EXPERIMENTAL DOOM//HARDCORE PUNK FROM PHILADELPHIA Cruciclit is: Kevin Minor (Guitar, bass, vocals, programming, production, mixing) Chris Balberchak (Vocals, production) John Dzwonek (Drums and Percussion) Austin Latshaw (Bass, vocals) Cruciclit was formed in early 2013 by friends Kevin Minor and Chris Balberchak. Originally a duo completely interested in only doing improvisational grindcore, after being featured in compilations overseas and gaining fans without even playing a show they began to take it a bit seriously. The name was considered being changed at one point, but it was decided to keep it as it shows human-kind’s love of pain, and the pleasure that comes along with that. Soon they turned away from a very grindcore inspired sound and chose to go the route of music that they both loved: old heavy metal and punk rock. Penning 12 debilitating songs of absolute chaos, hurling you to terrifying heights and then throwing you to the earth with monolithic hardcore and sabbath inspired beatdowns and injecting noise between, the album Desolate and Bleak took two years to write and record, as they wanted it to be perfect. Holding one thing sacred-exposing the evils of mankind and shoving it back in the faces of the world. They have gained fans in the punk and metal scene, calling for a revolution in the way of punk, but in a melancholy doomy way. Want to know more about this parade of destruction?

Turbid North

n 2007 we left North Pole, Alaska, for Fort Worth, Texas—far away from any friends and family—determined to play music exclusively and relentlessly. Now, after a few challenging years, Turbid North has three remaining members, guitarist/singer Nick Forkel from North pole, Chris O'Toole - a bassist from Dunstable, England, and Jono Garrett a punishing drummer from Texas. We write music that’s meaningful to us, musically and lyrically. Our last release “Orogeny” features several chilling stories of human survival in the harsh, arctic land, set to inspired death metal music. The songs also explore our love of other forms of metal, as well as our collective interest in many other styles of music. We’re eager and hungry to stay out on the road and share our unique brand of “Alaskan Mountain Metal” with the rest of the world.
