CHROME DIVISION, the Norwegian five-piece featuring DIMMU BORGIR frontman Shagrath (a.k.a. Stian Thoresen) on guitar, has set "3rd Round Knockout" as the title of its third album, due in April via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was recorded at Marius Strand Studio in Oslo and features the following tracks, among others: "Bulldogs Unleashed", "Zombies & Monsters", "Fight", "Join The Ride" and "Unholy Roller".
CHROME DIVISION is prearing to film two new videos with director Patric Ullaeus of Revolver Film Company (DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL, IN FLAMES, SONIC SYNDICATE, KAMELOT), who previously worked with the group on the "Serial Killer" clip (off 2006's "Doomsday Rock 'N' Roll" album).
CHROME DIVISION in August 2009 parted ways with longtime vocalist Eddie Guz "due to lack of dedication and commitment to the band." His replacement is none other than Athera of SUSPERIA, who filled in for Guz at the Winterfire Festival at Hessenhallen in Giessen, Germany on February 21, 2009 after Eddie Guz was unable to make the gig.
An e-card for "Booze, Broads And Beelzebub", the sophomore album from CHROME DIVISION, can be accessed at this location.
"Booze, Broads And Beelzebub" was released in July 2008 in Europe and August 2008 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records.
The follow-up to 2006's "Doomsday Rock 'n' Roll", "Booze, Broads And Beelzebub" was recorded at Studio Fredman in Sweden during January 2008 and was described by the band as "a bit more varied than 'Doomsday Rock 'n Roll'. A bit more metal, more fast stuff, but still the basics in filthy rock 'n' roll."
CHROME DIVISION current lineup:
Shagrath - Guitar
Luna - Bass
Shady Blue (a.k.a. Athera) - Vocals
Ricky Doom - Guitar
Tony White - Drums
