Review

Kaos is one of the bands that prove that metal was in every part of the world. Their homeland was Newfoundland, a remote island in eastern Canada and despite their isolation they did many live gigs back in the 80s. With a very good female vocalist and good musicians they remind us a more melodic version of Malteze or a heavier version of Meghan if you prefer. The highlight is the amazing "March of the Gremlins" which is I think one of the best US metal instrumentals ever composed with the rest of songs being quite good although less heavier. In 1987, they released a 6-songer demo which is better than the record however it's very hard to find it. Imagine that even the band doesn't have it!!
