“2018 Chaotic Resemblance - Covenant Almost awarded Bride's Snake Eyes album of the year, because it captures a lot of their golden age. But Chaotic Resemblance release this album and it blows me away! Totally brilliant rock album, with a great look and great sound!”- Fundy Fundamentalist, Silence Is Madness (Dec 31, 2018)

 

“11 OF THE BEST METAL SONGS WE'VE HEARD IN YEARS!! Chaotic is this generations answer to Stryper, Bride, Demon Hunter, Project 86, For Today, Skillet and Red. Finally a metal band worth promoting. From shredding guitar solos and screaming vocals, to heavy metal breakdowns and a worship ballad, Covenant is raw, heavy and everything that Christian Metal should be. They are young and energetic, know their Metal, and are about making Jesus famous in the earth. We are not kidding... their shows are tight, their message is unapologetic. If you only buy one album this year, buy this one.”


“I went out for a walk around the Fest but I went back to the Sanctuary and heard the magnificent presentation of the Chaotic Resemblance band whose album was produced by Oz Fox . I must admit that they have their riffs on Stryper guitars but do not get confused, it's a very good band and I must say that sometimes the singer reminded me of Dale Thompson of Bride and sometimes Kevin Young of the band Disciple ; but I was really impressed by this band and not only how they played on the stage but also in the preaching.”
“Their performance Friday on the D&B Processing/Retrospect stage was full of energy, blistering guitars and pounding beats. McConnell proved to be a very charismatic frontman with a powerful voice. His bandmate Ellis added hypnotic riffs along with searing guitar solos; while Sixx on bass grinded out the rhythm along with Jakway’s driving, hammering beats. Several people stopped by the stage to see the performance and the band did not disappoint.”
“For the younger men and teenagers attending the event there was a session with the Christian rock band Chaotic Resemblance led by Travis McConnell, and band members guitarist L.A. Ellis and drummer John Jackway. McConnell, also a dynamic speaker, said the retreat had been amazing. Seeing the men of the community come together and put aside their differences to worship Jesus was exhilarating. He said, “Men are stubborn. So it’s good that we’re focusing on the message of the man of love. “So many times, we think he is a distant God. But he is much more than that. He is accessible. You have to read the Bible with your heart not with your brain to understand,” McConnell said.”

Mention the terms "hair band" or "glam" while referencing the eighties metal scene, and chances are there will be an automatic response:  Someone will shout out Warrant, or Poison, or Stryper, or Skid Row, or Motley Crue, or perhaps even Bon Jovi. Inevitably, new school modern hair metal bands not nearly as popular or well-known but no less musically relevant are spoken of as well:  Black Veil Brides, Hardcore, Superstar, Gemini Five, Crazy Lixx, Desyre and Chaotic Resemblance. Hailing from Poteau, OK and founded in 2006 by vocalist Rexx Roxx. Chaotic Resemblance has gotten off to a strong start with a pair of EP releases to it's credit Chaotic Resemblance (2012) and Battle Lines (2013) in addition to it's summer of 2014 Oz Fox (Stryper) produced full-length debut "Get The Hell Out" 

 

 

 

 

 

GLAMOUR PILL MAGAZINE

"For American New Skool Sleaze band Chaotic Resemblance things are much easier in the Glam condemned land of 21st century USA. Despite this they are doing well and doing what they love. The band tells us that "some people have preconceived ideas of what Glam is but people see that our style is so aggressive with some modern  tuning they are blown away" For them, Glam Metal is "all about the fun loving high energy music get up on your feet & move" despite the pop/hip hop mainstream which hangs as a heavy cloud over USA rockers, Chaotic Resemblance have been able to block it out & follow their passion. 

HORROR METAL SOUNDS

We start the evening off with a rockin' set from Oklahoma mayhem masters, Chaotic Resemblance. They hit the stage running & don't stop. Weith numbers like the title track from their record, "Get The Hell Out" and "War Paint" the crowd likes what they hear. Later no rock show is complete without a mellow tune. "18 and Life" is the one that is chosen. But, it doesn't stay mellow. Tonight, CR is only one speed! Besides a few other selects from their CD, they dot he heaviest version of "Refugee" by Tom Petty I have ever heard. I am sure the reason why they chose that song is "Why keep running when you can find peace in God's Son."

UNABASHED MUSIC FEST

"I really like the song..."Get The Hell Out"...it's about rebuking, removing, disowning, and eliminating everything that remains between us & the Kingdom of God...a high energy tune by 4 really awesome young men"

RIGHTEOUS ROCK RADIO

ROCK LIFE MAGAZINE

The U.S. Chaotic Resemblance makes glam rock as we were used to in the 80's. Bands like Motely Crue, Bon Jovi, Europe & Stryper, many do now appeal to the imagination.  Chaotic Resemblance, wants to revive these times, decked with makeup, and standing in the hair, like these guys are going to conquer the world. The purpose of the band is "bringing back big hair & big songs. We spoke to the singer & frontman Rexx Roxx.

BOUGHT 4 LIFE

These guys are incredible...I ordered both CD's I could find! Gotta love their statement on CDBaby "We are a rock band that also brings the message of Hope to a hurting world. Don't think we are some airy band that sings about some spirit that is gonna help us score weed. No, everything we do is to get the message of Jesus Christ out to a hurting world and of course face melting 70's & 80's style classic rock.

METAL OKC EMPIRE

"My first time seeing this band, WOW! Easily the most lively, energetic band of the show! Playing rock the way I remember it, the way it should be, loud, leather clad, high kicks and high hair! Not some guys imitating their idols, No sir, this is real talent and top notch entertainment with a familiar face! Check out their music!!

The 1st time I saw them play was at a battle of the bands in Clarksville, AR. I've seen Travis play in 112 degree weather, sweating to death, but had a big smile on his face & had everyone in stands standing & singing out loud with him. We also have had them come minister to the homeless at the Tulsa Dream Center. Travis has a great love for ministering to people in need. He had the people dancing on there feet. For these folks it was like having there own little concert.

WARNER A/G

"Had Chaotic Resemblance at our Back 2 School Bash. Service was exciting for our kids & they were challenged to go deeper! I would recommend them for any event to help draw people to the presence of the Lord, that would give people an encounter to remember.

MERF MUSIC GROUP

I only have great things to say about Travis McConnell & as much as I love to hear him sing & minister, he is an all around joy to hang around with. He has a fantastic attitude about everything! I'm sure he will prosper in all he sets his hand to do! Please feel free to call me or email me if you have any questions.
