He enrolled in one of the high schools in Atlanta and as early as his freshman class he formed a band. He did it with his new high school friends called Sean, Sam, Matt, and Kris.
Fronzak was the one to came up with the name for the band Atilla, based on the character of Atilla the Hun about whom he found out through books. He knew that the name of such a huge tyrant from the past would be easy to remember.

As for his personal life, Chris is known as a very temperament person who openly speaks his mind so he was involved in several controversies during his career.
In 2014 he was attacked by Buddy Nielsen, the singer of “Senseless Fail”. The reason was Atilla’s song titled “Proving Grounds” which was considered to be made as an insult to the LGBT community.
