Live på Backstage scenen 13 Januari 2018

CHUGGER is a groove metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden, successfully fusing the signature Gothenburg death metal sound with the groove of American southern metal. The product is pure metal free from bullshit.

CHUGGER released their debut album ’Scars’ during the winter of 2013, featuring songs ’Art of Science’ and a rerecording of the first demo ’Bleed’ among others. Following the release, the band voyaged across Europe to promote the album with their ’Scars Over Europe Tour’ in 2014. The tour was widely successful and CHUGGER received excellent reviews on their live performances, especially for the energy they displayed on stage.

After an intensive period in the studio, CHUGGER returned with their new album ’Human Plague’ (Rambo Music/GAIN Music Entertainment/Sony Music) in 2015. Sweden Rock Magazine wrote ”This is an album full of power and energy” and ”brilliant guitar play”. Close-Up Magazine felt the album ”sets the emotional bar to ’right in the face’!'” and compared the band to the American equivalent Lamb of God. CHUGGER followed the album release with a European tour called ’Spreading The Disease Tour’, which took them across most of Europe, including Spain, Italy and England.

In early 2017, CHUGGER released ’Grinder’ and the response has been nothing short of spectacular. The song was produced by Robert Kukla of Studio Haga, mixed and mastered by Christian Svedin. ’Grinder’ was simultaneously released as a video brought to life by René U. Valdes and his Greenworks Television, together with a great crew of talented makeup and gore artists.
