Home / Biography / Chinchilla



One of several majestic-sounding power metallic bands to hire a significantly less than majestic (help to make that downright silly) moniker, Germany’s oddly named Chinchilla were formed in 1988 by guitarist Udo Gerstenmeyer and made their debut using the Zero Mercy EP 2 yrs later, and then disband nearly immediately. Gerstenmeyer were able to briefly resurrect the group in 1994, documenting another EP called WHO’S Who with vocalist Martin Obermeier, bassist Michael Vetter, and drummer Mike Kuhner, but another four years would move before Chinchilla released an effective debut by means of 1998’s Horrorscope. Marc Peters (bass) and Steffen Theurer (drums) got joined the music group at that time, and keyboardist Marc Steck and brand-new vocalist Thomas Laasch had been added with time for Chinchilla’s second record — and initial for brand-new label Metal Cutter — Madness, which found its way to the entire year 2000. This lineup continued to be steady through 2002’s THE FINAL Millennium, which remained accurate to the group’s mid-paced make of melodic power steel, but more employees shakeups were coming, and new people Josh Näberle (bass), Artur Diessner (keyboards), and Criss Schwinn (drums) had been released by 2003’s intricate concept record, Madtropolis.
