About Chosen

Bio from chosen's web-site:

Fusing elements of extreme metal with experimentation, CHOSEN are a band fully intent on taking their multi-layered music to a wider metal audience. Formed by drummer David McCann and guitarist Paul Shields, the Dublin-based act forged an initial quintet line-up in January 2005. March of the same year saw the group recording their first two demo releases simultaneously. These EP's are titled Fragment (Piece I & Piece II). Gigging commenced in July 2005 and continued at a steady pace. Fragment (Piece I) was released in September 2005 and aided the band in securing some good gigs for the remainder of the year.

April 2006 saw the release of Fragment (Piece II) and showcased much improvement from its predecessor, receiving many positive reviews in both local and international press. During this time the guys had already recorded material for their third EP, Fragment (Piece III). However, throughout the mixing process, the band parted ways with second guitarist Lar Bowler.

Released in August 2006, Fragment (Piece III) marked a new step in the group's musical direction and once again earned the band further encouraging feedback from a whole range of press publications. Wasting no time whatsoever, CHOSEN entered Komodo Studios to record some more tracks that were then released in January of the following year under the title Promo 2007.

As well as being the release date for the promo, January 2007 also marked the departure of long-time vocalist Carl King, who due to understandable familial commitments could no longer continue to be a member of the band.

CHOSEN are currently searching for a new vocalist, while at the same time rehearsing intensely and writing as much new material as possible.
