NU­CLEAR BLAST

Sha­grath’s biker rockers get home a lit­tle too safe

Formed in 2004 by Dimmu Borgir front­man Sha­grath, who plays rhythm gui­tar here, Chrome Divi­sion play the kind of mu­sic that’s great in the back­ground – in a loud biker bar where no one’s ac­tu­ally lis­ten­ing to it – but on closer in­spec­tion is kinda cheesy. Sure, The Call and the ti­tle track have solid enough riffs and are well con­structed, but in at­tempt­ing to cap­ture the sound of the open road they have in­ad­ver­tently writ­ten car com­mer­cials, with airbags where there should be ape­hang­ers. As the ti­tle sug­gests, this will be the band’s fi­nal al­bum, but like the old biker adage goes, chrome won’t get you home.
