Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Started in 2016 as a pure thrash band, eventually finding new members that have different influences we incorporated different styles in our music while keeping thrash at the heart. Andre is the guy who started it when he was in his teen years and wrote most of the songs. Keegan (drums) joined and brought the modern style of drumming to the old school guitar style. Jeb(bass) played in a symphonic death metal band called Raphuemets Well and is currently in a doom band. He brings a different approach to the ideas where groove trumps all. Art (guitar) is an OSDM fiend. Brutality, but well-written brutality.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
We describe our sound like extreme metal. At face value, I would say death/thrash but we change so much through songs. Some of the stuff is straight-up old school death but then you start hearing some modern playing put in and that just shows our age I guess. We are young guys in our twenties that grew up listening to old school and new school bands. We jumped from Nile to Lamb of God. Cattle Decapitation to Metallica. It moves around and I think in some aspect the music shows that range.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
If they are tired of the overproduced deathcore BS and want to hear good death/thrash that shows the young boys haven’t forgotten about good music. There's a weird trend where bands will say they are death metal or black metal and it ends up sounding like hardcore or deathcore. It’s annoying and frankly, we’re sick of it. Cheers to OSDM and good thrash.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
So far we have two releases. “Militum Infernum” and now “Judgement Day”. The first was our demo and flew under the radar as we had also just started as a band. This release has seen a lot of positive press. People are digging it and we are happy at the good reactions. I can’t wait for fans to be able to listen to it all!
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
We started as a live band and its what we love to do. We were fairly quiet for 2019 but with the new EP out we are ready to dominate stages everywhere. Check out our Facebook for all upcoming events.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
You never know exactly what you are gonna get with Krvsade. The band is evolving constantly and there's no telling what surprises we will through in the music. Also, the live show, if wanna know what Krvsade is about, be sure to catch us live. We let our performance do the talking. It's energetic, raw and in your face. Good ole’ fun time.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
Touring, touring, touring. We are ready to hit the road to show everyone what KRVSADE is about.
Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
