""Take Your Place" Feature Album Review - Scene Magazine - 24 September 2009"

Pity the young man who joins a hard rock group in Australia. It can be a tough gig, with record labels and listeners requiring plenty of arm-twisting to take notice of a talented band. And that’s a shame when you have an act the quality of Chamberland floating about the scene. “Take Your Place” is the first in a series of concept EPs by Chamberland and it’s fair to say that it kicks like a steroid-munching mule. Chamberland’s trick is to be informed by their classic influences but not dominated by them; so you have Sabbath and Deep Purple stripped down, rebuilt and hot-rodded for a new generation. It’s exhilarating stuff, matching raw aggression to a striking precision, with perhaps “Mirror” sticking out for its unstoppable swing and “Unanswered” building to a delirious cacophony over a sharp five minutes. Excellent stuff. - Matt Shea - Scene Magazine - 24 September 2009

Bio

Chamberland are an independent four-piece original hard rock outfit from Brisbane featuring Ross Dowling as lead vocalist and rhythm guitar, Scott Martin on drums, Shannon O’Leary on lead guitar and Doug Rout on bass.

As a permanent fixture in the Brisbane original live music scene for the best part of a decade, the band has established a strong and loyal following.

While their earlier work highlights a band still finding their own sense of self, Chamberland’s latest EP release, Take Your Place, heralds a slightly new direction.

Working with renowned Brisbane producer Caleb James the latest work showcases a more mature Chamberland embracing their rock roots and delivering a dynamic recording that will define the band as one to watch in the later stages of 2009 and 2010.

With tones of social commentary portrayed on the EP in narrative style, Chamberland is a band willing to try something new to bring out a message of change and hope through brutal and honest rock.

Having played more gigs then they can count, it is through their live shows that Chamberland prefer to be known for. Always keen to deliver a knockout performance Chamberland are a band that leave everything on the stage, forging a reputation as a must see live act in the Brisbane music scene.

Live Review
“combining smooth somewhat Cog-like verses with hard rock instrumentation, at times producing a raw and uncompromising racket that’s reminiscent of Black Sabbath.”
