Product Description

13 tracks, 59 minutes. Three years in the making, Chrome Hoof's second long-player is no disappointment. An epic, genre-busting musical melee which melds heavy rock, disco, electronic, dub, and avant-garde. CD packaged in a mirror-effect gatefold wallet.

What can you say about a 12-piece doom house electro-disco metal phenomenon that dress like sacred knights from the 25th century? Relentlessly heavy, with singer Lola Olafisoye sounding like a South London sorceress having a nervous breakdown on Neptune while tribal drums, rock guitars, staccato violins, grumbling oboes and a metallic bass pound away in the background, Crush Depth is the ultimate encapsulation of this undeniable band's powers. It variously sounds like the soundtrack to a lost episode of Blake's Seven, the best disco Grace Jones never performed at, the inside of a Black Hole, and The Apocalypse.

Or, to put it simply, it sounds like the future.

We are slowly catching up with Chrome Hoof. We should not be scared.

Someone Said:

"This band are simply unlike anything else in the world...more exciting and terrifying than getting into a travelling steam fair's dodgy-looking rollercoaster without strapping yourself in..." - NME

"A psychedelic blend that stomps an eerie hinterland where Frank Zappa, Funkadelic and Magma meet...the results can be a brain-twisting mix of sophistication and brute force" - Q

"Like the bastard litter of an orgy attended by Sun Ra, Black Sabbath and ESG - and you'll wonder what you ever saw in shoe-gaze" - TANK

"If they're a visual blast, then sonically they will blow your socks of at the knees...the Hoof's rock n' Grand Guignol will render resistance futile, so prepare to be crushed" - TIME OUT

"A fabulously bizarre mix of parliament sequins 'n' psychedelic pazzaz, seamlessly punctuated with prog-inspired passages of thunderous conceit and delusional grandeur...the album as a whole is magnificently marshaled and digitalised for immaculate 21st Century consumption" - UNCUT
