Warhorse Chained

Warhorse Chained

Status: Active

Origin:  Cochin

Genre: Brutal Death Metal

Warhorse Chained was formed in early 2004, by vocalist Fredrich ‘Black’ Vivek and drummer Arun (currently in Kaav) with Saja and Shyam on guitars and Varun on bass. Covering bands like Obituary and Sepultura, they were the first band that marked the beginning of the metal scene in their home city Cochin, Kerala. In 2006, Shyam and Varun left the band being busy with their studies. The band came into a short hiatus, losing the two members and lack of a permenant jam room.

A few months later, the silence was finally over in early 2007, when Vivek and Arun met Divin, a guitarist who was looking for fellow musicians to form a metal band. Divin joined on guitars and soon a friend of the group, Rixon joined on bass and started jamming at the ‘old house’ jamroom behind Divin’s house.

Rixon and Arun left after a few months, and the slots were filled soon by Dino, brother of Divin on drums and David on bass. With the new line up, the band decided on sounding more heavier and started working on original sound. A few killer gigs in different cities in Kerala gathered them an underground cult following of their music. Divin left the band in 2008 with a promise of joining back again. Guitarist Bineesh joined on guitar duties.

Warhorse Chained, widely known in short as WHC, is reckoned as the pioneers of extreme metal in Kerala togather with Darkcrucifix. The band has made its mark in the local metal scene and is looking forward for more shows accross the country. They are planning to hit the stuido and release an album in 2011.
