emails below are not fake. They are real messages from real
people, and are just some of many we have received to date
from music lovers across the world in response to first contact
band is phenomenal! I appreciate the manner in which you approached
me with your music, it was quite considerate. It makes me
wish I were living nearby so I could catch a show. You guys
are a force to behold. Cheers!
Mike, Prescott Valley, Arizona, United
sweet! Seriously, your music is awesome. Good, tight musicianship.
Im definitely telling my friends about you.
Steve, Cary, Illinois, United States
First off, Id like to thank you for the message.
I really appreciate bands who take the time to truly promote
their stuff instead of clicking buttons to see numbers change,
which is why I dont give bands the chance of day if
all they can do is constantly add friends. Second, I did check
out your music and I am really impressed. You guys have a
great sound and I cant wait to hear more of your stuff.
All in all keep kicking ass and doing what you love best.
Rob, California, United States
I took a listen to your tunes and watched your videos
from your sessions at Komodo Studios and I was totally impressed.
You guys are doing some great and heavy work. I really enjoyed
it, youve got a new fan in Canada! Keep in touch and
keep me updated on whats happening in the world of Chosen.
Scott, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada
Wow! Im always on the prowl for good new music
but most importantly something with a groove that also delivers
its harsh blows of creativity, and you definitely filled my
plate! This is some good shit, after listening to it enough
times it definitely gives me the goose bumps and gets my adrenaline
rushing. Let me know what I have to do to get a hold of some
more of this music, and like anything good in life, I will
share your name with my fellow metal heads.
Fernando, Barnhart, Missouri, United
Thanks for the little message. Had you given me a friend
request I probably would have just blown you off like so many
other bands who are just trying to gain plays and popularity,
but not respect. I appreciate the fact that youre not
trying to shove yourselves down my throat; that you gave me
an introduction to yourselves and were down to earth rather
than placing yourselves on a pedestal. I did indeed check
out your music and I have to say that I think the songs are
phenomenal. Its too bad the rest of the industry doesnt
sound like you guys. Im tired of shit repetitive metal
and this whole emo-alternative metal thing that everyone is
moving towards. We need more Opeth, Devin Townsend, Daylight
Dies, and Chosen. Again, thanks for the message guys.
Dave, Tacoma, Washington, United
I think your stuff sounds great. Lots of influences,
but none taking full form. You keep it your own and definitely
keep my ear!
Jon, Adkins, Texas, United States
I just checked you guys out and holy fucking shit, Im
blown away. You dudes are easily the best Irish metal band
Ive heard. Keep on doing what you do and kicking ass
Josh, Wise, Virginia, United States
I really liked the tone and approach of your MySpace
message. Ive had so many metal bands sending me requests,
but theres just too many. Your message grabbed my attention
and interested me enough to check out your band. Im
glad I did. Great tunes! Really solid musicianship and compelling
arrangements. Let me know when you guys have a gig and Ill
come show some support. All the best.
Colin, Los Angeles, California, United
Thanks for the invite to check out your band! Thoroughly
enjoyable website and brilliant tunes!
Ron, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
All I can say is wow! Thats what metal is supposed
to sound like. Cant wait to hear more! You have amazing
influences, and it really shows in the music in a unique way.
Keep that shit up, I want to see you guys show these kids
what real metal is all about. You got my support to the fullest.
Anthony, Las Vegas, Nevada, United
Your music is actually really cool, I dig it. I truly
thank you for taking the time to write a message and let me
decide for myself rather than push it upon me. I do get many
add requests from bands constantly, almost to the point that
I dont even listen to them any more, it gets to the
point where all these crappy bands have made me so uninterested
that I would normally miss out on hearing a good band!
Jason, Austin, Texas, United States
Good stuff, the Nevermore and Death influences really
come out. Killer tunes, great recordings, they sound awesome.
Ill be passing on your name to some friends of mine
also, I know they would like you guys a lot.
Clark, Everett, Washington, United
Love the influences in your music, you guys are a very
tight unit. I love and appreciate the speed, precision, and
passion that you guys display. Thanks for the no bullshit,
no pretence, totally sincere request for a listen to your
work. All the best to you guys!
Ray, Los Angeles, California, United
Thanks for the message. I really like to see a band
that is thorough and takes time to get to know people. Your
music rules. I always love to hear new metal bands. Im
definitely going to show your music to my friends. Thanks
again. Rock on!
Peter, Logan, Utah, United States
Id like to say thanks for the email. Makes a change
from the faceless shit friends requests I get, which I deny
on the basis that the bands have no intention of having anything
to do with their fans and are just building hit numbers and
friends so they can send out an electronic press-kit to record
companies to show how popular they are! Right, now that Ive
gotten the cynical rant out of the way, I have to say, Im
really enjoying the tracks mate!
