Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to up and coming bands that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with Doug Friend, Peter Snee, Joe Minard, and Zach Patch from Crypitus.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
Pete: We’re Crypitus. I play guitar. Doug and I used to jam to his songs and decided we needed a drummer. We found Zach on Facebook and it worked out.
Joe: I joined after a friend introduced me when they were looking for a bassist.
Zach: When I joined, Doug and Pete were already playing together. I was desperately searching the internet for musicians to jam with, and Pete was the first to respond, with Doug in tow. The rest is history.
Doug: Crypitus started with me Pete and Zach playing some songs that I wrote years back, rehashed them. We finally found a solid bassist and we spend our time performing through New England, New York, Pennsylvania Virginia and recently Canada.
