New York's own FULL BLOWN CHAOS will be releasing their new self-titled album on February 1st, 2011 (1. 2. 2011) via Ironclad Recordings. Click here (MySpace) to listen to ‘The Walking Dead’, here (Decibel Magazine) to hear ‘Doomageddon’ (“Put on those UCP pants you’ve been dying to try on but won’t wear in public, turn FBC up a few notches, and piss off your neighbors.”) and here (MetalSucks) for ‘Villains’ (“Once you’ve listened to this song and subsequently returned from the emergency room, you can pre-order it right here.”)
“What we’re really talking about is a hardy collection of metallic HC tunes that get the point across individually (think: lone gunman) and in a collective sense (think: gang war), thanks to some sharp arranging. But more than anything else, the new one from FULL BLOWN CHAOS is a tough bastard that won’t disappoint fans of the hard stuff. Don’t expect an album of metallic hardcore mastery. Do expect an exponential increase in road rage incidences and parole violations when the CD is played at maximum volume in certain environs.” Read the rest of Scott Alisoglu's review of the album right here (Blabbermouth).
FULL BLOWN CHAOS released their first metal/hardcore assault via self-titled EP in 2001. They built a following opening for groups such as SEPULTURA and HATEBREED. Jailhouse Records partnered with Stillborn Records to release band's second EP, ‘Prophet Of Hostility’ in 2003 which was followed by full-length ‘Wake The Demons’ (2004, Stillborn Records). In 2005 FULL BLOWN CHAOS are reported to play over 200 shows, scoring gigs alongside SLIPKNOT, CHIMAIRA and many notable others. Second album, ‘Within The Grasp Of Titans’, was released in 2006 (Stillborn Records) and ‘Heavy Lies The Crown’ - Ferret Music's debut crafted at Underground Sound with BIOHAZARD's Billy Graziadei, followed in 2007.
FULL BLOWN CHAOS features: Ray Mazzola on vocals, Mike Facci on guitar, Jeff Facci on drums, Mark Gumbrecht on guitar and Dustin Jennings on bass.
