If you ever wanted to find out what it would sound like if Slayer got into a fight with Flogging Molly on stage, after which they decide to patch things up with a bottle of vodka, listen to Chain of Dogs. Their energetic mix of folk, metal and punk is a guaranteed recipe for a party on the stage and in front of it. Chain of Dogs are from the province of Limburg in the south of the Netherlands and use their native dialect beside the English language. They have toured with Suidakra, Waylander and XIV Dark Centuries among others, and regularly play with internationally acclaimed bands like Heidevolk, Arkona and Finsterforst. Festival which billed the Dogs include Black Troll Winterfest, Sodom Open Air and Occultfest.
After the self-released EP “Bridgeburners” (2008) and the full-length “Gebroake, Gehange en Gewroake” (Witches Brew, 2010) their new EP “Deathworld” is released in 2012, containing three brand new tracks, one based on the novel “Deathworld” by Harry Harrison and two new Limburgian sagas.

Olaf Nijssen – vocals and mandolin
Arne Gerits – violin, whistles and vocals
