Founded: January 2018
Originated From: Lausanne, Switzerland
Discography: First Step To Hell (Album, 2018), Live In Hell: Les Docks Lausanne 2019 (Album 2019), Second Life (Album, 2020), First Step To Hell (single, 2019), Don’t Waste Your Time (Single, 2019) & Into My Split (Single, 2020)
How would you describe your music?
Our first album sounds between heavy and metalcore style with female vocals. With our new album and now CK Smile on vocals, we are close to bands like Korn, Slipknot and Trivium.
What is your musical creative process like?
Loïc writes the main musical part with CK. CK and Valery add the lyrics and together we finish all the small arrangements.
How did the band form?
Valery wrote a message to Loïc and asked him if he was interested in creating a new band. We asked Greg and CK to join us. That was ok for Greg but CK was so busy and joined us after our USA tour in 2019.
How did you come up with your band name?
Around a good meal. We were looking for a new name corresponding to our image and finally Chaoseum comes to us, which is the museum of chaos.
Have you performed live much and what was your favourite gig to play at?
Our best gig was in Lausanne, Switzerland. We also recorded this concert for a live album. The ambiance and the sound were really great. But we also keep some really good memories from our Russian tour with Tarja. All the band is great, and we met some incredible people.
What is the best thing about being in a band?
Without hesitation is playing on stage – that’s our first motivation.
What’s the biggest problem you’ve had to overcome so far as a musician(s)?
Of course, we use a lot of technology, which can cause a little bit of anxiety just before a show. As an example, we played in Lyon and that was impossible to change my guitar sounds, it was very frustrating.
What plans have you got coming up this year?
We recently released an acoustic version of Stick Under My Skin. We’re making some music videos and also some videos about us and our life during this pandemic period. We also plan to make some drum and guitar playthroughs.
What is your ultimate dream as a band?
For Valery, being on tour with Iron Maiden. But for the band, the best thing would be a world tour with Korn.
