In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the Metal band Crypitus, from USA. Check out this band and give them a like on their FACEBOOK PAGE.
1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?
Doug: The name actually came from my high school teacher Josh who randomly came up to me one day and said you know what would be a sick band name; Crepitus its the sound of bones breaking. Immediately I was sold and accidentally pulled a Dave Mustaine and we are now know as Crypitus!
2. Why did you want to play this genre?
Doug: I was sold on the idea of metal because it was a display of raw power and loved the messages they displayed
Zach: I didn't. I wanted to play some groovy tunes, but metal will always be my root genre.
Pete: Metal has always been the purest expression of emotion and raw energy to me.
Eddie: Metal of all shapes is my favorite type of music to listen to when I first picked up the guitar I was trying to play death metal I that was into.
3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?
Doug: Funny enough I met Eddie and Pete from when I was a drum tech for a hippie jam band, I met Zach a few brief times but it wasn't till we
met through Facebook for a jam that we ever connected
Zach: I met Doug and Pete looking for new musicians to jam with online. I've been playing music with Eddie for like a dozen years.
Pete: I knew Eddie since middle school and I had known doug for years through another band he did drum tech for.
Eddie: I met Doug in 2014 at a show this one time. I've known Zach since I was fifteen and was in my first band ever with him. I met Pete way back in middle school at a dope ass art class.
4. Each band member favourite band?
Doug: The hardest question to ever ask a musician. Its either Death or Megadeth.
Zach: Between The Buried And Me.
Pete: Mastodon, or Children of Bodom, or Sithu Aye... or maybe Plini.
Eddie: Ooh probably Death is definitely up there as far that goes.
5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?
Doug: Im inspired by the world, to be vague I guess but, since I pull a lot of my inspiration from ecology and spirituality its hard to not look at things without seeing the big picture.
Zach: I gotta be remembered for something I guess.
Pete: I'm inspired by other bands and things I do like hiking and making artwork.
Eddie: What has inspired me to play music are my family, my friends, and my first big show i went to when I was a kid Motorhead¡!
6. Where was your last gig?
Cherry Street Station in Wallingford CT
7. Where would you like to act?
Doug: I would love to play the main stage at The Palladium in Worcester MA
Zach: I plan on hitting California and every state in between. Maybe even a world tour.
Pete: Higher Ground in Burlington VT or The Palladium
Eddie: I would love to play at any place! I love the shows where you are on the floor with the audience, they are always a blast!
8. Whom would you like to feature with?
Doug: I would love the opportunity to play with a band like Gojira.
Zach: We will be playing with Megadeth and BTBAM someday. Just you watch.
Pete: An Unction in Braille
Eddie: In the kind of show I referred to above, Slayer, Megadeth, Obituary, and Cannibal Corpse.
Doug: That'd be one hell of a show!
9. Whom not?
Doug: The current Metallica, it'd be too sad know what was.
Zach: I don't think I'd like a show with John Denver or Britney Spears
Eddie: I wouldn't want to play a show with like any thing that would be total opposite of what we were playing like Fall Out Boy because the fans wouldn't enjoy it, or maybe they would who knows.
10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?
Doug: I conquered my stage fright early at age 14, me and my friends were going to cover Smells Like Teen Spirit at the talent show. They all bailed on me so I did a solo guitar cover of War Pigs by Black Sabbath as an awkward 5' 4" 95lbs middle schooler!
Zach: The first Maine show I had a lil stage fright because the crowd was unreal. But I found wearing a clown nose makes me feel invincible!
Pete: Lots of times. The audience usually hasn't heard our songs before so that helps a lot.
Eddie: You love rocking out well, so does every one else so just have fun with it and make sure you all in the band practice as much as you can.
11. What bands have inspired you the most?
Doug: Megadeth shape my idea on how diverse metal can be and Dave has quiet a daunting story.
Zach: Dream Theater and BTBAM. Their drummers are incredible.
Pete: Mastodon inspired me a lot when I was younger. Lately it's been us inspiring me.
Eddie: The bands that inspire me the most are Slayer, Metallica, Death, Dissection, Impaled, Iron Maiden, Cannibal Corpse and Dying Fetus.
12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?
Zach: We had someone ask us for autographs once. I was like, are you making fun of us? But they were serious.
Eddie: Being asked to autograph a fans flyer for the first time was pretty cool always love the love.
13. What do you think of your fans?
Doug: I love all those shit heads!
Pete: Our fans are the best!
Eddie: Every one I have met at a Crypitus show are some crazy hilarious down to earth and are my friends instantly! Haven't met anyone I didn't like!
