CHAOSEUM – interview
Formed in 2018 in Lausanne, Switzerland, CHAOSEUM is a Nu-metal/metalcore act who already released their 4th album in November 2022 and their hard work and dedication has seen them performing live with big names and we’re sure there’s lots of awesome adventures to come for the talented musicians. Below there’s a quick chat in which they talk about the music, influences and plans for the future
Introduce your band, and describe your latest release:
– We are the group “Chaoseum” and we come from Switzerland. Our latest album “The Third Eye” was released on November 4, 2022. This album is the most successful of our discography I think. We managed to mix a lot of different styles of music and we dared a lot more things than in the previous albums
What’s the hardest part about being a band in this day and age?
– I think the hardest thing is to diversify among all the bands and make songs that stick in your head.
When did you realise that your project had the potential to be much more than just a fun idea?
– I think it was when our song “Smile Again” exceeded 1M views on Youtube in 1 week and also when people sing our songs during our concerts
Tell us about your latest release, why should we check it out?
– This album is very eclectic with a lot of different sounds and it can appeal to a very wide audience.
How does a song typically come together for you?
– It can take 1 month or 2 days. It all depends on my state of mind. I compose the draft of the song and then we make the arrangements with the band. Some songs have no change during the arrangements and sometimes it changes totally. It’s a team work and I’m very proud to work with my 3 brothers from Chaoseum.
How would you describe your sound to an unfamiliar reader?
– It’s a mix between Nu Metal and Indus Metal. All this with various influences like heavy metal or pop.
What do you want listeners to take away from listening to your band?
– That the Swiss know how to make metal and not only watches and chocolate
Where would you really like to tour that you haven’t done so yet, and why?
– In Japan. The audience is incredible and the food is incredible
How would you say that the sound of your band has progressed over the years?
– We have managed to adapt to everything that is being done now. Our first album was more metalcore / heavy metal. Now we try to reach a wider audience by mixing different styles. Our style is very diverse now but we try to revive Nu Metal
How excited are you for the rest of 2022, and what can fans expect from you?
– We have a little surprise that will be available at the end of the year. We are also working on our next tour for 2023.
Thank you for the interview.
