The Chrome European Tour kicked off Tuesday in Munich at Strom. It's great to see Helios Creed has taken up with Chrome once again, as their influence is a vast web just under the skin of modern music that extends from weirdo synth stuff (from Wizzard Sleeve all the way to stuff like Soft Moon) and beyond the great wall of pop, and finally reaching to industrial and metal music.

After landing back on Earth a couple of years ago and playing the HoZac Blackout Fest in 2013, Chrome seems to have caught fire again, as Helios stretched his back, and now is ready to take on Europe. With all the reissues popping up on various labels, the first four were reissued over the past 4 years: The Visitation, Alien Sound Track, Half Machine Lip Moves, Red Exposure and ultimately Half Machine From The Sun, The Lost Chrome Tracks From '79-'80 the double LP that came out last November that has a trove of previously unreleased Chrome material during their late 70s period. Even still to this day, they are one of the most criminally underrated bands in the history of moodier music, so Euro Dudes and Dudettes, please don't miss this chance to catch Chrome live and in person.
