Crejuvent will be releasing their debut EP "Time" for the summer! The band says this is one of the grooviest, heaviest, and bone grinding releases that any fan of heavy music will question into liking! The band goes into saying further about how they got together, their new music, and future activity!
1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Welp, it all started a few years ago. I was starting to feel like I needed a place for my increasingly expanding ego to roam free and loose. So I started writing songs, and when I eventually wanted to release them that’s when this project, Crejuvent, was conceived. About two years ago I released a set of demos promptly titled ‘Pretty Demos’, and this year on the 1st of July, Crejuvent will be releasing its debut ‘Time’ EP! The members consist of me, myself, and my schizophrenic alter ego.
2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?
One day the cosmos opened my mind to the wonders beyond human comprehension. I saw visions of an ever expanding multiverse, surrounded by a cascade of infinite realities. And as I journeyed through the expanding universe, life uttered a whisper – Crejuvent. I actually accidentally made the word up one day playing scrabble. When I put it in Google it came up with no results so I just claimed it.
3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?
Well I’m half Italian and half Brazilian, and I’ve been living in Liverpool, UK for the past five years. Before that I lived in the Netherlands for four years. I started the idea for Crejuvent back when I was in the Netherlands, but it’s only been in these past few years that I’ve done any actual work on it so technically Crejuvent is currently based in Liverpool. There scene here has been a bit hit or miss these past few years, but I’m glad to say things are picking up again! I’ve been going to local gigs since I first moved here and I’m now starting to see more and more new faces every time I go, more bands are starting out and trying stuff out, so it’s definitely growing! As far as recommendations, it really depends what you’re looking for. Oceanis is the one band most people will know, and they’re fantastic! They’re all fun guys, really good musicians, and they always deliver live! There’s a bit of an up and coming slam metal scene here, so if you’re into that then bands like Crepitation are ones to look out for. There isn’t too much in terms of black metal unfortunately, but there are bands like Ninkharsag who do pretty well.
4. How would you describe your style?
Ah yes, the age old philosophical question. I like it when bands get asked this because they pretty much ALWAYS say something amongst the lines of “I don’t really know, it’s sort of impossible to define us because we have such a different mix of genres”. Especially in metal, it’s hilarious.
But enough ranting. I’d describe Crejuvent’s style as a significant lack of style. It’s quite possibly the most un-cool metal ever. It’s big, it’s relentless, uninhibited, and would probably make most people feel uncomfortable.
5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?
Well, the debut ‘Time’ EP is coming out ON THE 1st OF JULY SO GET ON IT! It’s got 5 testicle-compressing tracks guaranteed to put a smile on any listener’s face! There’s going to be a lyric video coming out for the title track and a play through video for the track Code Orange and maybe in the future some other cool shit! Buy the CD, download the mp3’s, stream it, whatever, just check it out! Please! I’m…so lonely.
6. Do you have any new music in the works?
Once ‘Time’ is released I’ll probably start writing some more stuff specifically for Crejuvent. I have bits and bobs here and there, a few finished demos, I just want to see how this release works out first.
7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?
Nope. I just sort of wing it and hope for the best.
8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?
Hmm, I don’t really know. Mainly focus on this release for now, then keep doing shit like this until I either fade into absolute obscurity or until I get the courage to pull off some sort of over-the-top suicide stunt as the most devoted PR move ever been done and hope that gets me somewhere. Actually, scratch all that, I’ll keep kicking ass until Crejuvent gets me laid and then I’ll call it quits.
9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
Where CAN’T you listen to Crejuvent is the- that’s the REAL question you should be asking! And the answer to that for now is just Bandcamp and Sounccloud basically. But on the 1st of July, you’ll be able to listen to the SHINY NEW ‘Time’ EP EVERYWHERE! It’s gonna be on every single imaginable streaming/downloading service (including Spotify, iTunes, Grooveshark, Google Play, whatever!), it’s going to be downloadable and streamable through the Crejuvent’s bandcamp page at www.crejuvent.bandcamp.com (where you’ll also be able to buy physical copies for all you old men out there!), it’ll be uploaded to the band’s Soundcloud page, imbedded in the headrest of your car, I’ll make vibrating dildos that vibrate to the songs, all that fun stuff!
10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?
Where they put their car keys. If I can help them on their way to work then I know I’ve done my part right! Just kidding. The correct answer is I’d like them to remember how they lost their virginity.
