Getting to Know Crypitus

Where are you from and when did you get started?

Doug: Im originally from a place called Satans Kingdom in Vermont, look it up I’m not kidding its a real place. I moved to Rutland in 2016 and Pete was my roommate, we started jamming together and found the need for a drummer. We found Zach online and Im glad we snagged him before someone else did! So this line up of Crypitus started in May of 2016. 

Pete: Crypitus is the sound of breaking bones! Doug and I started jamming together after being roommates and not being able to find musical projects. Originally I mistook Zach for another drummer friend of mine, but he turned out to be a perfect addition anyway.

Zach: I’m Zach. I’m from Mendon VT and I rock percussion for Crypitus. I started playing drums when my best friend died and left me his kit. I was like, shit, looks like I’m going to have to learn now.

Who are you and who does what in the band?

Doug: Im the Guitarist/Vocalist/Manager of Crypitus!

Pete: I’m Pete. I melt faces with some of the sickest guitar riffs ever written. I carry the rhythm end with Zach.

Zach: Im the percussionist for this act!

How would you best describe the sound?

Doug: I would describe it as a Thrashy Blackened Death Metal sound with a progressive twist. 

Pete: We’re a fusion of death, thrash, and old school heavy metal with lots of extra bits of jazz sprinkled on top.

Zach: I think I would classify Crypitus as psychedelic thrash metal. We pull from a lot of influences. Crypitus is the sound of breaking bones.

Dream rock moment (real or not)?

Doug: I took my first stage dive in Maine this weekend, I intend to do more!

Pete: My dream moment would be hanging out backstage at a festival we’re playing at and seeing the guys from Mastodon just come up and chill with us and drink some beer.

Zach: I guess my dream moment would be our first headliner, at some stadium, with thousands and thousands of maniacs screaming for Crypitus. It’ll happen.

Still got day jobs?

Doug: Yes! I’m a Pharmacy Technician, been doing it since I was 18. 

Pete: I work as a car detailer at a car dealership. It’s ironic because my car is fucking filthy. 

Zach: Yeah, I work full time with autistic folks in their homes, helping them to live a mostly independent life.

Any regrets?

Doug: I try not to regret but there’s plenty of moments in my life that I would use the time differently. More productively I would say. 

Pete: I regret being in a serious relationship in high school that kept me from jamming with people sooner.

Zach: Regrets? Yeah I’ve fucked up plenty in the past, but as soon as I’m done repairing myself, Crypitus goes worldwide. As far as Crypitus goes, I have no regrets. I couldn’t imagine a band to have so much in so little time. 

Buzzkillz – Scum Of The Earth

Debut album from Helsinki Finland act, Buzzkills. 12 tracks of punk/punkbilly from up near the top of the word.

As always, it thrills me to get to hear bands from all around the world. Buzzkills is no exception. Here I am in sunny SoCal and listening to a band from damn near the other side of the world. I’ve never been to Finland, but here I am participating in a little bit of their culture, by way of an offering into our common culture of music.

Buzzkillz deliver a solid blend of rock, punk, and rockabilly. They’re an interesting ensemble in that they are a four-piece rock and roll band with the tradition lineup of vocals, guitar, bass, drums. Where the band differs is in their use of double bass as opposed to electric. The overall effect reminds me a bit of The Peacocks, but, well, different.

Tracks mid to uptempo, with a blend of Western rock / cowpunk, reminisicient in a way of Social Distortion, or perhaps more Mike Ness solo. The tracks are sung in English, so as to be more accessible to a larger audience.

The band indicates that they will have new material coming out at the end of the year, so go check out their debut and get in on the ground floor. Tell all your friends that you heard ‘em before they were cool!

Stream Death At My Door now at
Death At My Door features ten tracks of raging, bloodcurdling and raucously rebellious fury showcase the very best from this roadharderned group of beautiful misfits. The haunting vocal stylings of Kenda Legaspi soar seamlessly over Chuck Coles’ buzzsaw sharp guitar lines and the ragtime gospel organs/keys of the Reverend McGinty; all the while held together by the hard-driving stand-up double-bass slapping rhythms of Sean McNab and the impossibly violent percussive assault of Sandro Sanchioni on drums. From the defiant and empowering “Sticks & Stones” and the incredibly anthemic “Til Death Do Us” to the circle-pit inducing “Tomorrow May Never Come” and the eerily heartwrenching ballad “My Soul To Keep”, Death At My Door is a diverse and addictive album from a genre-defying band who are at the very top of their game… Don’t sleep on this one, because you never know what’s waiting for you just outside your door.
