1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

Endless Chaos was formed in 2011 by me and my brother Alex (ex-drummer) . Our songs are fuelled by the energy we get from our crowd. We focus on keeping our songs fast, technical and catchy.  

2.How would you describe the musical sound that is present on your ep?

 I would describe our sound as modern death and thrash metal.  I take everything I love about thrash, black and death metal and  incorporate those elements into our music. 

3.Can you tell us a little bit more about the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
The lyrical topics of endless chaos focuses on gore, perversion and horror.  

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Endless Chaos'?

The name itself has a couple meanings; First of all it refers to us on stage, we bring a high level of energy live when we play our songs. We love seeing our fans wrecking their necks. It also refers to the world we are living in surrounded by endless chaos; murders, bombings, and other acts of violence that affect peoples lives personally and physically. 

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?

We aim for every show to be our best but one show that will always standout for me was when opening for Skeletonwitch in 2013. We played the set as a 3 piece just vocals guitar and drums and the crowd went nuts. To best describe our performance is energetic, loud and in your face. 

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

We are planning touring in the near future. We have a huge show in April with Kataklysm and Aborted which will be our first time playing live as a 5 piece and in addition to that we will be appearing at some festivals. We hope to play as much as possible into the new year. 

7.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?
We are currently looking for a label to represent us.  We would love to take the chaos to the masses. 

8.Are the band members involved with any other musical projects?

All of us except myself are in other metal bands from Winnipeg peg. Jordan Dorge our singer also does vocals for black metal band Wilt. Our bassist and drummer Jeff Humarang and James Burton respectively play in metalcore band The Brugada Effect and our guitarist Mike Toews also plays bass in death metal band called Eyam. 

9.When can we expect a full length and what direction will it be in, music wise?

We are writing right now for our full length, we are looking to put about 9 - 10 songs on it. We are really focusing our writing toward riffs that are fun to play but still sound heavy and aggressive helping create our unique brand of blackened thrash and death metal. 


10.What are some bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

I draw influence and inspiration from tons of bands both old and new. I love a lot of the newer metal bands because they are setting the bar for how songs are written and performed. Lately I've been listening to a lot of the newer albums from 2013 like Skeletonwitch, Revocation, Carcass and Exhumed.

11.Do you have any non musical interests?

Outside of music I love riding on dirt trails on my bike and playing video games 

12.Before we wrap up this interview do you have any final words or thoughts?

Endless Chaos plans on going full speed with the release of our EP.  With a refreshed lineup of band members and new material being written for a full length release I can't wait to see how the future of Endless Chaos plays out.
