Crypitus' Demo Takes Them Places

Crypitus is a band to mix things up, after forming in 2015, with a revision in 2016, the band had a good source of how they would take themselves, in the ways of band mates and musically. Thus, their combination of heavy, death, thrash, and black metal influences, as well as jazz, punk and hardcore elements, all would come together, for a demo reel of material, leading for even greater chances, opportunities, and much more fun and future plans! With that, the band got together to talk about all these matters, if not more than that even.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Joe: Crypitus has been around for like a year or two. I'm a recent addition to the band after a friend introduced me.

Zach: When I joined, Doug and Pete were already playing together. I was desperately searching the internet for musicians to jam with, and Pete was the first to respond, with Doug in tow.

Pete: Doug and I were roommates and started jamming together to songs he had written. We decided to try finding a drummer and Zach popped up on Facebook.

Doug: So I first started to form the idea for Crypitus before I knew these guys, my friend from high school was my metal partner in crime and drummer but things just didn’t work. When Pete started playing my tunes I decided to give it another go. So we found Zach managed to eat two bassists and play shows all over New England.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Joe: Doug takes credit for the name. Its the sound of breaking bones!

Zach: Crypitus is the sound of breaking bones.

Pete: It's Latin for the sound broken bones make.

Doug: When I was learning wildness first aid my teacher exclaimed to me out the blue “Do you know what would be a sick metal band name? Crypitus it’s the sound of breaking bones!” I was sold immediately.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Joe: We hail Rutland, Vermont. I'm not sure about local bands and the music scene I don't get out much.

Zach: Headquarters is in Mendon, VT. Mendon has no scene, however Rutland, which has the same zip code, is currently being revived; thanks to our lovely record store.

Pete: We are from Rutland, Vermont. There's a very small music scene here.

Doug: I believe there’s only three active metal bands in the Rutland area, Crypitus, NO SOUL and Humdinger and The Bucksnort.

4. How would you describe your style?

Joe: Proggy thrash metal.

Zach: Style? I try to act like a clown. Not a scary clown, a funny one. As for our music, I'd say we're a slightly progressive psychedelic thrash mixture.

Pete: Progressive death thrash with some jazz on top.

Doug: Thrashy Blackened Death metal with a twist!

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

Joe: We have a demo. Its pretty cool.

Zach: Just our tip... I mean the demo. Don't expect anything. Just listen to it. We try our hardest to make music that sounds like nothing anyone has ever played before.

Pete: We have a three song demo out now. People can expect tasty riffs and buttery solos.

Doug: Our demo "Exhibit 1: Prelude to the Dead World" is a good introduction to our music.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Joe: We are working on it.

Zach: We have soooo much new music to release to the world. And there's always songs being written.

Pete: We have a three song demo out now. People can expect tasty riffs and buttery solos.

Doug: We will be releasing a new song this winter!

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Joe: We have a tour next year.

Zach: We have a few local shows and one out of state coming in the new year,but we're working on putting our big tour together.

Pete: We have some shows booked for next year and a tour planned for June.

Doug: We have a seven day tour with our good friends in An Unction in Braille in the works for June.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Joe: World domination.

Pete: See as far as we can take it.

Doug: Keep doing what we love.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?


Doug: Also, iTunes, CDBaby, and more!

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Joe: I hope they remember they like us and listen to us more.

Zach: The drums, of course. But seriously, I really hope that our sound will be unique and catchy enough to be memorable.

Pete: I hope the riffs get stuck in their heads.

Doug: Crypitus; it’s the sound of breaking bones.
