Following on the heels of the special collector’s edition of CHROME BOX released by Cleopatra Records at the end of 2015 comes this long-awaited reissue of latter period albums by the hugely influential band, Chrome! Following the departure of guitarist Helios Creed, founding member Damon Edge took Chrome into a new direction, turning the spacey, proto-industrial sounds of the band’s early albums into a more song-oriented, keyboard-focused genre that would nowadays be called cold wave (Kraftwerk, early Cure). Now, for the first time ever, these seminal albums will be reissued and released together in a spectacular 11CD box set, CHROME BOX II. The set includes the complete recordings from 1983 to1995, both studio and live, featuring the stunning Dreaming In Sequence as well as the magnificent sequel to the band’s 1977 classic Alien Soundtracks, plus the mindblowing concept album The Clairaudient Syndrome and so much more! Each album comes in its own CD wallet replicating the original LP artwork plus an incredible 48-page booklet including detailed liner notes by Chrome historian Neil Martinson (based on brand new interviews with the producers and musicians who worked on these albums) as well as never before seen photos.
Chrome came to life in mid-‘70s San Francisco, founded by Damon Edge, a young iconoclastic artist with a multitude of talents and interests. After the group’s 1976 debut album, Edge met guitarist and fellow raconteur Helios Creed, and together this duo would produce some of the most groundbreaking, avant garde music by any American band of the time. Their style, a musical pastiche of noise rock, over-processed guitars, electro-industrial loops, tribal rhythms, and searing synthesized synesthesia, would go on to influence bands ranging from Nine Inch Nails to The Flaming Lips. Though Edge passed away in 1995, his music continues on finding fans and audiences with each new generation. The 11CD Chrome Box II set is a fitting tribute to one of the most forward-thinking musical minds of modern music!
