“Divine Authority Abolishment” is Chained and Desperate’s second album whose style is often compared to that of their fellow countrymen Rotting Christ as well as others such as Dissection, Enslaved and Primordial. No mistake should be made however; CHAINED AND DESPERATE’s style is as original as it can get with the band members’ influences ranging from Bathory and Death to Candlemass, Manilla Road and Manowar.

“This album is worth your time and even this is not an old school Black Metal release, it has a lot more than what this subgenre offered in the past.”
