Mario Duplantier – Gojira
“Chronus blends old school heavy metal and modern rock in an intelligent and irresistible way!”
Björn “Speed” Strid – Soilwork
“When I started Soilwork, I was 17 years old. We were pretty good musicians and songwriters from the get go, but not even close to Chronus. It’s been a long time since I was this impressed by such a young band, with members ranging from 20 to 24 years old, and such a unique expression of amazing musicality. This band is ready to go global and someone better sign them before I do.”
Richard Larsson – The Night Flight Orchestra, producer at HH-Studios
“Chronus is an incredibly young and competent band that delivers heavy rock on a very skillful level. Their songs contain great melodies, big choruses and nifty bridges with interesting soundscapes. I think Chronus will go far; they have all the right tools to succeed!”
