Chaos in Paradise / Bio

In the autumn of 2008, CHAOS IN PARADISE started taking their first steps in a small garage in Oporto suburbs, where Alex and Quik began to outline the identity of the band. After a few days, they started searching for other musicians to complete CHAOS IN PARADISE and after a while they found Pedro for guitar, 19 for bass and Sara for the vocal parts.

With the band as a whole, the quintet began writing their first Demo which came out in February 2010, including the songs "Dawn", "Heading North", "The Meaning of Being Imposed" and "Antagonized". The band recorded the Demo at their own studio and released and distributed the four songs online for free!

After, CHAOS IN PARADISE began their live shows through Portugal, to promote their work and also to obtain experience as a band.

In the beginning of 2011, the band returned to the rehearsal room to start writing their following work, trying a new approach to improve their sound, bringing their own identity to it and making it more coherent. With the pre-production on the baggage, the recording sessions of the EP started in March 2011 at Soundvision Studios in Vila do Conde with Paulo Lopes in the co-production.

From the EP entitled "Let the Bliss Remain" the band released their first single "Awareness" to the fans and press, acquiring unanimous opinions expressing that their evolution and sound quality had a huge improvement.

With the "Let the Bliss Remain" presentation and release in June 2011, CHAOS IN PARADISE went back to the road in the same month to promote their EP in Portugal and they did their first International show on October of 2011 at Sala Excalibur in Madrid, Spain.

They continue to promote “Let the Bliss Remain”, not only live but with the release of their first music video “Sanzu River” on April 2012, the 3rd single extracted from their work.
