An amazing wall of sound, apocalyptic and experimental, combined with a brutal vocal make Umbilichaos one of the most interesting projects in recent years. A project led by the competent Anna C Chaos, guitarist, vocalist, programmer and feminist trans lesbian songwriter.
An amazing and innovative project!
Umbilichaos is a slow and crushing solo project, from São Paulo-Brazil, started in 2007 by artist Anna C Chaos. Songwriter, poetess, guitarist, singer, sound programmer and feminist trans woman.
As Umbilichaos, she creates a sound experience abolishing conventional structures in favour of a cinematic take, evoking the most diverse thoughts and emotions. Inspired by Joy Division, Cocteau Twins, Neurosis, Godflesh, Melvins, Earth, Swans, Death, Sepultura, Meshuggah, Joni Mitchell, Pink Floyd, Sonic Youth, Black Flag & Portishead.
With 11 records and other releases to the date, searches for the construction of an epic and apocalyptic sound language, in constant evolution.
In 2019, Umbilichaos released 2 singles and her 10th record, played in the 14th Sinfonia de Cães Fest, and 6th Obscuro Fest, both important underground events for punk, experimental and heavy music; the closing show in 17th Lesbian and Bissexual Women Walk.
