Riff Police! Pull Over! #99: Chrome Is Burning Vs Shokran!
Alessandra Italy Metalcore act Chrome Is Burning like to cross over into other styles with their sound and their debut “Age Of The Fallen Gods” in 2014 does exactly that. Citing influences in Born Of Osiris, Veil Of Maya and The HAARP Machine you might not expect them to have a heavy electronic vibe on new single “Far From Home“. A solid and brutal track of Industrial blended Death Metal, it caught us completely by surprise with its quality. Sounding strangely familiar, underneath the surface we recognized riffs from “Pray The Martyr“, from Russian brutes Shokran. It is the second track on their 2014 album “Supreme Truth“, a debut full length and a critically acclaimed one to boot which saw the DJentlemen who originally started out as a solo project from guitarist Dmitry Demyanenko evolve into a full band. But don’t just take our word for it, check it out for yourself. Influenced? Without a doubt! Episode #99 on the 9th April? What are the chances of that?!
