Khaos Ordinance


      Khaos Ordinance, the metal band from the small town of Streator, IL got their name from the mind of band vocalist, Cory Angelico. "He had decided (on the name) years before forming, Just so happened we started a band and he threw the name out before our first practice and it stuck. The name is a double negative, chaos and order, can be taken as fear and order, Fear weapon, Or simply chaos law. Up for interpretation  whether political, psychological or military based" says the band.

      Cory and Jason Harlan (drums) had been in music projects together before. One day, Jason came across Marky Garcia jamming with a friend. Jason got on the drums and they had a small jam session together. Years later, they would cross paths agains and decided it wasn't a coincidence. Marky joined up on lead guitar. Jason basically told Cory he was the band's singer and in all the excitement of starting a band, Jason signed them up to play a Battle of the Bands. The only problem was that the band had no songs and no bassist.

      The band kicked it into high gear and they shot out 5 songs. Cory's long time friend and martial arts instructor, Mike Rideout, decided enough was enough and used his paycheck to buy a bass and an amp. By the time it was time for the battle, the entire band had learned the songs and not only played well, but tied the victory with rival bands.

      "All of our fans have said we have a unique and odd sound as a band, we take a different approach with each song, trying to incorporate our feelings as well as something new in each song making each one unique and very different from the others in some way, Each song has the potential to appeal to several different fans with different tastes in metal." They cite friends and family as big influences in their music and claim that they all kep eachother motivated. "As far as musical influences go, it is way too much to even get on paper, but we've been inspired by several of the local acts who have given us the criticisms and feedback we needed to get where we are so far."

      The band assures us that "the metal scene is well and alive in Streator" but that "there is a lack of metal bands recently."  "We have been trying to revive old bands and motivate people who wanna start projects in hopes to get Streator out of it's show slump. As far as venues go, it's hard to find one that is willing to support a metal act. We play in a town 20 minutes away and can pull in crowds of 80 to 100 on good nights, most from Streator. We are just at a loss for support and venues in town."

       "Explosive, powerful and energetic" is how the band describes their performances. "We like to be one with our crowd and go as far as walking into the crowd, moshing, and even allowing closer fans to sing. We like to make people feel like they are the reason we are there because that's simply the truth. We like to support other bands having played before and after us."
