Album Spotlight : Chrom - Peak And Decay
One of the most popular German Melodic-Electro-bands returns. On the long-awaited new album “Peak And Decay”, CHROM create a perfect fusion of club-compatible beats, anthemic tunes, feeling and power. CHROM always had that certain something that would elevate them from the mass of Future- and Synth-Pop-groups … a perfect hand for gripping melodies, a powerful voice and original electronic sounds with a lot of drive. On the highly anticipated third album “Peak And Decay”, CHROM are expertly evolving this trademark style, while delivering their most versatile release to date. Alongside the tried and tested club-smashers in the vein of the advance single “Regret & Testify”, hit-tunes which CHROM often tend to spice up with a refreshingly harsh edge, they have also thrown new-wavey mid-tempo tunes like the groovy “Heavenly” or heartfelt ballads like the stirring “Farewell Letter” into the mix, this time around. The titular peaks and decays of a sonic curve also stand as a symbol for the ups and downs of each and every existence, which CHROM interpret in 11 songs, sometimes emotional, sometimes employing brute force, sometimes sleazy but always resonating with the listener. “Peak And Decay” will also be released as a deluxe double CD featuring a bonus remix album (with contributions from Blutengel, Lord Of The Lost, Hocico, Erdling, Accessory, Massive Ego and many more.) Life is dancing to an electronic beat... and CHROM's urban club-Pop is the soundtrack!
