Since their formation, CHIODOS have been focused on creating something different while letting their diverse influences shine through. Their resulting debut full length is only definable as a melting pot of electronic beats behind piano, metal guitar riffs and poppy melodic vocal lines that leave you humming. Heavy and harsh at one moment, beautiful and serene the next, seemingly as a rule staying away from 'verse-chorus-verse' song writing. Their debut EP was a raw effort of oddly pieced musical ideas and bedroom recordings, however it did not go unnoticed. Fans from their home state of Michigan and beyond buzzed about the release, along with praise of the band's explosive live performances. Leading to what would eventually become 7 full U.S. tours, thousands of CDs sold and countless enthusiastic fans. Influenced by SAVES THE DAY, QUEEN, and AT THE DRIVE IN, CHIODOS create a sound both intense and versatile as they cross musical boundaries in every song.
