Chaotic Existence is a Cincinnati-based alternative metal band formed in 2006 by drummer Cara Schneider and guitarist/vocalist Tosha Montgomery. After recruiting guitarist/vocalist Jason King and bassist/vocalist Josh King, the band began hitting the local music scene. Originally going for an Evanescence-like sound, the band fired original lead vocalist Chassidy Gibson due to personal conflicts with the rest of the band. After her departure, Chaotic Existence decided to take a much heavier direction, culminating into the band that they are today. With the loss of long-time bassist/singer Josh King, they recruited Devin "The Green Zebra" Brooks as their new bassist, and Nikki Mallin as their new found female singer/screamer. They are very excited to welcome them and their excellent musical skills to the Chaotic family. Chaotic Existence is known for blending chunky, down-tuned guitars with complex drum patterns, dueling harmony guitars, fast-paced soloing and a four-singer attack, complete with screaming, plus fourth interval harmony vocals. This sound is instrumental in songs such as "Salvation", "Dead and Broken", "Falling Down", and the epic ballad "Dying". They are also known for their rampageous live performances, which include playing with a stage full of fans during the song "Ascending", and inviting people to participate in jam sessions at the conclusion of their set. The band's first studio recording, "A To The Triangle Circle", is completed and was released April 10th, 2009. The three-song demo was recorded by Rob Rieman (of the band Milkweed) at Hansum Productions, and perfectly captures the energy of the band's intense live show. To this day, Chaotic Existence continues to push themselves in new and exciting directions, while still working hard to put Cincinnati Metal on the map once and for all.
