CIRCLE OF CHAOS sign to Massacre Records
CIRCLE OF CHAOS started out as a project of the band’s guitarist HG Hogström in 2008. As the project developed, he began searching for musicians to complete the band. The original line-up then included HG Hogström (guitars), Thomas Jonsson (bass), Staffan Lundholm (drums), Antonio da Silva (vocals) and Allan Lundholm (guitars).
Dan Swanö mastered CIRCLE OF CHAOS’ debut album “Black Oblivion” that was released in 2010. It was well received worldwide and the band played their first live shows in Sweden.
In 2011, the band played their first shows abroad, in Germany and Poland, and shared stages with bands like Gun Barrel, Embodying The End and Dawn Of Destiny.
At Germany’s Bremer Metal Festival in November 2011, Julian “Julle” Loaiza was introduced as new vocalist.
During spring 2012, CIRCLE OF CHAOS released the 5-track album “Twoheaded Serpent”, which was mixed and mastered by King Diamond’s Mike Wead. They went out on a headliner tour in Poland and the Czech Republic and also entered the Emergenza Festival and went all the way to the Scandinavian finals!
CIRCLE OF CHAOS have the ambition to always deliver energetic and captivating live shows.
Anders “Atte” Strokirk joined the band as new guitarist in January 2013.
The natural adjustments in the line-up have strengthened and shaped a crew ready to go “all in” and let you know what “Swedish Metal Chaos” is all about!
The band is currently working hard on their upcoming album “Crossing The Line” – with Germán Echiburu on drums – which is set to be released later this year via Massacre Records!
