Chains Premiere "Cages"

San Francisco’s Chains deliver their own unique blend of hardcore-influenced metal with a polished finish. Vocalist Matt Wilson: "I am equal parts darkness and light, and I have always had ideas that wouldn’t quite work for Set Your Goals; either the lyrics were too dark or the parts were too aggressive. Chains is an outlet for that. Once Set Your Goals slowed down I was able to put my ideas into motion. I grew up listening to extreme music, and this project is more in line with those tastes.”

From the forthcoming debut EP, The Sorrow, The Sadness, out early 2015 on Calaveras

Produced by Donald Scully & Chains
Engineered by Donald Scully at The Voicebox Recordings
Mixed by Mike Boden
Mastered by Maor Appelbaum at Maor Appelbaum Mastering
