Chrome Division - Change Vocalist

Guitarist Shagrath has issued the following update on behalf of Chrome Division:

"Hail all you Rock 'n' Rollers out there! We thought it would be the right time for a little update from Hell, to all the Chromers out there. A lot of things are happening in the Chrome Camp these days, and not everything is ok for some...

First and foremost, we've decided to part ways with Eddie Guz, the voice of Chrome since 2005. He's out, due to lack of dedication and commitment to the band. Since the band is more active than ever, it would only slow down the tempo of achieving their future goals. This decision needed to be done for the benefit of Chrome Division. Eddie Guz will still remain a friend and a drinking buddy, but sometimes friendship and music don't always blend easily together. But we ensure our fans that there is no need to worry.

In February, Shady Blue (Athera of Susperia) stepped in for Eddie on a gig in Germany, and the result was very pleasing for both the band and the fans. So we are happy to announce that Shady Blue has now become a full worthy permanent singer in Chrome Division.

The breakup had some consequences in form of the cancellation of two festival jobs in Germany, which is totally unfortunate and really frustrating for the band, but sometimes the shit hits the fan for real... Nevertheless, a concert in London is booked for October 2nd and our hometown, Oslo, will get Chromed the 30th of November. So the live situation doesn't look too bad after all.

Anyway, we also want to enlighten and share with our fans that Chrome Division is in a full creative process of completing the material for our third album. Only a few more songs to complete before it's ready to be recorded. We're aiming for a release sometime next year.

A new member, new oil in the engine, new boost and a new era. Await the 3rd chapter of unholy rock n' roll!"

Dimmu Borgir - Frontman Talks About Side-Project Chrome Division

MrRock.net recently conducted an interview with Dimmu Borgir frontman Shagrath about his side-project Chrome Division (in which he plays guitar). A few excerpts from the chat:

MrRock.net: As a musician, how important is it for you to show all of your musical sides, and not just be considered a black metal musician?

Shagrath: Do you mean me personally?

MrRock.net: Yes.

Shagrath: Well, you know, I'm satisfied with my role in Dimmu. I create all of the music for Dimmu, which people probably don't know much about — they think that I'm just singing, but I also create a lot of the music for Dimmu Borgir. But a lot of the people don't see it like that. They see me more as a singer, but I've also played guitar for many years, I play keyboards for years.

MrRock.net: As a guitar player, who would you say are your biggest influences? I hear a lot of Ted Nugent in your monster guitar riffs.

Shagrath: I don't think that I take direct inspiration from any specific person, but I like a lot of different styles of music. I like AC/DC, Motörhead, some Black Labe Society, Monster Magnet, and bands like that. I don't try and copy anyone in those bands, but you can hear some similarities between bands like us and, say, a band like Motörhead.

MrRock.net: Is Chrome Division going to be doing any touring?

Shagrath: Well, you know, Dimmu is still my main responsibility and we are in the process of making a new album and writing new songs, so I have to prioritize that. But also, the other people in the band also have day jobs, families, and children. It's very hard to book a full tour. We have gotten some offers, but so far we have only played one show. But, if the timing is right, and everybody is able to do it, we'll try to take as many live jobs as possible. It wouldn't be like a full tour though.

MrRock.net: I know it's still early to tell, but will there be more Chrome Division music coming down the road?

Shagrath: Actually, we meet up once a week, and we already have 3 new songs written, and we're working on song number 4 for the next album.
