This six-piece band Kaos Krew from Finland took its first breaths in 2004 as a one man’s project when the band was founded by the Guitarist and band member Ulf Skog in Jakobstad (Pietarsaari), Finland. Later on in 2005 Göran Fellman (ex. Stormwing), and now ex.band member of Kaos Krew Tomas Öst was added to the line-up (ex. Wild Force).
The band’s music style is known as Industrial Rock/Metal even though the band has ended up under many different metal genre labelling during their active years from different reviewers around the globe. However, their music is hard and the band plays what is called “Crossover Metal” which is based on heavy riffing with the addition of synthesizers and loops from the Industrial scene.
Kaos Krew made their very first advanced studio demo recordings in 2004 for their promo “Under Destruction” which was recorded at Dynamix Studios, released in May 2005. The feedback from this release was very positive worldwide and gave them a record deal with the label Top Records in Finland.

Also that album was recorded at Dynamix Studios, mastered by sound engineer Peter In de Betou at Tailor Maid Music Productions in Sunderbyberg, Sweden.
