Melbourne, Australia-based Kromosom is en-route to invade the U.S. once again, as their Nuclear Reich 2013 tour commences this week.
Beginning in Boston this Friday, May 17th, Kromosom will romp down the East Coast alongside Nomad for ten shows, including a stop at this year’s Maryland Deathfest, then continuing south through New Orleans. Then Nomad drops off the tour and Frenzy comes on board with Kromosom for an additional eight dates of rampaging live action, kicking off with two shows at this year’s Chaos In Tejas in Austin, the tour then wrapping clockwise up the West Coast.
This week Cvlt Nation posted a new Sonic Cathedrals mixtape curated by the Kromosom faction. BrooklynVegan is also still hosting a stream of Live Forever.
Born in the smoldering wake of defunct crust acts Schifosi and Pisschrist, and featuring current members of Leprosy, Bloody Hammer, Fuil Na Seanchoille and Nuclear Death Terror, Kromosom released Live Forever via Southern Lord in January. The fifteen-track assault — the band’s first CD release — captures all of Kromosom’s material previously only available on vinyl, with fifteen boasting fifteen entirely unhinged, filthy tracks, barely touching the twenty-three minute realm, all mastered for maximum pandemonium by Jack Control (World Burns to Death, Severed Head of State). If this doesn’t get you raging it’s time to hang up your boots and join the rest of the sheep.
