CROMONIC: Former FRETERNIA Members Bounce Back With New Project

CROMONIC, the new Swedish band featuring former members of FRETERNIA along with drummer Ronny Milianowicz (DIONYSUS, ex-SINERGY), are in the process of recording their first promotional CD, entitled "Rebirth". A May release is expected. In the meantime, you can listen to a few samples of the band's recent songwriting/recording sessions at their official web site.

In a recent interview with, CROMONIC guitarist Patrik von Porat (ex-FRETERNIA) explained the band's decision to start afresh with a new name and sound.

"FRETERNIA is a finished chapter in my life," he said. "Bo [Pettersson, bass] left FRETERNIA when they were a demo band and I left short after the recording of 'Warchants & Fairytales'. CROMONIC is a band started by me and Bo and the sound is definitely not the same as FRETERNIA. The choice of Tomas [Wäppling, rhythm guitar] and Pasi [Humppi, vocals] became natural since they are good musicians with experience and great ideas. Of course, Pasi's voice will remind you of FRETERNIA but the music is not the same."
