A child of Neptune, J.P. Krom is a Chilean composer, singer/guitarist, and creator of Astrometal. Like many stories, his starts with a lover: a pagan mistress who gifted him with an astral chart, an irresistible invitation to the esoteric. Kings and powerful men use this device to see into the future. But to J.P. Krom it’s a tool for self-knowledge: every passion, every act of good and horror, can be understood with the map of the stars at the moment we are born. Thus Astrometal –a term coined by J.P. Krom himself– was born: a blend of astrological metaphors/concepts with the sounds and structures of metal.
