According to a posting on Ironclad Recordings Myspace Page, the label has signed one of NYC’s finest, Full Blown Chaos. This band absolutely crushes, and pairing up with the label run by Unearth vocalist Trevor Phipps seems like a great fit. Here is what Ironclad had to say, along with a little video I put together featuring some of my photography.
Ironclad Recordings is proud to announce the addition of heavy hardcore powerhouse Full Blown Chaos from Queens, New York to the roster. The band is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on their follow up to 2007′s bone-crushing “Heavy Lies the Crown” (Ferret Music). The as of yet to be titled album will likely be released sometime in January 2011.
“We have reinforced our style of writing with a more prevalent sound while keeping to our roots of audible mayhem.”, vocalist Ray Mazzola said of the bands new material. ”We are a 5 piece now so we are capable of doing so much more.”
Over the years FBC have scoured the World playing over 1000 shows pummeling crowds with their breakdown laden heavy hardcore. Mazzola and company have appeared on such North American tours as Ozzfest, Sounds of the Underground, the Jagermeister tour, countless club tours and five appearances at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival. FBC have also toured overseas more than a half dozen times playing European Summer festivals, the Persistence Tour and a handful of club tours.
Touring non-stop has been a creed that Full Blown Chaos deems necessary, “Touring as much as we have in the past is an absolute necessity in this era of music and genre,” Mazzola added. ”You need to be in everyones face and make them remember you wether they like it or not. There are so many heavy bands out there its hard to distinguish ones self by music alone sometimes. Our band and music stands out because you can feel and hear the struggle and time we have invested. That alone will set us apart from the impetuous herd of todays groups.”