Wes, London, United Kingdom
Well, it took me a couple days to respond, but I must
really commend your message. I did check out your music and
I think its really good. But as stated before, I must
commend your approach. I praise your method of personally
reaching out to potential fans and I will be keeping an eye
(or rather an ear) on your music. Cheers!
Paul, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States
Thank you for the polite and humble e-mail. Holy fuck,
why havent I heard of you guys until now? This is some
good shit. I must indeed purchase some of this! Thank you!
Jason, Fairview Heights, Illinois,
I was all set to add your band based on your email.
You hit the nail on the head with the friend requests. I get
way too many, especially from bands that have little to no
musical ability, yet somehow acquire the rockstar ego along
the way. Im a musician myself, and love to support my
fellow musicians, but so many people sending friend requests
are just trying to pump up their friends list, and send lots
of spam, so anytime I come across a band such as yours, who
takes the time to read the profile, send me a message, that
is so incredibly respectful and on top of it all, possesses
excellent musicianship, along with an excellent quality recording,
Im definitely more than willing to add you. Thanks for
Jeremy, Chesterfield, Virginia, United
I like! Bits of thrash and some excellent groove. Technical
but in a tasteful Human or Symbolic
kind of way. No Meshuggah copying. No hardcore breakdowns.
Good stuff! Cant say I know many Irish metal bands but
today I learned of a new one. Very cool indeed. Cheers!
Brady, Phoenix, Arizona, United States
You guys have a great sound. Good crunch, progressive,
and thank fuck you dont have that need to be the fastest
blast beat, the most wanking lead player, the most leaden
(and boring bass) or the most mindlessly guttural singer,
grunting absolute shit. All the flavours are just right, and
sounding fresh. I love it.
Chuck, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Wow, thank you for not just being some piece of shit-core
band trying to get big numbers by adding everyone they see.
You seem very sincere in your approach and really honest.
I really like your music a lot. Your music reminds me of Gojira,
heavy riffs and the like.
Michael, Trenton, Ohio, United States
This may go down as the most polite message ever sent
by a metal band in the history of the world. After hearing
about thirty seconds of the first track on your page you guys
have already managed to differentiate yourselves from the
plethora of shit bands out there. Interesting right from the
start. Nice recording quality too. Thanks for sharing your
James, North Fort Myers, Florida,
You guys are without a shadow of a doubt a really badass
band. You sound great and are a breath of fresh air as far
as how you contacted me. Its awesome that you took the
time to be personal about things and care about how you are
looked at in such a soulless spam world. Well, you guys keep
kicking ass and stay in contact!
Reese, Winchester, Virginia, United
Your message was fucking brilliant and much appreciated.
I checked you guys out and I like what I heard. You got yourselves
James, Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania,
Thanks for your message, I really dig your approach!
Youre absolutely right, perpetual spamming is a pain
in the ass! I mostly deny friend requests from bands without
even checking out their pages (I think its quite justifiable,
considering the crap going around nowadays!) and your message
is a clear sign of a maturity which is hard to find in modern
metal, and your music mirrors this maturity perfectly! I really
enjoyed your tracks, your technicality is stunning and your
compositions have that wicked, sick, twisted, insane touch
that made me fall in love with bands like Death and Meshuggah
in the first place. Keep up the good work! And let me know
going to be performing gigs in Europe!
Tommy, Amstelveen, Netherlands
Your music sounds really awesome and I would love to
buy your album. Thanks again for the message and allowing
me to listen to your music. Hope to see you guys soon in Phoenix.
Ill spread the word about Chosen.
Chris, Phoenix, Arizona, United States
I actually blocked add requests from bands a long time
ago because I kept receiving numerous requests to add bands
that sounded like shit. Something that seems to be different
with Chosen. I really dig your sound, and youre an incredible
drummer! You seem to surround yourself with musicians of equal
talent too. Thanks for the message bro!
Matt, Atlanta, Georgia, United States
It took me about five seconds to realise you guys are
unbelievable. Absolutely love your stuff. Cant wait
to hear some more!
Jason, Melbourne, Australia
You guys are crazy! Your songs are great, why are all
the good bands these days so far away from where people live?
If you dudes hadnt of messaged me I probably wouldnt
have found your band, so thanks for that! You guys get two
metal thumbs up in my book. Ill tell you what, Im
going to tell more people about you guys around these parts.
You guys are sick! Peace!
Matt, Miami Bay, Florida, United
