Chrome was one of the most influential experimental bands, presaging the harsh, angular, mechanistic songwriting that would become industrial music. The act's paranoid vision of a dystopian world expressed itself in sounds that recalled the late-'60s psychedelic rock of the 13th Floor Elevators shot through with a dark, sinister electricity. With the tragic passing of Damon Edge in 1995, control of the group's name and legacy was passed on to guitarist Helios Creed, and Edge's original equipment came into the possession of Tommy L. Cyborg, of Hawkwind fame. Creed now tours under a dual name and performs both Chrome songs and his equally impressive and expansively powerful solo material. Cyborg won't be on stage this time out, but Creed brings plenty of his old band's deep-space dark intensity to every performance.
