    KAOS, a Canadian traditional Heavy Metal quintet were formed in 1982 in remote St. John's, Newfoundland, by a young Bavarian emigree, guitarist Rainer "Rhino" Wiechmann.
    After hooking up with drummer Sandy Forbes, the fledgling band performed on a CBC TV talent show called "The Fame Game".
    After installing CBC voice-over artist Cindy Wiechmann as vocalist, (she soon became Rhino's wife), Kaos released the critically acclaimed "Total Kaos", Mini LP on their own Mole Records label in 1985.
    The highlight of the seven song self-released record is the amazing instrumental, "March of the Gremlins", a must-hear for fans of epic '80's riffing.
    "Total Kaos", now commands a ridiculous price-tag, with copies changing hands amongst collectors for around $200 in online auctions.
    In 1986 the band landed some support slots on HELIX's Canadian tour, bringing Kaos to the attention of larger audiences.
    A cassette only Mini album entitled "TV Eye" was released in 1987 following some line up changes within the Kaos ranks.
    The band's video, "Summer Of Love", then began to get airplay nationally leading to further gigs opening for acts such as HEADPINS, SASS JORDAN and CHILLIWACK.
    This in turn led to more widespread dates playing with international acts like ALICE COOPER, MOTORHEAD and DIO.
    After that round of touring ended, the band planned to move to the mainland to be better placed to take advantage of any possible future opportunities.
    However, one by one, the other members decided they were unwilling or unable to commit to the move, sadly bringing Kaos to an end.
    Undeterred, the Weichmann's moved to London, Ontario and worked in various bar acts for more than a decade, eventually opening their own recording studio.
    Following some Helix recording sessions at the Wiechmann's studio in London, both Wiechmann's were invited to become members of Helix.
    Their tenure in the veteran Canadian band lasted from 2003 to 2006.
    Rainer Wiechmann has also become a respected producer, working with THINE EYES BLEED, BLOOD OF CHRIST and KITTIE.
    The Weichmann's now have a new band called NAIL which includes another former member of Kaos in it's line up, drummer Dale Penney.
    To date, Nail have released two very impressive full length albums, 2007's "Nail" and 2010's "Power And Greed".
    The power of Cindy's awesome voice remains undiminished by the passing years, and Nail's music is an impressively muscular mix of Traditional Metal with a strong Progressive edge.

    For a few days I can not get rid of the "Big World". Such a cool song. Almost pop, but who cares. It's my new guilty pleasure ;)
