Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Infected Chaos was formed mid 2013 from the remnants of Chaosreign. As the stringfraction consisting of Matt (git), Martin (git) and Flo (bass) remained, the line-up was completed by drummer Christoph who also plays in Austrian Thrash Metal band Preterior and vocalist Christian, former Breßack. We´re from Southern Germany and Northern Austria.
We recorded our debut the Wake of Ares from summer 2013 until early 2014 all by ourselves while mixing and mastering was done by Christoph Brandes in renowned Iguana Studios who delivered a fantastic job.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
It´s just classical, crushing death metal with catchy leads and no technical ballast. Straight to your face! The sound quality is naturally but clear. Outstanding work by Christoph. Thanks once more for that!
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
Because it´s good, handmade, honest and passionate music that´s best heard screaming loud and to bang your head to it, demolish your appartment and have a good time
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
The Wake of Ares which will be released on March 27th is our first recording so far. It´s a full length album with twelve songs on it and lasts over 45 minutes. Until now we got just one review by “TheTruebringerOfDeath” Zine and received and 8/10 for it what makes us very proud. But we hope there´s more to come.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
As it´s very hard to play shows here because the scene is very small I definitely have to mention our second gig we played in Aalen (Ger) at Rock It Club. We opened for legendary Possessed! What a fucking honour!!! Our second gig and that´s with some of the godfather´s of Death Metal!!! It was overwhelming although the audience could have been bigger. But Mille (owner of Rock It) treated us great and the guys of Possessed were also very cool!
We don´t think a lot when we go on stage. Just sinking into the music and letting your inner beast take possession of yourself. I would describe us as very energetic. Just come to our shows and judge by yourself.
Upcoming shows are in Ehrwald (A) along with two local bands just the day the album will be released and we will devastate the Aaargh!-Festival in Leutkirch (GER) which will occur from June 11th to 13th . But we´re always hungry for more, so bookers, feel free to contact us!
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
We´re hungry and we always go to our own physical limits on stage! And we are a hardworking, very organized band where music and a satisfied audience is way more important than drinking.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
At the moment we´re busy writing new songs for our next album which we hopefully can release somewhen in summer 2016. And we are very happy to have found a strong partner with MetalMusic Austria which will distribute our album and helps us to reach the next level. And we´re very keen on playing more and bigger shows. We think “The Wake Of Ares” will pave the way for that.
Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
The Album will be released via MetalMusic Austria. On their homepage you can order the CD or you can also simply contact us via Facebook. There will also be a digital download which is handled by Plastichead. Maybe it will also appear on vinyl later but at this point I can´t tell you more about that, sorry.
Nevertheless the best option would be to come to one of our shows, have some beers with us and get your physical copy there.
We can also be found on Soundcloud and Youtube, where our guitarist Martin placed a great lyricvideo for “Wolves in thy Pantheon” that was designed completely by himself.
