CHAIN TEMPORARILY HANDICAPPED...
Thursday, March 15, 2007 - by Symen
We are sad to announce that our activities have stopped for the moment, and we also had to cancel our gig in Dokkum. Lieuwe was cleaning out our rehearsal room, and hurt his back lifting one of our monitors. Doctor said it could take six weeks to recover.
We wish Lieuwe best of luck with his recovery and hope to be back in business soon. You WILL hear from us!
FIRST GIG AFTER ALMOST TWO YEARS!
Sunday, February 25, 2007 - by Symen
We're happy to announce that we are ready for a gig. We've been practicing with F.C. for almost 6 months now, long enough to put down a great gig on march 17, in De Tille in Dokkum.
We have some new cool metallica tunes in our setlist so come to see us if you like!
CHAIN VERWELKOMT NIEUWE BASSIST FC!
Wednesday, August 30, 2006 - by Symen
Oh yeah! Time has come!
A new bass player!!!
Chain found new faith in playing Dutch thrash metal with the arrival of a new member. FC Landstra has come to join our forces with great playing skills and beautiful bass guitars.
He is like-minded, and also shares influences like Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, etc.
His sound is huge and solid thanks to using Ampeg amps and Mesa Boogie cabs.
We'll be working on a solid playlist, and soon we will hit the stages again... ...and blow your balls off!!!
MENNO LEFT THE BAND... :(
Sunday, November 20, 2005 - by Symen
We're sad to announce that our bass player Menno has decided to leave the band.
Over the summer our musical tastes began to differ and we weren't facing the same direction anymore. We discussed this and decided that it would be best just to shake hands and move on with the three of us (Jan, Lieuwe and Symen).
Menno is currently still playing with his other band 'Above', a collaboration with Allover-drummer Rinse and a few ex-'The Hobbitz'-members. We wish him lots of luck with this band, and good times of course!
In the meantime, the other three of us are still rehearsing, writing new material. The new songs are shorter, heavier, and stranger than our older material. But it's still us.
We will start to look for a new bassplayer in a few weeks. If you play bassguitar, or you know someone who does, and are/is looking for a band, contact Symen so we can talk :)
We'll keep you informed!!!
NEW PROMO CD RELEASED: "FOR THE OPEN MINDED"
Tuesday, August 16, 2005 - by Symen
Yeah! It's out! Our new promo CD "For The Open Minded". It features 5 new songs, and contains a total of 25 minutes of mean thrash metal. Soon we will offer some MP3 clips on our website, but if you can't wait, you can also buy our CD already. For only 5 euro's you may call yourself the proud owner of the newest CHAIN cd.
We will be hoping to get some nice gigs out of this promo cd, so we can pick up where we stopped earlier this year.
We're proud to have pulled it off and to be able to present it to you, and we hope you enjoy every minute of it.
NEW GIGS ADDED
Tuesday, May 24, 2005 - by Symen
I've added some new gigs to our schedule. Next saturday we will be performing in "De Tille" in Dokkum with our friends of the band Outcold.
Also, in august we will be playing in rock cafe "Spider" in Balk, during the "feestweek", which is going to be really cool.
We're happy to have a few gigs to look forward to. We've been standing almost still for the last months it seems. We're having a difficult time finishing up new material, but I think once we get one song finished, more will follow soon, it has always been that way with us... I'll keep you in touch..
And maybe we'll see you at one of our gigs!
Note:Due to huge amounts of guestbook spam, we decided to launch this new website without a guestbook. Maybe it'll be back in the future, who knows...
