Biography

Aggressive Finnish deathrash act Deathchain was formed in winter 1997, under the name of Winterwolf. Winterwolf released two demo-cd’s with old line-up, named “Death…will come your way” (January 2000) and “Blood for Death” (January 2001). After these two demos founding member Corpse was disappointed in current state of the band. The autumn 2001 started a new era for the group. After relocating the band to Kuopio new members were found. The new line-up soon took over including founding member Corpse in guitar and vocals, Bobby in guitar, Kuolio in bass and Kassara in drums. Soon after band’s name changed to Deathchain.

In the beginning of the year 2002 Deathchain entered the S. Jämsen’s Studio Perkele and recorded a demo called “Poltergeist” containing four tracks of aggressive deathrash metal . Even though the demo got mainly good reviews, the band wanted to strenghten the vocal department. A new vocalist Rotten was found in summer 2002 and Corpse started consentrating in guitarplaying only. Nevertheless, “Poltergeist” gave Deathchain what they were looking for - a recording deal with a Finnish label, Dynamic Arts Records.

Soon after Deathchain started writing new material for the upcoming deathrash attack. It was hotter than hell in summer 2003 when Deathchain entered once again S.Jämsén’s Studio Perkele in order to record their debut album. After insane nights in the studio and with the mastering assintance of Minerva Pappi at the Finnvox Studios, on fall 2003 Deathchain delivered the goods with their fiery debut album titled “DEADMEAT DISCIPLES”. Containing 9 songs of the bursting deathrash metal, album came out October 1st and started getting great reviews in Finnish media.

    @blackened they might not be downloaders, that may just be the way someone submitted the track titles to freedb and on itunes as is often the case. anyway for someone on lastfm to disparage downloaders is very hypocritical.

    I can't really get in to their other albums that much but Deathrash Assault is one of the best albums ever created, everything on it is perfect.

    I'd expect this band to be more popular, seeing the quality and quantity of the music they've put out. This should definitely appeal to for example Morbid Angel, Behemoth and Nile fans.

    Like Worms Upon the Lands is a very strong candidate to Deathchain's best song. So goddamn wicked and versatile.

    Just got the new album this morning (and a badass t-shirt with it), and loving the shit out of this album. In my opinion, this is their best death metal album they've made so far.

    Death Gods is competent death metal, but I still miss their death/thrash hybrid sound.

    I agree that Death Eternal is underrated although it's much weaker than Deathrash Assault or Death Gods. But Song of Chaos And The Void should be in top tracks instead of Titans of The Black Earth IMHO.

    Titans Of The Black Earth is epic!!! So strange that this song isn't present in the list of best songs... [2]
