Today Chronilus popped back to #1, still, after more than a half a year since the release of Threshold, having bobbed around in the top 5 all year, usually at or near #1. The album has proven itself for seriously long road trips involving mountains, trees, rivers and volcanoes.
Chronilus has returned to the #1 spot on Reverbnation’s World Music chart for Seattle, as enthusiasm for this year’s album, Threshold, shows signs of outlasting trends. With music designed to transcend centuries and unite continents, Chronilus is becoming the sound of home for many.
So far it’s all 5-star reviews at Amazon for the new Chronilus album, Threshold. Here’s what Emmy Award-winning composer and engineer Jay Kenney of Seattle’s Audio Logic Studio has to say about it: “Listening to “Threshold”, Chronilus’s first full-length CD, is an aural journey. Truly blending old and new, the group weaves a complex web of sound and song. From the clarion vocals of singers Caera Aislingeach and Sonia MJ to the deep rhythmic pulses of Bone Deep’s djembe, you will find timbres and stories that will please the mind and the ear. Caera’s Celtic harp is the perfect counterpoint to Manfred More’s artful, psychedelic guitar work. Sonia’s keyboard pads and accents support the music in every way. It can’t hurt that every member of the group is a multi-instrumentalist. Caera doubles on percussion and sings n Gaelic, Sonia adds keyboard bass, viola, congas and percussion. In additional to assorted percussion, Bone Deep plays bass guitar and lays in a hypnotic banjo groove to “Brigid”. Manfred’s six string offerings are both acoustic and electric.
A well rounded effort, “Threshold” is a nice ride. Pop it in and enjoy it!”
Celebrating the solstice, Bone Deep the Bard is out sunbathing with a banjo by the river at the moment, getting inventive with some old Irish and Scottish traditionals to crank through the chronilizer for your delight at future shows. May your lives reach new peaks under this solstice sun.

Chronilus regained the number one position today on Reverbnation’s World Music chart for Seattle, as enthusiasm for their recent album, Threshold, continues to spread, largely by word of mouth. This is as much an acknowledgement of the power of listeners like yourself as it is the special attributes of this music. Thank you Chrono-Nuts!

The sun is coming out brilliantly here in Snohomish County, Washington, home of Chronilus. Fruit tree blossoms are already bursting. Friends of the band are already inviting us to set up outdoor shows on their nearby acreage soon. And it may even come to pass that a second Chronilus member will have incredible acreage to dwell upon soon. An offer has been made on 8 acres of riverfront, half forested and half horse pasture, where seasonal floods bathe the soil with nutrients. White sandy beaches line the stream, and 200 acres of railroad land wait straight across the shallows for exploration on horseback. The song video opportunities on this land are exquisite. Please wish us well on this proposed acquisition; we are very, very, very, very close. 😀
