chILL's music can be described as some kind of "controlled chaos", where grunge driven rock blends seamlessly into brutal metal. The band's goal is to make internationally competitive music without any kind of restrictions or preconceptions, and to create something genuine and special in these times of superficial recycled entertainment.
