DJ Interviews: Order To Chaos

What's up people! DJ Dizzy back in action with an interview this one features an up & coming band whose called Order to Chaos who call Wisconsin home. So let's all get to know Order to Chaos!

How'd you get started in music?

Graham Austiff (Vocals) I got started in music pretty close to how I imagine a lot of others do. I had one other friend in middle school who was also really into music and we found each other. He was always into other bands and then one day in high school I found him without one and finally got to ask if he wanted to start up a project with me and we did. That band eventually became called Pool Of Ashes based out of Woodbridge VA. 

Correy Markowski (drums) I got a guitar and my friend got a drum set in High School. It was about a week later after getting them that he invited me over to show me a song he was playing a long to. I said let me try and we found out I was way better without even practicing. Later that day we traded instruments.

Robert Patrick (Bass/Backing Vocals)  A buddy of mine in high school played guitar and I thought it was really cool so I kinda fell into drums. (my original instrument of choice)

Rich Miller (Guitar) I was 13 years old when I first started to play guitar, There wasn't youtube at that point so I had a book to teach me the basic chords and started learning songs through tabs I'd find on the internet. I just had a natural ear for music and even though my heart lies in Metal I would jam with anyone that wanted to play. 

Who are your inspirations or influences?

Graham Austiff My inspirations are vocalists like Freddie Mercury of Queen, Rob Halford of Judas Priest, Til Lindemann of Rammstein, and Randy Blythe of Lamb Of God. They are also strong influences in how I sing, but added influences for music in general would be Alexi Laiho of Children Of Bodom for his magic ability to play lead guitar as well as lead vocals at the same time. Dani Filth from Cradle Of Filth for his desire to constantly push the boundaries on what his voice can do; low and gravely or sharp as a razor

Correy Markowski   I have quite a few influences but the ones that comes to mind most are Devil Wears Prada which influenced me into the metal core genre and Matt Greiner the drummer for August Burns Red. His unique drumming style and how he executes beats flawlessly and his poly rhythm techniques is why I strive to keep learning and wanting to play more like him.

Robert Patrick I've had alot if influences over the years. I started out loving Ozzy /sabbath before high school then I kinda skipped straight into the more mainstream metalcore once I was a freshman in highschool. (killswitch, the devil wears Prada, old school bring me the horizon, August burns red.) after highschool I got more into hardcore and progressive styles of metal. My more recent influences is stuff like everytime I die, knocked loose, vein, the chariot, and a bunch more. But I also like alot of the djenty stuff as well as some deathcore. 

Rich Miller  I was inspired by Slash and Dave Mustaine growing up when learning to play, but now my influences are all over the spectrum which helps us form our unique sound especially since we are all influenced by different styles and ways of writing. We crash it all together and some how it just works for us.

What advice would offer aspiring performers?

Think of yourself not so much as a musician but more of a entertainer.  I think what alot of people who are new to playing live miss is that people want a show. People want to get wild that's what they go to our type of shows for. They won't get into your music if you don't seem to be into it. And of course practice as much as possible

How do you set yourselves apart from other bands or singers?

We separate ourselves as a band by continually reaching out and trying to put on a better and more intensive live performance. Our drummer is a master at polyrhythms and is a truly creative writer. Our guitarist is a sage for music theory and is always looking for new ways play and different techniques to sharpen his style. Our bassist is a complete mad man and savage onstage as well as being a jack of all trades for just about all instruments. As the lead vocals I try my best to use all of the range my voice has, also to learn different ways that I can bend my voice; I hope one day to pioneer a new style of vocals.

Any new gigs or albums in the future? 

We are always looking to book bigger and better venues and to play with other more recognizable bands but we stick to our roots to and have quite a few shows lining up around Wisconsin this year. You can keep up to date with shows by following us on Facebook or Twitter
We are also looking at releasing a couple singles later this year and potentially a full album in 2020. So make sure you follow us to keep up to date.

Special thanks to them for this interview & I wish them nothing but luck in their success. Until then I'll catch you on the flipside! Stay awesome & rock n roll!
