Check out what the press is saying about Focus On The Center:
"The production quality is flawless as the whole thing just sounds huge. There’s something here for everyone; some chugging heavy metal guitars and drums, some prog noodling and some electronic samples that sound rather fantastic." -Metal Newzhttp://bit.ly/1dCyhsz
"Indie's Metal Monarchs; in less than thirty minutes of music, CHRYSALIS manages to push the boundaries of genre even more, with the song order arranged to be a perfect journey." -MXDWN http://bit.ly/1jyeKPg
"A soundscape of brutal imagery and butchering guitar lines caressed by beautiful vocals and pounding rhythms that leave you breathless but diving in for more." -Pittsburgh Music Magazine http://bit.ly/1co3ZxD
"This is not an album for kids who listen to metal. This is for the adults… Extremely complex, smart, and has twists and turns in every song." -MusicUG http://bit.ly/LNy2UJ
Boasting an inspiring and eclectic sound that sets them apart from their contemporaries, CHRYSALIS will appeal to fans of various rock, hard rock, and metal sub-genres. Focus On The Center was recorded by John Miller and Kris Comeaux (Red Jumpsuit Apparatus,Lorene Drive), produced by John Miller, and mixed/mastered by Danny Concho (formerly of The Waiting Hurt).
CHRYSALIS formed in Barstow, CA in 2003. In 2006, CHRYSALIS released a full-length, self-titled symphonic metal influenced album at the height of the emo and post-hardcore scene. The 2006 release not only charted as one of the top all time sellers in the Gothic Metal genre on CDbaby, but also found a rabid foreign audience as streams in Europe steadily increased.
In addition to heightened sales, CHRYSALIS earned a spot on the Vans Warped Tour in 2009. Following the tour, the band shared the stage with the likes of Agent Orange, TSOL, A Day to Remember, Powerman 5000, Fear Before, Heavy Heavy Low Low, and The Apex Theory.
