Chrome Division: Fans of Dimmu Borgir can look forward to the sophomore release from Norway’s Chrome Division later this year. The band, of course, features Dimmu vocalist Shagrath on guitar. Their debut CD, Doomsday Rock ‘n’ Roll, which was released in 2006, was a down and dirty affair, going for a more basic approach than the death metal of Dimmu. Booze, Broads and Beelzebub> doesn’t have a release date at this time.
