rising', featuring Talon and Outloud vocalist Chandler Mogel. It's not just Mogel who is the name player here. The band is a sorta supergroup with Swiss musicians Mark Rossi (Tribal), N I c Angileri (Jorn) and Trevor Franklin (Elis) all name players in themselves. Kha°s is the culmination of music that couldn't be played in the personnel's respective groups, so is an outlet of sorts. A product of Internet collaboration and produced by German based engineer Rolf Munkes, the quartet fuse modern metal with some groove elements; the result is five tracks opening up the possibility of what Kha°s might achieve in the future.

The Songs
Some deep sea sonar effects precede the modern metal of 'Distress Signal'. This has a similarity to some of Lillian Axe's recent material. Mark Rossi propels the band along with some high-density guitar riffs and some brutal soloing when we hit the solo section. The power is toned down on the mid-tempo orchestral backed 'Hated'. It fuses a myriad of modern metal styles with a level of intensity which has this band taking a serious look at themselves. Again, Mogel sings up a storm. 'Reason To Die' is created on the base of acoustic guitar and some orchestral backing. It's a smooth delivery and easily the pick of the songs for me. 'Mind Violence' is a riff chugger, heavy in the same way that German metallers Rage were, the only difference being Mogel's clean and clear vocals. 'Perfect Future' sets the sound down an octave or so, it's a dense affair still with the pre-requisite melody and ebb/flow interchange between verse and chorus. The EP also contains two radio edited cuts for 'Reason To Edit' (an obvious choice), plus 'Perfect Future'.

In Summary
I think it's clear this outfit has a future, and with a world class vocalist in Chandler Mogel in tow, they should be able to build a full albums worth of material. The only issue I'm guessing is time availability working away from their other full-time commitments. Considering this project was born of the Internet, then anything is possible. Watch with interest.
