Midwest post-black metal outfit Chrome Waves have signed with M-Theory Audio. To celebrate the signing and beginning of their next chapter, the group has shared a video for their new single, “Under the Weight of a Billion Souls.”


Guitarist Jeff Wilson comments:

“In an age of 360 deals and ‘in perpetuity’ clauses, I wasn’t sure that Chrome Waves would have much interest in working with a label. With our overwhelming need for first-class international distribution and finding them to have an extremely artist-friendly approach, we were so lucky to find M-Theory Audio. Marco has an impeccable history in the metal community and we can’t wait to get to work with him and his team in 2023.”


Singer/guitarist James Benson adds:

“The first single has one particular theme and was written with it in mind – responsibility towards your fellow man. Humanity as a whole and its greed and ability to hyper focus on only our small “tribe” and remain in echo chambers with social media while our neighbors suffer through turmoil in front of our blinded ways, and those with resources make no changes to help millions in poverty. It is a stark vision of our future collapse.”
