Crypitus Interview - TheMetGodsMeltDown

 

MM: Which two tracks would you play me  to introduce us to your Band 

Zach: "Out of Line" and "Danger". They pretty much sum it up as far as our sound goes. 

Pete: I’d say Danger and United Divide are pretty defining. 

Joe: Out of Line and Symphony #1 are great tunes. 

Doug: “Thunder” and “Symphony #1” for sure. Thunder catches all of our groove and speed parts and Symphony is just a solid instrumental. 

MM: Can you give us details on tours/festivals for the rest of the year and going into 2020 

Zach: We just played a couple of awesome festivals but for the rest of the year, we only have a few shows around New England. This weekend, on 9/21, we're releasing our first album, "Ill World (That's What You Get)" in Plattsburgh NY. After that we have a show in Winooski VT on 10/13 and a private show at Casa Crypitus. We head to Jewett City CT on December 14 and maybe one in Canada the day before but that's about it for the year. 

Doug: We also have a gig in Sunderland MA on 11/31 and have plans for Holyoke MA this year too! 

MM: What can we expect from Crypitus live 

Zach: You can expect a lot of Shenanigans and tomfoolery as well as a very energetic and enthusiastic stage presence, unorthodox drum stuff and cool guitar riffage. Maybe some clowns too. 

Pete: Plenty of headbanging and running around. We have a lot of energy on stage and make it a lot of fun for the audience. 

Joe: Moshing, cool music and a fun time. 

Doug: Headbanging, thrashing around. We encourage a good time. 

MM: Can u tell me what do you like best about touring And worst? 

Zach: My favorite part about touring is that no matter where we go, the metal scene is like a brotherhood. Every band seems to want to support every other band. What I really dislike about touring is that I miss my dog terribly when we're not home. 

Pete: The best part of touring is going to new places that still feel like home. The metal scene everywhere seems to embrace everyone no matter where you’re from. Our friends we’ve made is the best part of touring around. The worst part is long car rides but music is always a-blarin when we’re drivin. 

Joe: Best part of touring is seeing new places, old friends, and playing for people. Worst part is long car drives. 

Doug: I love the road, seeing new places and meeting new people. The shows and the bonds we make with people makes me happy. I’m not a fan of city traffic though. 

MM: Who would be your ultimate bands to tour with 

Zach: I'd love to tour with Between the Buried and Me. I've been told we’d fit well with Voivod too. 

Pete: If Dweezil Zappa toured with anyone I’d want to tour with him. Between the Buried and Me, Intervals, and Plini. 

Joe: I'd like to tour with Primus not that we fit in with them. 

Doug: Throw us on a package with Voivod and Death Angel please. 

MM: With so many Bands out there..How do you intend to stand out from the others? 

Zach: We do whatever we can to make the Crypitus experience memorable. People tend to remember a clown in a top hat. 

Pete: We have a very unique sound. We’re all fans of a lot of different styles of music so we each add our own influences to it. 

Joe: I just try to make decent music and have a fun time doing it. 

Doug: Ultimately I think it’s important to make good music that doesn’t sound like what’s going on right now. A thrash/death influenced band with a modern kick is what we strive to be. 

MM: When did you first realise you had such a musical talent and do you remember your first ever performance 

Zach: I've never really considered myself to be that talented. I'll never forget my first show. I was in highschool and there were a bunch of girls there and they screamed a lot. I felt really special. 

Pete: I started piano when I was 5 or so and played for a few years. I wanted to play guitar because it was cooler than the piano and I just picked out by ear some songs I knew. I learned how to read tablature around 13 and just progressed from there. My first performance was a high school talent show where I played along to a My Chemical Romance song. It was my first time playing a half stack and it was awesome. 

Joe: I learned how to play trumpet in middle school. My first performance was with this band at Max Cap in Chicopee, MA 

Doug: It all started with a burning desire to learn guitar I couldn't bring myself to put it down. So when I was in 7th grade I decided to get a band together and time to perform at the talent show for the school. Probably two weeks before our performance everyone backed out so I decided that I would play a cover of Black Sabbath - War Pigs all by myself. It was a big moment for me honestly because that’s the first time I encountered the stage and I realized that stage fright wasn’t a problem I’d face. 

MM: What's the most memorable concert you've been to (other than your own) and why? 

Zach: I got to catch the Between the Buried and Me "Colors" 10 year anniversary tour. It was the coolest thing ever. 

Pete: Seeing Blink 182 and My Chemical Romance was amazing. They suspended Travis Barker 50 feet in the air during a drum solo. 

Joe: Haven't been to a lot of concerts but i saw Between the Buried and Me with Pete and Zach and it was an awesome time. 

Doug: Ah man that’s not fair; I’ve seen plenty of great shows but I can’t say I’ve been to a show as stacked as Anthrax/Testament/Death Angel in Clifton Park NY. That was the ultimate thrash show. 

MM: What do you feel has been your biggest accomplishment so far with Crypitus? 

Zach: Releasing our album feels like a big accomplishment after waiting a whole year after recording for it to get finished. The 2 festivals we played this year were quite fulfilling too. 

Pete: Playing RPM Fest was a great experience. Definitely the biggest crowd we’ve had in a while and it felt good to turn some heads. Putting out a professionally recorded album is really cool too. 

Joe: Playing at RPM fest and releasing an album 

Doug: Releasing our first album is the biggest thing for me. 

MM:  Which are your Two favorite  albums of all time and what they have meant to you personally 

Zach: I just have 1. Between the Buried and Me's Colors changed my life forever the first time I heard it. That is the epitome of awesome in my own musical taste. 

Pete: I’m going to do top 3: Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, Colors by Between the Buried and Me, and Hot Rats by Frank Zappa. 

Joe: Dethalbum 1 by Dethklok because it was the first album i bought, & And Justice For All by Metallica because it got me into guitar. 

Doug: Ooooofff. Rust in Piece - Megadeth is my all time favorite Megadeth albums it was the first metal album I binge on. Second Exivious - Self Titled that album is a damn MASTERPIECE. 

MM: Where would you like to see yourselves in 5 years time ? 

Zach: I'd like to be playing some tours with some bigger acts. 

Pete: Playing shows with bigger bands and recording some good music. 

Joe: I'd like to play bigger venues with other awesome bands. 

Doug: Continuing to do what I love playing as far and wide as possible 

MM: Four words to describe Crypitus? 

Zach: Psychic thrash metal fusion 

Pete: Progressive Psychedelic Groove Thrash 

Joe: Groovy prog thrash metal 

Doug: Home Grown Vermont Metal 

MM: Can you tell me why we should check out Crypitus? 

Zach: You should check us out because we have a really unique sound. Another reason is because we're cool dudes and it makes us happy when people listen to our music. You never know. You might even like it. 

Pete: You haven’t heard a band like us before. 

Joe: We are cool people with cool music and a distinct sound. 

Doug: We just released our first album Ill World (That's What You Get) it does a great job at capturing what we do!
