Arise in Chaos is a mixture of thrash-groove metal from Denver, Colorado. The group formed as a trio in early 2011 with vocalist Dustin ‘Lei” Griboski, drummer Jeramy ‘Jer” Matheson, and guitarist Cameron Burris, and shortly thereafter recorded and released their debut album “Civilization Decay” co-produced and mixed by Ahrue Luster (ex Machine Head/Ill nino) with addition as Ryan Orr on lead guitar, as well as John Vickers on bass in late 2012. After the album’s release they shared the stage with such acts as, All That Remains, 3 inches of blood, Soulfly, Motionless In White, Within The Ruins, toxic holocaust and HAVOK. As time progressed in 2014, Burris left the band as did Orr, and later Vickers. After their departure from the band, the remaining core of the group, Griboski and Matheson, developed and grew to a more melodic and progressive band who drafted and brought in Adam Landreth and Nick Allen on guitar, as well as Drew “Keeb” Gillett on bass to complete the current line up, still true to this day.
In November 2015 Arise in Chaos signed to, co-founder of Megadeth, David Ellefson’s label “EMP Label Group” for the release of their next album Terminal Cognition. Released May 13th, 2016 globally via Eone/SPV.
After the unveiling of “Terminal Cognition”, finding a tour to showcase the album was becoming difficult due to the bands current management and booking issues. In October they made an opportunity by chance, and traveled overseas to support Hungarian based metal band, Ektomorf, for their “Aggression Over Europe’ tour. Joined also with the fellow US based group Hemlock, Arise In Chaos played 6 countries over 26 show dates. Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Switzerland, and Germany all got to taste the chaos! Living out of a Night Liner for over a 6 weeks, and having highlights such as melting faces for 14 days straight without a break, fed the fire of the bands brutality.
Once returning from Europe, the group immediately began working on the follow up record to “Terminal Cognition” for delivery to EMP, as well as playing shows in the states. Mini tours are currently in progress, and the band is awaiting the album’s completion/release, displaying the growth musically and in attitude of Arise in Chaos.
