    NEWS ON THE NEW PROJECT

    Metal band Chaosstar have been in the studio for a few months, recording a new project, which should be released in 2010.

    After the tour to support the album Lifetime (2009), Chaosstar have closed them selves in the studio to record a new project. After moving all of the studio gear twice in search of the ever-elusive sound, the recording still continues. The new product will not be a classic album, as the band decided to record an EP from parts of the material written during the recording of Lifetime. The next full-length studio album will be recorded next. The band has arranged a few short, original ideas into a composition, lasting around 15 minutes. JJ and Beast have been credited for songwriting, while the arrangement credits go to the whole band. Executive producer of the project remains the drummer Primož, however other members of the band have helped co produce some of the material. Chaosstar's rather optimistic goal is to edit the song in postproduction to a more radio friendly format. The would also like to introduce their more »old skool« side to the fans and have decided to record one of the more progressive classics in the history of rock music. The negotiations with the publisher regarding the copyrights are currently in progress, recording will commence as soon as the deal is established and the final product should see the light of day in mid 2010.

    A NEW SYMBOL FOR CHAOSSTAR

    Belgian artist Christophe Szpajdel, also known as »Lord of the logos«, has created a new symbol for chaosstar

    »A good graphic design can get you spotted and that's what every band wants,« explains Dare, bass player for Slovenian progressive band Chaosstar. After Szpajdel created a logo for the band, they also needed a new symbol, a different rendering of the chaos symbol, after which they were named. Christophe has drawn a logo, which differs form the old one. »For start le me say, that everything this band does as a band is a real test of friendship and unity. We're really chaotic and we see a symbolism in Chaosstar: four members, four sides. And of course, the »intermediate« sides, our egos. We wanted those to be smaller, metaphorically and literally – on the symbol and in real life,« says Beast, guitars. The new Chaosstar looks tighter and has sharper lines. The next step is to make a computer rendering of the symbol.

    Music is good, I really like the intros. Vocals really doesn't do it for me.

    CHAOSSTAR DIGITALIZED

    Metal band Chaosstar is once again in kahoots with the author of their original symbol – Tomaž Kranjc

    The basic mission for most of the bands is clear – they create music. Many bands have gone further than that and enhanced their music with exciting graphic solutions. In the spirit of progressive bands, Chaosstar have also aspired to do so. This has resulted in their logo (by Szpajdel), but their symbol predates the logo by a few years. It even predates the band itself, as Beast (guitars) explains: »It started as an idea for the graphic design for my guitar. After the change in the drummer seat, a new name was in order. The idea for the name Chaosstar was around for a few weeks, then we realized it sounds great. And besides, we already had a symbol (laughs).« The original symbol of chaos the band uses for almost six years, is an early work of Tomaž Kranjc, nowadays the founder and owner of the graphic studio Grafika Piksel. Chaosstar needed someone to make a computerized version of their new symbol and it was logical they chose Tomaž: he liked their album Lifetime so much, that he also wanted to be a part of their projects. The new symbol will replace the old one. It is, however, a part of a much bigger picture. How big? Just wait and see.
