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, Doom Cult Records and On Parole Productions. Their latest full-length album »Musica Macabra« was released in March 2021 via Decadence Within Records, Interstellar Smoke Records and At War With False Noise.
