"Many’s the band who claims that their music doesn’t fit into any particular genre, and a good 99 per cent of those claims are bogus – but every so often a real head-scratcher comes along. Chrome Hoof have been together for over a decade now, and they’re still unclassifiable: an 11-piece, robe-wearing, virtuoso experimental rock orchestra who turn on a sixpence from prog rock to stomping disco-funk, or from synth-pop to Sabbath-style proto-metal." – Time Out London
CHROME BLACK GOLD
"...has the subtlety of Can, the pomp of Pentagram and Sabbath, faithfully reproducing the looping musical themes of Magma and Goblin..." – Don’t Panic
There are solo performers, duos, and bands, and then there are concepts, bigger than and beyond any particular singer, central instrumentalist, style, or ego. Chrome Hoof is one such concept, an evolving organism whose singular approach spans progressive rock, electronic dance music (especially electro), metal, funk, classical music, and more. Like Sun Ra, Magma, Trans-Global Underground and Afro-Celt Sound System, Chrome Hoof is an ever-developing affair, unpredictable yet with a drive and focus that makes their music (like the aforementioned icons) truly memorable. Moreover, Chrome Hoof serve up their sonic gumbo with a truly theatrical flair evoking the spectacles of Devo, Gong, Parliament/Funkadelic, Hawkwind, and Sun Ra, transporting their audiences on a Trip Into the Beyond. The result is a one-of-a-kind, hugely entertaining, nitro-pop, electro-metal, synth-pop, sci-fi, space-disco, psyche-Dalek spectacle!
