Dimmu Borgir’s Shagrath Focuses on Chrome Division Instead
The following update has been issued by the band?s founder / guitarist Shagrath (Dimmu Borgir) and the members of CHROME DIVISION…namely announcing that SUSPERIA‘s Atheria will be singing for the band:
?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 okay for some…
First and foremost, we?ve decided to part ways with Eddie Guz, the voice of CHROME DIVISION 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 2nd of October and our hometown Oslo will get Chromed the 20th 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.
