LP | "Ismit"
2006 | ASSEL RECORDS
KAAOS seems to be the most well-known finnish Hardcore, Punk band from the Early Eighties, they were formed in march 1980 in the city of Tampere. KAAOS were one of the first Hardcore, Punk bands in Finland to release a record, first band has been RATTUS. The style of the band can be described as raw, noisey and very pissed of Hardcore with buzzsaw Thrash riffs, reverby vocals, all over the place drumming and plodding bass, influences were drawn from UK and USA Hardcore bands. The band line up changed a lot, the only original member Jakke (at first guitarist and later vocalist) and center figure of the band died november 2007 (he apparently died of extreme alcohol abuse at the age of only 42), which meant the end of the band.
