German death metal band RISE OF KRONOS have just released their new album Council of Prediction via MDD Records. and this week Dave Griffiths sat down to have a chat with them about the album.
RISE OF KRONOS emerged from the former Hamburg death metallers Surface in 2021 with an identical line-up. After 11 years, it was simply time to open a new chapter and at the same time to continue the previous legacy, or rather to put it on a new level. In terms of content, the band now focuses more on Greek mythology and Hellenic philosophy – and named themselves after the title of their full-length debut from 2015: Rise Of Kronos.
Stylistically, Rise Of Kronos offer gloomy, modern and straightforward death metal that does not deny itself influences from progressive metal, Swedish death and even hardcore, but all of which are subordinate to the brute arrangements.
