KISSING CHAOS, simply put, sounds like Recover mixed with No Motiv and the sounds of early Deep Elms Records bands. The band name is pretty apt, as there is chaos and the melodic/sappy parts bring to mind lipstick kisses.

The band uses both screaming and singing, with Hum, No Motiv and Criteria sounding clean vocals, slightly monotone but able to carry a decent melody nonetheless. The screaming could come straight from the early Recover LP and EP (aka before they got shitty). "Lost Evidence" gives us a decent example of this (although it's certainly not the best song), while "Enter with a Bullet" takes it up a notch and is definitely the band's best song and worth a listen regardless of my qualms with much of the EP. "Communication Discontent" veers the ship back to melodic territory and hovering vocals but has no bite to it. "In the Tradition of Betrayal" is pretty poppy in the vocal department and might have some tweens salivating were it to be released today (it was released way back in 2003), but it does inject some aggression occasionally. The closer "The Power and the Intent" is another very aggressive song that makes this EP worth checking out, as just one song ain't enough for this guy, but 2/5 is pretty deeeeeecent.
