First released in 1981, this was Chrome's fifth longplayer. Tracks that most definitely make this (much welcomed) CD reissue a keeper are "Perfumed Metal", the total ass-kicking "Planet Strike", "Out Of Reach" (sort of reminds me of Can), "Brain On Scan" and the awesome title cut "Blood on The Moon". Loved the way that Cleopatra tags on four live songs from a live 1981 gig that Chrome had played in Bologne, Italy. When I met up with guitarist Helios Creed several years ago, he told me that in Chrome's day as an actual band - they played merely four live concerts - two in Italy and two in San Francisco and that was it. Obviously, the four bonus tracks here are from one of those two shows they played in Italy. I have seen some pricey import of a live Chrome gig at a (now) long gone independent record store like about ten years ago. But the used CD was so beat up that I had decided to pass on it. Since then, I have never seen that CD again. Excuse me while I give 'Blood on The Moon' another spin. Highly recommended.

By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 5 Sept. 2010
Format: Audio CD
Chrome the San Franciscan duo Damien and Helios blasted out synthed out guitar bliss from darker a side of the moon, an alien alkaline swamp teeming with ice on the froth of Gannymede. Killing Joke fireball angst with riffing on blissed out guitars tuned into twirling psychedelic solarised frequencies emanate. A more streamline performance than their twisted turning Half Man Machine Lips.

Crammed full of Phillip K Dick and Ballardian dystopia; themes rebound around lack of human connection, people as insects, the paranoia of growing old, the alienation of being, the curse of the wal mart dream world'the poundstretcher of the imagination, inhabiting and colonising dreams with castles of bling, palaces of machines whilst humans sell their souls in capitalist porn ships.

Emerging in the 80's it tuned Chrome into the only inhabitants on their hand built fraggle rock. They summoned an outre aura not inhabiting bright shopping malls of black fusion synth music.
Piped into the ear to destress the consumer with their consumate exquisite buy experience. This exists in the autumnal damp air of inner city dark nights. Swathes of cars with sweep past in a machine strobe, neon signs shut down and light up a sperm spouting glamour, people's breath condensed whilst trapped on trains, silently queuing to enter red light booths of their dreams.

Paranoia, ennui, feelings of shut off/shut down buck and writhe on Blood on the Moon as Chrome. It is as if they tried to make themselves accessible, smashing a hole in their alienated bleak bubble worlds, hurtling through space to San Fran Cisco, with a mission to connect. Instead they found themselves withering, life outside the bubble matched their vision why they escaped; real, all too real; thats what people wish to build their own sterile paradisical universes. They wish to escape from, not to deal with reality.

Cleopatra has screwed it up (again) in the 2014 issue: listen carefully a strange vibrating noise during "the need" around 01min 10 sec. That does not belong to the original chrome record.....and at the end of brain scan , 10 seconds are missing......this is not admissible, Cleopatra...and say that you mentioned in your review. " Blood on the Moon" restored to its original glory......lie lie lie....or if this isn't lie, it's incompetence......it's the last time i buy from you ( you have failed with " retro transmission", you have failed with " blood on the moon", you will fail again, that's for sure). What a pity!!!!!!!!

This is the 5th album proper from Chrome, originally released in 1981 and it's a nice noisy blast from an alternative history.

Like the Young Gods partying with the Fall or Skinny Puppy and Wire getting it on. Chrome aren't as catchy or extreme as any, or all, of the above but that shouldn't stop you exploring. Industrial rhythms, metallic structures (metallic, not \m/ Metallic \m/ ), fractured psychedelia and a cold harsh atmosphere permeate every track and it certainly doesn't sound like 1981! This is definitely modern and has aged incredibly well.

Will fit right in alongside Killing Joke in your collection. For newbs, think Rammestein but infinitely cooler!

