Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Crypt Infection was founded in 2009 from the ashes of Encoma and Butchery. Hailing from Ventura, CA, this band's unique flavor of Technical Death Metal has been making waves in the scene. Vocalist Ken May's guttural growls and piercing highs offset Lead Guitarist Joe Billingiere's brilliantly disturbing riff and sweltering solos. With blisteringly fast double bass drums and the occasional gravity blasts from Jeremiah Taylor, the sound is rounded out by their sludgy, precise bassist Mike Payton and Rhythm Guitarist Robert Carter.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
We’re technical death metal. We love Suffocation, Spawn of Possession,
Broken Hope, Origin, Aeon, Deicide, Cerebral Bore, etc.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
If they’re looking for honest techdeath, with sick solos and no bullshit, give us a shot!
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
Media? What media? Haha, the media doesn’t give a shit about techdeath in California. We’ve release one EP so far, "Haruspication” and we have a 10 song full length nearly done.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
I don’t think you should call yourself a band if you don’t play live. We’ve played the Central California Death Fest, Vegas Death Fest, and tons of LA shows. I think one of our favorite shows was opening for Cerebral Bore and having a barbeque with them beforehand.
What sould labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
We’ll play for gas money, crush your enemies, see them driven in shame before you, and hear the lamentation of their women. We’re not hard to work with or full of bullshit. We like playing shows and would enjoy the opportunity to play out of the states.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
Release our full length, do a European tour.
Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
