Polished and buffed to a mirrored gleam, chrome gives humanity what we most desire and fear -- an unflinching reflection of ourselves. Stare deep into the many mirrors of the human soul on The Cruel Earth's Caress of Chromium. This musical exploration of Group 6 on the Periodic Table unearths a quartet of elemental songs, touching on themes as diverse as reflection, identity, and the morbidity rates of earthworms. Feel the Caress of Chromium and experience your own reflection from a whole new perspective!