Mondo Bizarro 14 Feb. 2009
By Hawklord - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Listening to "Blood on the Moon" is like being trapped in the aural equivalent of D.C. comics' Bizarro World: strange, unpredictable, surreal and nerve-wracking. By the time of "Blood on the Moon," Damon Edge and Helios Creed had refined the Chrome sonic canvas to a metallic sheen, a sound reminiscent of a nuclear power plant going critical. Creed's wildly stochastic leads and Edge's strangely erotic vocals and industrial synth noise fuse with the menacing drone of the Stench Brothers' drum & bass bravado, creating eerie soundscapes for deranged punk mutants and twisted new wave vampires. The opening track, the intensely manic "The Need," delivers an accelerated pulsing rhythm track overwhich Creed's malevolent guitar and Edge's demonic vocal and radioactive synth bursts create an orgasmic climax that is absolutely sexual. "Perfumed Metal" is just as frenetic, with Creed's flanged staccato guitar salvos and Edge's alienated, paranoid vocals creating the perfect mood for demented cyborgs lost in the new dark age of computer dominance and submission. "The Strangers" features some of Edge's creepiest lyrics and one of Creed's nastiest solos ever--like the deathscream of a melting robot. "Brain on Scan" is another standout track, a full metal jacket of shrieking industrialized noise with Edge's echoed voice swirling in the mix like some strange banshee from another world. There are, admittedly, moments of stasis and monotomy that interrupt the album's otherwise savage drive; however, even these tracks work as a kind of repetitive calm before yet another psychic assault on the nervous system. And though not as anarchically brilliant as "Alien Soundtracks" or "Half Machine Lip Moves," "Blood on the Moon" does show Chrome moving toward a more consistently satisfying compromise between arty aural dadaism and punky psychindustrialism--a sound they would more fully realize on their terminal masterpiece "3rd from the Sun."

It's a Shame! (Lilith Edition) 17 Aug. 2011
By Michael Sell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
I initially purchased this because half of the songs from this album are live versions on the Chrome Box(Cleopatra)and I wanted to have the album in its studio entirety, but to my surprise Lilith uses the same format! Every other song is a live version which makes for a completely awful dynamic, and is not the album proper! I don't understand how they can sell this under the pretense of it being "Blood on the Moon", because this is merely a compilation! It is a crying shame too, because visually the album deserves high marks, with lyrics and photos on the record's inner sleeve, and a decent graphic reproduction of the cover and back of the album, and this is not to mention the beautiful 180g vinyl and the bonus cd of the album. Why???

Wow 25 Jan. 2009
By jdizzle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first heard this when a friend bought the 'Chrome Box'(hard to come across a package like that nowadays) in 1984. The first time I heard it I thought it sucked-'not hardcore enough for me' I said. Then, about a month later, on the way to a show, he popped this album into the cassette player and whammo- I was hooked. The tracks that stuck out the most to me the most were Planet Strike and Inner Vacuum( yeah, they were good mushrooms). But the album as a whole is great. Chrome is probably the only band that both annoys me and I completely love. I highly recommend this album as both a starter for Chrome virgins and to those wishing to relive those glorious years heard only on vinyl.

Chrome - 'Blood On The Moon' (Cleopatra) 4 1/2 stars 21 Dec. 2010
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First released in 1981, as this was Chrome's fifth longplayer. Tracks that definitely make this [much welcomed] CD reissue a keeper are "Perfumed Metal", the total ass-kicking "Planet Strike", "Out Of Reach (sort of reminds me of Can), "Brain On Scan" and the title cut "Blood on The Moon". Loved the way that Cleopatra tags on four live songs from a 1981 live gig that Chrome played in Bologne, Italy. When I met up with guitarist Helios Creed a few years back, he told me that in it's original run, Chrome only played four live concerts - two in San Francisco and two shows in Italy. Obviously, this is one of those two gigs on archived CD. I've seen some import title - independent label CD of Chrome playing an entire show - but, I didn't purchase it because it was too co$tly - as now I regret it because I haven't seen it since. I've looked all over the Internet but I am unable to find it. I would know the front cover for sure. As for 'Blood On The Moon' it's highly recommended.
Brain on Scan and Planet Strike....forever 2 Sept. 2013
By Clayton J Schonberger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Oh, if only the D J's of the current era would take a few moments to "catch up" with the wall of sound Helios Creed and Damon Edge made back in the early 1980's. Just listen to the bass line of "Planet Strike" a minute. That's someone using a guitar to make noise, something many current cutting-edge musicians have forgotten how to do. And musicians--hide your lyrics in the background unless you are William Shakespere! How is a listener supposed to enjoy a song 1,251+ times over 30 years if your bad poetry is constantly laying into their consciousness? I have heard "Brain on Scan" as many times and I am to this day sad when it ends.

This album marks the high point of Chrome for me--although it was "Half Machine Lip Moves" that I learned the most from. They are increasingly polished from "Read Only Memory" into "Alien Soundtracks." "3rd From the Sun" always seemed semi-rarified for me, but I'd take the Chrome body of work over any selection or combination of music by other bands.

Fanatically...devotedly...a Chrome enthusiast.
