Calm of Chaos is a band from Kent, Ohio. Formally known as A Dying Light, the band was founded by lead vocalist/lyricist, James Christian. The band is completed with Kayla Turk on lead guitar and backup vocals, Doug Callahan on Bass, and Devin Mays on Rhythm Guitar. COC is still searching for a drummer. For their early demos, Kayla Turk recorded drum tracks.

The style of the band is debatable, but most people agree that it sucks. Christian's vocals are a cheap imitation of Avenged Sevenfold's lead singer M. Shadow's style. Mixing screamed vocals and cleaned vocals is an old, worn out vocal style, that has been used over and over again. It's called Metalcore. But to perform Metalcore correctly, or fluently, you must have a vocalist who can actually sing. Christian's screams are weak and repetitive, and his clean vocals are wretched. They are whiny, and couldn't hold a note to save his life. Turk's lead guitar work is impressive, along with her fill-in drums on the early demos. Mays' guitar work is average at best. Callahan has yet to be heard as the newly joined bass player. He joined in April of 2009, replacing the former bass player who was expelled from COC in April of 2009. Callahan comes from the death metal band Torment of Sin. TOS is nothing but a bunch of potheads who are baked all the time and aren't good enough to meet Callahan's bass standards.

Calm of Chaos is a joke of a band and should not be taken seriously or respected. This band will never go anywhere with James Christian as their vocalist. COC is not metal whatsoever. They are what is wrong with metal. Bands trying to be carbon copies of other bands. Hint, hint: A7X.

Long live true metal
I went to the Calm of Chaos show last night. It fucking sucked so bad. The singer can't sing worth a shit.

Calm Of Chaos

A Band from Kent, Ohio formed in 2009. Brought together by Vocalist/Lyricist/Mixer James Christian and Lead Guitar/Pianist/Vocalist Kayla Turk. Calm Of Chaos's early demos were recorded in Kayla's home studio and mastered by James Christian. These demos were later praised by over thousands of fans on myspace. Soon after Doug Callahan joined the band as Bass, Devin Mays as Rythm Guitar, and Dom Iacoboni as Drums. They are currently working on their first LP which a song known as Memories of Broken Pain has been pre-studio recorded and sampled on their myspace to hear the change in vocals. Just google "Calm Of Chaos" and click the 2nd link to hear.

Calm Of Chaos is a multi-genre band which includes genres: Mathcore, Metalcore, Progressive Rock, Acoustic Rock and Classical (Such as Piano, Violins, and Horns.) Two of Calm Of Chaos' major influences are Avenged Sevenfold and Lamb Of God.

Singer James Christian has been told by few to improve on his singing which was too flat in their early recordings. Now after 5 months of vocal training, James is now ready to show everyone what he has learned and improved on. Many say the pre-studio recordings are "very efficient and sounds a hell of a lot more better" then the early demos.

Calm Of Chaos is now writing and preparing new tracks for their upcoming LP recording this fall at Conquistador Recording Studio in Lakewood, Ohio. Calm Of Chaos is also looking at many label opportunities through the studio which include,

Century Media Records
Metal Blade Records
Black Market Activities
Columbia Records
Rust Records
Rotten Records
Innerstrength Records
Candlelight Records
Interscope Records
City of Kings

Calm Of Chaos is going to make their first album half screaming half singing then the next album will be a pure singing metal album. Their is a lot to look forward to in this band for they are going to change modern metal for the better. Previous posts on this site were made by a strung out loser guitarist from the band "Torment Of Sin" whom suffers of jealousy because of Doug (Ex-Bass Torment Of Sin) joining Calm Of Chaos.
I heard Calm Of Chaos is making a new album in August, I can't wait
