“They take a somewhat different slant on Death/Thrash Metal, cleverly mixing subtle technical riffs and aggressive rasping vocals then blending traditional elements with a modern slant along with tight melodies and heavy rhythms and the result is both crushing and engaging.”
A death/thrash metal act from Calgary, Canada, Krepitus shreds ‘The Eyes of the Soulless‘ powerfully with fierce devotion and angry attitude.
A ferocious blend of modern thrash and old-school death metal, Krepitus are as distinctly melodic as they are uniformly savage, offering a modern metal approach to time honoured structures.

Calgary, AB’s KREPITUS are challenging the relationship between death and thrash metal with their trademark downtrodden technical riffs and fierce aggressive vocals. They have been constantly playing with opposing elements and creating a stable compound of death-fused thrash since their beginnings in 2013. Three years in the making, the bone crushing four piece are proud to unleash their debut album ‘The Eyes of The Soulless’ out now as of November 25th for FREE download via the band’s Bandcamp at the following link https://krepitus.bandcamp.com/album/eyes-of-the-soulless.

KREPITUS is comprised of Teran Wyer performing double duty on guitar and vocals; a tortured soul bound to his music. Matt Van Wezel is the second sniper, hitting each guitar note with precision and complementing the already harmonious riffs. Curtis Beardy pulls the tone down to the depths of hell with his steady hand and low register bass riffs. Finally, Harley “Rage” D’orazio kicks everything into overdrive possessed by grinding rhythms and accenting every solo on his drum kit.
Each member stands like a pillar; strong and sure in their own sound, but all standing to support the structure that is Krepitus. They have since performed with acts like Expain, Depths of Hatred, and Aegaeon and have competed in the Wacken Metal Battle Canada while writing their debut album.

These eight songs are all excellent, with each having a unique identity. Songs morph from riff-based monsters to soaring 80s solos and melodic interplay. It’s impossible not to break out the invisible oranges when hearing the album, as Krepitus really nail the spirit of metal, old and new, with this excellent album… one of the best extreme metal debuts I’ve heard in a while.
Today is one of those rare honors that I have the privilege to share an up-and-coming band with the world that I know will blow every metal fan away and change the metal landscape. Krepitus from Calgary, Canada is releasing their debut LP this November and it is everything you expect a great metal band to be. The Eyes of the Soulless is a dirty meat-grinder of an album that satisfies every moment from beginning to end.
