Hailing from Helsingborg, Sweden, Chronus is an exalted quartet formed in 2015 and led by the Baron. Young, fresh and visionary, they carry the metal torch with astonishing maturity. Delivering a majestic performance filled with striking melodies and hard-hitting riffs, Chronus have been compared to the likes of Mastodon and Gojira. Vocalist/guitarist the Baron, dressed in white, embodies a voice reminiscent of Ozzy Osbourne, complementing the work of his three black-clad associates.
October 28th, 2017 marks the official European release of Chronus’ self-titled debut album on Ellefson Music Productions, aka EMP LABEL GROUP, the label of legendary Megadeth bassist David Ellefson. (With a North American release tentatively planned for 2018.) After a well-received performance at this year’s Sabaton Open Air, the band are currently preparing for a Scandinavian tour supporting Soilwork and The Unguided.
Additionally, the band have inked a deal with Die Crawling Management, helmed by Megadeth drummer Dirk Verbeuren and his wife, former Nuclear Blast publicist, and professional music photographer Hannah Verbeuren, both firsthand witnesses of Chronus‘ astounding growth since their inception.”
In order to spread rapture upon the people, Chronus ceremoniously convert their audience in a relentless conquest to take on the World. Join their voyage to the City of Light!

Tour promo video:
David Ellefson – Megadeth “Chronus is a bright, shining addition to the future of Metal. We’re proud to welcome them to the EMP FAMILY.”
Dirk Verbeuren – Megadeth “Chronus is the complete package: truly great people whose excellent musicianship and natural sense of structure and melody magnify their heartfelt music. These attributes are all the more impressive considering their young age. Anyone giving Chronus a chance is privileged to witness the beginning of what will without a doubt be a long and prosperous career!”
Björn “Speed” Strid – Soilwork “When I started Soilwork, I was 17 years old. We were pretty good musicians and songwriters from the get go, but not even close to Chronus. It’s been a long time since I was this impressed by such a young band, with members ranging from 20 to 24 years old, and such a unique expression of amazing musicality. This band is ready to go global and someone better sign them before I do.”
