Your HomeGrown Vermont Metal Band

Crypitus is a band originally formed in 2015 and revamped in 2016 with a new line up. The founding member, Doug Friend, in collaboration with Zach Patch and Peter Snee have reworked the framework for some original 2015 Crypitus tunes as well as an arsenal of their own new songs creating an array of music. Crypitus is a Heavy, Death, Thrash and Progressive influenced band who also reaches out to pull from genres such as jazz, punk and even hardcore. When the new group came together in May of 2016 they were hellbent to tighten their sound and play out! After a few hometown shows in Rutland VT they took to take off to the rest of New England. In late November 2016 they decided to lay down some recordings to continue to extend their reach and spread their music as far as possible. With the help of Doug and Zach Norford they contrived their dream with the debut release demo titled "Exhibit 1: Prelude to the Dead World." With established hits such as Breakdown, Tundra and Thunder the aim was to create a rounded dystopian image of the world to come and how we treat the world. After some searching Crypitus found their permanent bassist, Joe Minard in 2018. Crypitus has played with notable acts such as In Flames, Lich King, Psychostick and Currents over the years & at venues like Higher Ground & Nectars in Burlington VT, The Palladium in Worcester MA, Piranha Bar Montreal QC & Geno's in Portland ME. In 2018 with help of Primrose Productions Crypitus released their thrashing single "Danger" and in 2019 they made their first album titled "Ill World (That's What you Get)" with Bluvudu Productions. After narrowly making it back from Canada in March of 2020 when the boarder closed, struggling through the year like many, saying goodbye to their long-time guitarist Pete Snee, while dealing with the lull of lockdown, Crypitus is ready once more to bring music across the east coast and beyond with the addition of a new member to be announced soon!
