CHINCHILLA: (1997) Horrorscope

In May 2000, CHINCHILLA signed a record deal with Metal Blade Records and about the same time they finished the recordings for their (by the time) new long player "Madness". Again they produced with Achim Köhler and the result is superb. The press reactions were excellent; especially in Germany they reached highest ratings and very good sales figures. Besides loads of headliner shows CHINCHILLA also supported Paul Di Anno for a few shows. The highlight of the year was the gig at the Wacken Open Air, the feedback from fans and press was overwhelming and the show a big success for the band.
After that show CHINCHILLA completed the song writing for the new album "The Last Millennium?" and entered the House Of Music Studios once again to record with Ingmar Schenzel this time. The mix was done by Achim Köhler, responsible for the works of bands like PRIMAL FEAR and BRAINSTORM. CHINCHILLA were able to support the album with a complete European tour together with DEMON and TAD MOROSE. The band had a few line-up changes in 2002, but got ready with the song writing in December to record the new album. "Never Change A Winning Team" - CHINCHILLA followed this rule and went again to House Of Music to record the fourth long player "Madtropolis" with Ingmar Schenzel - the mix was again handled by Achim Köhler. As a special guest CHINCHILLA invited ex-MOTÖRHEAD guitarist Fast Eddie Clarke to play a solo on one of the new songs - it turned out amazing! "Madtropolis" is fantastic Power Metal on highest level!
