Khroma are a band from Finland that mixes extreme metal with alternative, darkstep, and electro groove and this is a review of their 2014 album "Collapse" which was released by Inverse Records.
The album starts out with spoken word samples before going into a heavier extreme metal direction along with some aggressive vocals and a few seconds later electronic music sounds are added into the music and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and you can also hear some melody in certain sections of the recording.
As the album continues the band stick to their extreme metal being mixed with electronic music sound as well as bringing in elements of groove and progressive metal and after awhile melodic vocals are added into certain sections of the recording and on a couple of the tracks they bring in small amounts of spoken word parts and clean playing and on the last song a brief use of melodic female vocals are utilized.
With this album Khroma combine extreme and mainstream metal with alternative, darkstep and electro groove to create a sound of their own and while it is not something I listen to on a regular basis, I still feel this band is very good at what they do.
Song lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Khroma are a very decent sounding mixture of metal, alternative, darkstep and electro groove and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Keep Your Whole" "Cypher" "Distorted" and "The martyr Acts". 7/5 out of 10.
