Kaos Krew

Ripping Hard Rock From Finland

Kaos Krew is a trio of hard rockers from Finland who recently released Under Destruction, a ripping collection of mostly instrumental, heavy hard rockers. Two guitarists ensure the six-string fury never lets up - Goran Fellman (lead guitars) and Uffe Skog (guitars, keyboards) - while bassist Tomas Ost holds down the low end over the programmed grooves (which are much higher quality than you might imagine). This album features an unusual blend of contemporary guitar playing melded with nu millennial soundscapes - alternating searing metal/rock soloing with lyrical synth beds and surreal rhythms. Under Destruction is the group's first record together as a trio; they mentioned their hope to add more vocal tunes in the future, so we got one question - why?!? Kaos Krew were originally profiled in the August-September, 2005 edition of The Undiscovered.

alb Guitarist Goran Fellman played with the band Stormwing in the '90s - typical melodic rock - while guitarist Uffe Skog lists his influences as Jeff Beck and Joe Satriani, as well as bands such as Clawfinger and Rammstein. Bassist Tomas Ost played with the group Wild Force. Kaos Krew plans to continue to write music, putting more effort into writing lyrics (see 'why' question above). Their album, Under Destruction, was well received in Finland, and even was voted CD of the week at Radio X3M, receiving airtime. Some European record companies have shown interest in Kaos Krew, but they have not signed any contracts to this point.

Kaos Krew are currently in the studio, recording new songs for their next CD.

Dan Brown Jr.

Instrumental Rocker Finds Niche

No, not "The Da Vinci Code's" Dan Brown - this Brown is an instrumental rock guitarist from the St. Louis area who has released his debut CD, entitled The Awakening. Packed with nine driving tracks geared towards the Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson and Gary Hoey enthusiast, Brown lets it rip, peppering his original melodies with high-octane soloing based on tight, propulsive musical chops honed in the many groups he has been a part of. Ballad tempo tracks such as "Never Alone?" show off his well-structured and tasteful side, flowing from the ethereal to the heavy with seamless efficiency. Interludes such as "Morning After Her" allow the album to breathe with a smattering of acoustic shimmer. Brown has an excellent first release here, which also features Anthony Kaid (drums). Dan Brown Jr. was originally profiled in the August-September, 2005 edition of The Undiscovered.

pic Dan, a 22-year-old musician, captivated audiences all across the country as lead guitarist of the national touring act Mostly Crue, and was a member of other established acts such as Rock Bottom and Surreal Zeal.
