Influences:Influenced by beer, wiskey and absint. Musicaly influenced by old 80-ties bands like kreator and other thrash gods and also bands like wasp. Chainsaw mixes pure earbleeding 80 thrash with the rock and roll elements of bands like wasp.
Biography Chainsaw was formed in 1996, and off to a Spinal Tap like start including a schizophrenic drummer who suddenly disappeared. The electrocution of Magnus the bass player and the car crash he was in the same day. The collapsed lung of next drummer Don who was subject to disastrous surgery. Guitarist Yanni's hand that was smashed in combat with a concrete wall and singer Aike being infected with veteran’s disease.
In 2002 the curse was finally lifted. After a successful 'Tropical Storm Tour' in the Dutch Caribbean and the release of their single: 'Chainsaw is the Law' and very positive reviews of this in various magazines, Chainsaw signed with the Japanese label: 'World Chaos Production' for their full album: 'Smell the Saw' in 2003 and was released in 2004 and very well received. The band has by now established a solid fan base. They are performing many bloody and violent shows in Holland, Germany, Belgium and several in France and Luxemburg.
Chainsaw has made a video clip of ‘Master of fate’ and is working on another of ‘the Meat Factory’. Now they’ve finished 12 songs for a new album…
