CHAOTICA is an electronic rock band created by Danny Chaotic, who writes, performs, produces, and records the majority of the music on the band's albums. Originally formed in Fort Wayne, Indiana in 1997, the now Phoenix-based CHAOTICA offers high-energy music composed of a combination of elements from industrial, metal, techno, dance, and alternative rock. With haunting subject matter, catchy melodies, and addictive hooks, CHAOTICA delivers a dark perspective on humanity while offering an aggressive new breed of "post-modern" rock with intelligent song writing and a fresh futuristic sound.

Danny Chaotic created the CHAOTICA project in 1997 when he began writing industrial-metal music for his first full length album, which would later be titled "Turbocharger" when it was independently released by CHAOTICA in 1999. Soon after, Danny Chaotic recruited talented local musicians to take CHAOTICA's music to the stage while living in Fort Wayne, Indiana. CHAOTICA's live act performed at local venues in the midwest, often times filling clubs to capacity due to their high-intensity stage antics and over-stimulating light and video effects.
For 4 years running, CHAOTICA won local radio contests to appear on compilation albums produced by area commercial radio station X-102 WEJE (later WXTW) consisting of the hottest local talent. CHAOTICA released a music video for their first single "Ultra Violence" compiled from footage from their live performances. CHAOTICA went on to record a stand-alone single entitled "Where Was God?" that won a spot on the WXTW compilation album "Extreme Essentials Vol. 5. CHAOTICA began receiving notable airplay from college and commercial radio stations from 2001-2002, especially when they released their limited-production remix album entitled "Offset Impact."
CHAOTICA moved on to work with Marilyn Manson's now defunct record company "Posthuman Records" to remix the Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby" covered by the industrial-goth band Godhead. Lords of Acid also contributed to the remix project. Following that, Danny Chaotic left Indiana and moved to Phoenix, Arizona where he began recording tracks for the band's sophomore album, "Prison of Decay."
CHAOTICA is currently releasing material through Phoenix-based indie label "Cold Fusion Records" and plans to release a music video later this year. All songs from Prison of Decay are currently available from most online music download stores (including iTunes, Napster, etc.), and their CD is available on CDbaby.com and through special order from most retail stores, online stores (like Amazon.com, BestBuy.com, etc.), and from the band's website at www.chaoticamusic.com.
