"Stasis" (release date 01.04.2016), Khroma’s sophomore album and multi-faceted yet highly focused effort, sees the Helsinki, Finland based electro-metal group rise to the next level artistically, lyrically and politically, once again commenting on the state of our ever-widening digital environment, where access to technology can further disengage uneven power structures. Stasis is no more the norm.
From the enraged opening track ”Brace Yourself” to the harrowing anthem ”Wrong” and the epic conclusion ”Alarmists”, Khroma continues to push the boundaries of electronic alternative metal, a genre they reclaimed with their debut album Collapse in 2014. Instead of merely exploiting electronic influences or interludes, Stasis manifests the full synthesis of machine and man, live instrumentations entwined over its electronic core.
Written, produced, engineered and mixed by the band in their Helsinki and Berlin headquarters, Stasis is also the result of a tremendous independently achieved group effort. Following the release of the album Khroma will embark on an extensive one-month European tour, the longest the band has done so far.
