Album Notes
Remember when alternative rock meant something? Chrysalis brings the passion and innovation of classic alternative bands like The Cure and Soundgarden wrapped in a new, modern experience - drawing comparisons to artists as diverse as A Perfect Circle, Jeff Buckley, and The Muse. Their non-comprising approach blends imaginative lyrics against a musical landscape that combines dark alternative, heavy rock, and electronic elements. The result is music that's visually evocative, almost soundtrack-like, with an emotional intensity that draws listeners into their own soul-searching. What stands out in their layered sound, however, are the soaring vocals and end-of-the-spectrum dynamics - moving through heavy, guitar-driven, rhythms to ethereal melodic passages seamlessly.

Underneath all the vivid textures and moods, mature, meaningful, songwriting ultimately holds the foundation for their sonic explorations. They investigate subject matter that is self-examining and socially challenging, drawing from their own experiences with relationships, human cruelty, and cultural disconnects.

Having formed in the ethnically diverse Washington, D.C., area, Chrysalis brings an outsider perspective to rock. The members' immigrant roots range from Indonesia, Guatemala, and the Czech Republic. This diversity is the catalyst for their unique sound - not just a band that talks about it but actually lives it.

And other than the title cut my fav is's positively Prime!

This CD blows my mind and chills explode
This album sounds amazing Chrysalis. I heard about you guys through a 2005 Six Points Music Festival Podcast and Melissa from the committee helped me pinpoint your sound and band name. Everytime I hear this record, I think of similarities between Perfect Circle and Chevelle but definitely a unique twist and I love the album art. J.B.E. awaits you to contact us or let us contact you. Our website is I hope u guys live the rock n' roll life because this album sure will get you there.
