Band: Full Blown Chaos
A metalcore band from Queens, Full Blown Chaos is known for creating some of the most forceful and destructive metal to ever come from the East Coast. Asked to support Diecast and Hatebreed on the “Heavyweights of Hardcore 2 Tour,” FBC’s amalgam of hardcore punk and extreme metal has been likened to a detonating warhead, which frames socially conscious lyrics dealing with contemporary topics and issues.
Mike “Lurk” Ruehle invokes atom-splitting bass tones played at volumes better suited for smashing cement. The bruising effect on tracks like “Chopping Block” and “Kingdom Undone” on the band’s 2006 release,Within The Grasp of Titans punishes as much as it piledrives. His fierce agility and dexterity can see Slayer’s hand and raise it on any given day.
