APOLOGIES
A couple of days ago we got a mail from a fan who wanted to know what was happening with CHAINED. It felt heart warming to know that we still have fans out there. Thanks for your support.

It has been a very long time since the last update. We want to be honest with YOU, our fans, and to tell you the truth, it has been a tough couple of years in camp CHAINED.

First Stefan, drums, fell ill and was out of it for almost a year, and he spent nealy a year there after to recover. The winter of 2013 and spring of 2014, Daniel, guitar, has battled an inflammation of the hand and wrist.

So here we are, the recording has been put on hold until Daniel recovers. But the drums are recorded and finished. We ask you to pray for CHAINED and let God in and help us find the inspiration and health needed to complete the upcoming album.

Lastly, we sincerely want to apologize to YOU, our fans, for our absence and again send us your thought and prayers. We want to end this news segment with a clip from the drum session. The song is yet untitled. But it will be awesome.



God Bless

STUDIO REPORT 4

Greetings!
For those of you who wonder here is where we are now in the recording process:
All the rythm guitars and all the solo guitars are put down and also all the bass. Dave has done all the vocals, both lead and backing. AND IT SOUNDS GREAT!!! Daniel has started the mixing process and then he will master all of it. Today we will listen through all of the songs and hear the mixed results.
Hopefully within two weeks we will send the record to print and have a complete cd in time for our releaseparty.

Anna has come up with some concept art for the cover. We have found a great concept to the cover; Anna is doing some really good drawings based on some verses from the book of Revelations.

The cover is almost finished and we are really happy with the results, Anna has done a great job.

The album will contain twelve songs of very different character, but all songs are very heavy tracks. We hope that you will be as pleased with the results that we are. And we can't wait for all our fans to hear the album.

Keep tuning in for more info
God Bless

Now for the studio report. We have had a quite long break from recording due to christmas and a lot of other work. Daniel has laid down his rythmics parts and it sounds great. Now Dave has started to records his guitarparts and after that he will record his songparts. Jonas is getting himself ready to his job. We have also come up with some concepts for the cover of the cd. Anna has made some great sketches based on the book of revelations (last book in the New Testament). We hope that you are as exited about this as we are.

STUDIO REPORT 2
We have had some trouble with different gadgets and combined with a heavy schedule full of work we have taken some weeks off. But Daniel have completed the recording of his rythm guitar. After that David will lay down his rythm tracks. Daniel has found a heavy and powerful sound that will give our song a whole new meaning to the word thrash. We have rearranged some bits and pieces here and there in som songs ad improved them,

If you want CHAINED to play in your town visit EVENTFUL and demand CHAINED to come to your town.

God Bless

STUDIO REPORT 1
Things don't always go as planned, or in fact almost never. Due to technical problems we had to delay the recording of the drumtracks four or five days. This gave Stefan (drummer) five or six days to lay down the drums on all the twelve songs.
Today the last track, Drained, was recorded. It turned out to be one of the easier tracks as a matter of fact, also the one Stefan chose to do last as he thougt it would be the hardest to do. Stefan also laid a cowbell on one of the songs but that will remain a secret for now.

The current songlist for the album is:
Like a Rattlesnake
Shattered Minds
My Saviour, My Lord
Bought By Blood
Bound For Glory
Tearing Down My Walls
Can't Have My Soul
Drained
The Weakest Are The Strongest
War Is Hate
Grateful Sinner
Concquerors

Lastly we are looking forward to hear Daniel laying his guitars on the songs. Also we would like to thank God for being with us at all times and making this recording possible for us.
Stay tuned for more info on CHAINED's upcoming album.

God Bless

RECORDING, SOON TO BEGIN!!!
On sunday (July 13th) we begin recording our long awaited debut-album. Stefan will spend about two weeks in the studio laying down the drumtracks. Later on the guitars will be recorded then the basstracks and last but not least; the vocals. We are looking at a month to a month and a half of hard work ahead of us. It will be tough but also a great deal of fun at the same time.

At this point the record will contain 12 solid thrash metal songs. We are really proud of our songs and think that all the tracks are great. We will really enjoy having a final product; a GREAT thrash metal album in the honor of our God and Jesus Christ.

Stay tuned for more info as we will post some studio reports in the future. Don't forget to check out our photo section on myspace as well for some photos from the sessions.
