Worst. Timing. Ever.
After Wacken we set out to make the best damn album we could. Something that held the same standard as Chugger live. So we spent a long time writing and perfecting it, and finally we were gonna release it and get back on the road! In April. 2020.
Now, as things are slowly getting back to normal, we’re reigniting the flame by bringing back two live favorites. Songs that always bring the hall to a frenzy, and songs that clearly show how much we’ve grown in these 10 years. The first of these two reimagined tracks to be released is BLEED.
BLEED was the first song Robert wrote for Chugger, waaaay back. We even released a music video for the demo, that 10 years later got taken down by Youtube for “promoting violent criminal organizations”. Oh, the struggles of the modern death metal band…
Keep your eyes and ears peeled on December 17th!
CHUGGER is a five-piece death machine hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden. Sonically they walk the razorwired border between groove metal and death metal, expertly navigating and picking between the two. Like a bastard child of Lamb of God and Machine Head, fused with a healthy dose of old-school At The Gates, this groove death metal monster proves that the golden days of Gothenburg metal is far from over. Visually the band dips their blood stained fists in buckets filled with Rammstein, Slipknot and the horror movies we all love to hate.
On stage CHUGGER is a well oiled machine that has delivered intense performances on top stages across multiple continents all over the world, even praised by the founding father of Wacken Open Air himself. If you have the opportunity to catch them live – buckle up, kid. You’re in for a treat!
“Every track really shows what Chugger is truly capable of after years of honing their craft to the point where it’s extremely deadly to the touch.”
“Chugger is part of a terrific group of contemporary bands that keeps Sweden at the very forefront of modern metal.”
“Fits along side the likes of Lamb of God, In Flames and Arch Enemy”
