Kaos Reign

Connecticut power trio Kaos Reign is here to assault your senses with their unique mix of death, doom, groove and thrash metal. It might not be obvious but this band started out with the influences from early Sepultura, Slayer, Death and Pantera. Kaos Reign was formed in the Winter of 2013 by Bill Klopfer (Guitars/Vocals) and Chris Anderson (Drums). They unleashed their debut full-length album, “Embrace the Fire” in 2014 which featured crushing guitars, gritty vocals, and thrash/groove drumming. Two years later in 2016, Kaos Reign returned with, “Screaming for Salvation” which consists of continuous well-structured metal compositions that show off the progression of their original sound.

Kaos Reign bounced back once again in 2018 and released their 3rd full-length album, “Epiphany”, which really upped the ante with a more positive, diverse, cathartic approach that remains one of those albums that is going to be hard to top. This album has everything from an all-out intricate thrasher to a glass shattering doom cliffhanger and everything in between. While this album moves Kaos Reign’s trademark heavy sound forward, its fresh material is more refined and dynamic.

Bill Klopfer’s vocals are versatile while his riffs are memorable and captivating. Bass player Matt Duggan rounds out the sound with the execution of his distinctive bass lines and Chris Anderson’s extreme drumming portrays confidence and style. Lyrics touch on themes of inner struggle, determination to overcome, and societal issues. The songs encourage us to proceed with caution and understand the chaos that consumes us.

As of June 24th, 2019, Kaos Reign released their 4th full length album "Alive at Practice 2018". This special album is a summary of everything this band has ever accomplished and more. 8 of the 9 tracks were re-recorded songs from the 1st 2 full length albums and as a band you can hear the progression in performance, recording, quality and it comes off as a Thrash/Groove Metal Classic that fans will keep around for years to come. Songs such as "Kill the Messenger", "Wretched" and the brand-new song "Bonescraper" are big stand-out highlights off the album. Stay tuned because this band is stronger than ever. Expect more Metal for years to come as the band has barely scratched the surface within its powerful songwriting.
