CHROME DIVISION: Video Footage Of INFERNO Festival Performance

Video footage of CHROME DIVISION, the Norwegian five-piece featuring DIMMU BORGIR frontman Shagrath (a.k.a. Stian Thoresen) on guitar, performing the song "Fight (Rumble 'N' Roll)" on March 28 at the Inferno festival in Oslo, Norway can be seen below.

CHROME DIVISION is continuing work on its fourth album for a late 2013 release via Nuclear Blast Records. According to CHROME DIVISION vocalist Shady Blue (a.k.a. Athera), the new CD "is coming along fantastically."

CHROME DIVISION will take a break from recording the album to play three shows in Germany and Italy in April.

Says Shady Blue: "Germany! Raise your flags and prepare for the ultimate doomsday experience! CHROME DIVISION will return on the 26th April to Düssedorf at the Pitcher29 club, and in Dortmund Rock In Den Ruinen festival on the 27th.

"We are stoked to be back in Germany after two years and play live again! While still working on the new album, we welcome a break to come and drink beers and raise hell with you all.

"Looking forward to meet new and old fans and have some ballbreaking shows! We are the CHROME DIVISION and we're coming to town!

"The gig in Italy is a charity/rememberance festival for a young girl who died from a drunk driver. Her parents run the festival and it's in its fifth year. Many Italian bands play for free each year to support, and they each year have a special headliner act. This year it is us!"

CHROME DIVISION last year parted ways with bassist Björn "Burn" Luna and guitarist Ricky Black. Luna, who was a member of CHROME DIVISION since its inception in 2004, "will work with us from behind the curtains of doom, and contribute on the lyrical side of things in the future," according to the band.

CHROME DIVISION current lineup:

Shagrath - Guitar
Ogee - Bass
Shady Blue (a.k.a. Athera) - Vocals
Damage Karlsen - Guitar
Tony White - Drums

CHROME DIVISION's third album, "3rd Round Knockout", was released in Europe on May 6, 2011 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was recorded at Marius Strand Studio in Oslo.

CHROME DIVISION in August 2009 parted ways with longtime vocalist Eddie Guz "due to lack of dedication and commitment to the band." His replacement, Athera, originally 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.
