Timeless. There’s no other word better describing the music coming from this Swedish four-piece. Having grown up on bearded swamp blues (ZZ TOP, LYNYRD SKYNYRD), glam flamboyance (KISS, DAVID BOWIE, ALICE COOPER, T-REX) and menace riffing (AC/DC, DEEP PURPLE, TED NUGENT) there’s not a doubt in the world that CHILLIHOUNDS learned the swagger of rock’n’roll in the best of ways. Forming in Gothenburg in 2003 the band take its time perfecting their retrospective groove seldom heard this side of the seventies. In 2005 all the pieces of the puzzle seem to match as CHILLIHOUNDS records the demo “No Fashion, Just Rock’n’Roll”. The recording includes highlights such as “1975” and “Dancing Devils” and earns the band - along with their sweat drenched performances - a reputation among independent labels. Italian company Nicotine Records releases “The Album” in April of 2007. It is a ten track onslaught of furious licks and unforgettable melodies. A mere four months later the first pressing is sold out, much thanks to the overwhelming critical acclaim “The Album” receives from press around the world. Sweden Rock Magazine awards “The Album” 9 out of 10 points - “If there’s any justice in the world, CHILLIHOUNDS ought to be an international hit”. Webzine Agony Zone states: “CHILLIHOUNDS performs as if their life depends upon it”. German magazine OX gives “The Album” 7 out of 10 - “Finally a singer who can sing, instead of sounding just like a V8 engine”. And so on. At the moment the group is writing material for their forthcoming album “Vol. II - Welcome to the Show”. Some tracks are already recorded and has been performed to great praise. CHILLIHOUNDS makes no bones about their burning love for energetic classic hard rock and is now often compared to similar act CLUTCH.
In the end of 2013, CHILLIHOUNDS dissolved after playing music for more than a decade.
