Shoot Me Again webzine conducted an interview with CHROME DIVISION — the Norwegian five-piece featuring DIMMU BORGIR frontman Shagrath (a.k.a. Stian Thoresen) on guitar — on March 28 at the Inferno festival in Oslo, Norway. You can now watch the chat 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 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.
