Slovenian drone doom metal duo Chains sign with Interstellar Smoke Records for the release of the vinyl version of their new album, entitled »Musica Macabra«.
The band comments: “We are more than proud to announce our partnership with the Interstellar Smoke Records family, which will release the LP version of our new album »Musica Macabra«. Keep your eyes open for more news.”
Chains was born in 2010 as a hypnotic drone doom one-man project in the vein of Sunn O))), Moss, Urfaust with a 70s horror vibe influenced by bands like Death SS and Paul Chain. In 2012, after the release of the first opus »Of Death« Chad Devis from the American cult doom band Hour of 13 joined the project. At this point, the music took a retro-evolution and became a hybrid between the 80s Italian dark doom, death rock and the 80s hypnotic dark metal and post-punk. In February 2013 Chains released the 7″ EP »Dancing With My Demons« featuring Chad Devis on drums via Svart Records.
Chains went through some line-up changes until 2016, when Matz Sick joined as a full time drummer. They have released numerous EPs, splits, compilations and demos, also on labels like Blood Rock Records, Ordo MCM and Doom Cult Records. Their latest EP »Sonic Sabbath« was released in February 2020 via On Parole Productions.
