Chakras is a Cincinnati based hard-rock band that incorporates elements of pop, metal, prog and punk to create a memorable, unique sound that remains accessible to the listener. Fueled by lead vocals that range from operatic to sultry, punishingly tight drums and bass, ethereal cello/keys and aggressive guitars, Chakras is a formidable combination of both high-energy and substance. The band released their debut album, “Cedric”, in the summer of 2010. Since the release, they have been touring the region in support, receiving amazing response from a continually growing, highly enthusiastic fan-base. 2014 looks to up the ante, with greater proliferation through the region, expanded radio and media exposure and new recordings on the way!  


Chakras has gelled to produce a diverse and eclectic yet surprisingly cohesive sound free from many of the stereotypes of modern rock.

Let's talk a second about Cedric. This album is not to be missed, especially if you like to snag up bands while they are still somewhat unknown. This album has some wonderful variety that will make you sing right along, stomp your foot and even punch walls at times.

Their own unique chemistry results in a sound that slams with Hard Rock’s bombast, lulls with Folk/Pop and Prog’s subtlety and shreds with Metal’s intensity.
