Kronos is a brutal death metal band from France. Their name is a reference to the titan Kronos, the father of Zeus in the greek mythology.

Lyrical subjects

The lyrics of their songs are mainly about myths, legends and historical subjects from the ancient civilizations of Rome, Greece and Egypt or from Scandinavia or even from old kingdoms belonging to barbarians.

History

Kronos was formed in 1994 in Thaon-les-Vosges (France) by Grams (14 years old), Marot (17 years old), Jeremy (17 years old) and Mike (13 years old). The band played at this point some Heavy-thrash-metal. Two years later Tems (19 years old) replaced Marot (guitar) and Kristof (18 years old) joins the band for the vocals. Kronos started then to play Death Metal music and recorded its first demo called "Outrance". In 1999, Tom (20 years old) replaces Jéremy and the band is now definitely oriented towards 'Brutal Death Metal'. The following year the recording of a new demo "Split Promo 2000" containing 4 titles is finalized.

The long awaited first album "Titan's Awakening" was released in 2001. This first edition of this album was produced by the band itself. The band has then been acclaimed by critics and got its first contract with the label Warpath Records (former "Shockwave"). A new edition of "Titan's Awakening" is released at the end of October the same year with a new cover designed by Deather (Angel Corpse, Gurkkhas, Vital Remains...) as well as a new graphical booklet.Richard (26 years old) replaces Tems and plays the lead guitar from 2003. The band signs a contract for two upcoming albums with the new Spanish label Xtreem music managed by Dave Rotten from the band Avulsed.The second album was released in 2004 and is named "Colossal Titan Strife". The band toured Europe in 2005 promoting the album. The third album was released in April 2007 and is named "The Hellenic Terror".
