In The Beginning, There Was Just:
FORGED IN ROCK during the early 1980’s in the Heart of the City of San Pedro Sula, Honduras, KHAOS Broke Traditional Local Music Paradigms by Becoming the FIRST HONDURAN GROUP to Compose and Record Original SPANISH ROCK MUSIC and Perform According to its Own Unique Personality.
Junior Mejia : Drums, Percussion & Vocals
Marcelo Alvarado: Bass Guitar
Max Urso: Guitars,
Issa Molina: Guitars & Solos
These Traits Placed KHAOS Firmly on the Cutting Edge – Smashing Traditional Values while Overcoming Strong Resistance from the Honduran Music Community. Nonetheless, KHAOS developed an Avid Central American cult-like following – Thanks to its Numerous Spectacular Concerts Throughout the Region to Promote their Music and which finally Culminated in Receiving Heavy Radio Airplay throughout Honduras.
The Most Popular Tunes are: “Roleando”, “En Llamas”, and “En las Garras del Diablo”.
These LEGENDARY SONGS are STILL VERY POPULAR TODAY within Honduras.
In early 1985, the group traveled to the neighboring country of El Salvador to record its only published album, “Forjado en Rocka”, which has become an Overwhelming Success and thus guarantees KHAOS’ place in Honduran Rock Music History as ONE OF THE BEST and MOST POPULAR HONDURAN ROCK GROUPS EVER.
As indicated by the Album’s Title, KHAOS’ Music is Firmly Rooted in HARD ROCK. This album has Nine Tracks – each one playing an integral part in shaping the overall album. The LP is not a simple song compilation, but rather a CONCEPTUAL ALBUM that REVOLVES AROUND a CENTRAL THEME. This Breakthrough Concept Played a Key Role in Achieving its International Recognition.
Unfortunately, diverse interests and pressures within the group totally unrelated to music led to the group breaking up in late 1985. However, even though KHAOS hasn’t played together in over a decade, their popularity continues to soar in Honduras, Thanks to the continued support of local Honduran Radio Stations and Die Hard Fans.
Due to the Group’s Continuously Growing Popularity Throughout the World, KHAOS has decided to Release a Completely Re-Mastered Compact Disc Version of the out-of-print Original LP Album later this year. KHAOS is Proud to Announce that the NEW CD VERSION of “Forjado en Rocka” Will Be SOON AVAILABLE ON-LINE HERE!
