Welcome to the Holler: Obscure Chaos Zine

Obscure Chaos Fanzine

Supports all Rock, Metal, Hardcore and Punk World-Wide


It was in the closing stages of June 2010 that the idea of Obscure Chaos Fanzine was conceived in the USA. Our force is currently composed of dedicated freelance journalists, musicians, rockers, metalheads, poets, promoters, graphic designers, DJ’s that simply contribute their work because we worship music and it is our passion to share it all over the world. We enjoy supporting and promoting our friends as much as we can.


With all the rapid growth and changes within the ROCK, METAL, PUNK and HARDCORE genres our conception feels fit as we embrace a much wider range of music within these styles.


We review demos, vinyls, albums, DVDs, interviews and news about newsworthy issues, primarily regarding new albums, upcoming tours, line-up changes or new projects and to help promote bands who spike the perfect balance of savageness, ambiance, creativity and musicianship to new levels. It doesn’t matter how immense or diminutive you are . . . come and get exposure!


Obscure Chaos Zine, has expanded our mailing list to over 5,000 since our birth with industry contacts and fans worldwide. We are currently forming a mailing list of music fans and concert go-ers across the world to try and help build up your following.

We’re presently working on developing stronger relationships and gaining affiliations with music industry resources, labels, radio stations, agents, managers, promoters, venue coordinators, clubs, fest, magazines, fanzines (zines), graphic designers’, photographers and models, web directories, blogs, podcasts, social networks, and licensing opportunities (film/tv/games). We provide promotions all across the world and will try to help you with record label submissions, developing a proper press kit, bios, and internet promotions.

One of our goals is to support bands the old school way of word of mouth and through exposure on our pages.

We promote hard from our hearts because we appreciate all rock, metal, hardcore and punk music and believe in cultivating relationships with all. We support as many as possible and welcome you to promote on our walls with your band links, music and upcoming shows. Promotion is the key to unlock the gates of your success.


If you are sending a demo/album for review, please make sure the envelope is clearly marked DEMO and include a biography and contact email / url or phone number. Please also ensure your band name is written clearly as deciphering spiky logos can be near impossible.
