Krepitus - Eyes Of The Soulless

Eyes Of The Soulless
by Jussi Gough at 26 April 2017, 3:57 PM

There are two definitions for a word that best describes KREPITUS (or crepitus), depending how it's spelled can reveal the true meaning. Definition one a sensation produced by friction between bone and cartilage (fractured parts of bone) or a grating sound. Would have to say definition number two is more befitting for the kick off of KREPITUS's latest album Eyes Of The Soulless which wields their own brand of grating sound. Now their style has a way of really causing friction between bone and cartilage with their chunky guitars, power thrusting rhythm section to vocals that aim to steal your mind. Not a bad combination if you ask me!

Hailing from Canada these fab four dish some feisty tasting tunes since 2013 that engage heavy tones along with harsh vocal coverage one has to wonder why a band of this caliber were not discovered long ago. But as with any new band out there climbing the musical ranks of the underground they have to pave a way for themselves in order to reach aboveground. Presently this is where KREPITUS remains at the moment shattering through it all with a new release which delivers eight high impact songs of intensity which blend well into an inferno of musical ecstasy. From the beginning of song “The Decree of Theodoseus” which slams hatred to all with it's vibrant guitar work of Matt Van Wezel to the surprisingly solid drumming of Harley D'orazio this shows power to a start of a already formed album. Considering Eyes Of The Soulless was an independent release effort  the band didn't slack off in any production of recording for all the songs can be heard full front giving each instrument their own spot to shine.

Vocalist guitarist Teran Wyer tears it up with his screamo death approach to his singing that can be easily understood when the music gears up to a crescendo. Showing you more into this is song “Desolate Isolation” where he belts out his lungs shredding the chaos into a full metal singing explosion. One thing about the guitar solos on this track remind me of SLAYER meets early PANTERA where each trade guitarists that dual it out. Interesting to say that Wezel and Wyer really work out the fretboard on their own laying down some strong framework to their songs which shows in the following of “Exile” and “Erroneous”. One has to admit when listening to them that this act has a musical maturity that will impress any label out there that will take them on. KREPITUS has a drive that just might give them an aboveground name that might hold promise in the distant future.
