“The grandiosity and bombast of symphonic metal can sometimes be overwhelming, but in the right hands it brings a satisfying sense of power and headbanging catharsis. Montreal’s Alpthraum have the right hands. They capably meld synthesized symphonic sweep with chug-heavy melodic death metal”

Canadian independent/self-produced symphonic Metal band Alpthraum return with a new epic and powerful sounding album!
What is Chronophage?
The album consists of eleven tracks, each one of them influenced by the concept of time, time loops, mathematics and the afterlife. The album is the most ambitious Alpthraum album to this day , which took one and a half year to be completed.
Each song from ” Chronophage” has an interesting and often unpredictable background. For example, the song “Circles” features the mathematical constant Pi (3.14159…) in the main riff from 00:35 to 00:59.. The same riff is repeated various times
