New Krisiun track: yep, it’s definitely Krisiun

A band that doesn’t get anywhere near as much kudos as they should: Krisiun. 2008’s Southern Storm was as bone-crunchingly painful a death metal assault as you could ask for, and a new track with video from their forthcoming album The Great Execution has just been released (hat tip to Metal Underground).

You never know what a band is going to do when they release a new album but I’m pleased to report that this track is most definitely the Krisiun we know and love. It might sound a little cleaner, to my ears – the drums in particular seem a bit more clinical than we’ve heard on previous releases – but if the album is comprised of music in this vein, no one should have anything to be upset about.

I recently had the pleasure of seeing Krisiun live, at Hellfest in France. They played one of the tent stages in the middle of the afternoon. A while before they played, we spotted frontman Alex Camargo wandering around the metal market, buying pins for his jacket – just like an ordinary punter, which was cool to see. Their set was pretty tight and the only real thing I can say negatively about them was that they thanked the crowd a real lot. After every song. Multiple times. I get that they’re happy to be there, and maybe it’s the South American way, but jeeze guys, chill out!

The Great Execution is being released on Halloween.

  1. Argh KRISIUN live = fanfuckingtastic. Brilliant set, nice guys. Though I did notice that they had a rather persistent approach to young tarts haha

  2. Ah yes … a post on a great Death Metal band is the only kind of thing where necroing a thread is sort of ok.

    I concur with Biodagar. I love Krisiun dearly and finally had a chance to see them live last Saturday here in Berlin and they were absolutely fanfuckingtastic.

    I refer to them, in a most loving way, as the Hanson of Death Metal but let there be no mistake: Krisiun is metal nobility of a kind that the angry-shouty-angsty mob can’t even dream of ever achieving.

    And also, they’re lovely, lovely dudes with their hearts completely in the right place.

    Cheers, C.
