CRONOS COMPULSION was formed in Denver in October 2021 by drummer/synth player Jon Linksey and guitarist/vocalist Wil Wilson who were subsequently joined by bassist/backing vocalist Addison Herron-Wheeler following a one-off live performance. That year saw the release of their Reject Humanity demo, followed by their debut EP, Cursed And Decaying, released through Caligari Records. 2022 saw the band performing regularly in their hometown and regionally, including playing at Decibel Magazine’s Denver Metal & Beer pre-fest, as well as touring the West Coast and Southwest, and saw the release of a split with hometown act SOTSWOTW on Alchemical Annihilation Records.
Having since honed their brutal delivery, CRONOS COMPULSION keeps things as heavy as possible on their new EP, Malicious Regression. With five new movements, the band incorporates jagged riffage and elements of ambient noise and other dissonant sounds into their low-end doom-shrouded death metal assault. Malicious Regression was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Austin Minney at All Aces Studios, and completed with artwork by Lucas Valtenbergs (Rusted Winds), photography by Julius Garrido, and layout by Ignacio Brown.
