In our ongoing investigation of deceptive and outright fraudulent extreme metal acts, we pull the rug under a handful of established outfits that don’t even seem to bother hiding that they are after your money first, artistic integrity a distant second - an audience satisfaction not even registering. The more we pull away the blinds the more obvious these practices become. Maybe your favorite band is in here, maybe your life-long inspiration only cares about the dollars/euros you’re giving him/her? Don’t be fooled, there are plenty of honest, hard-working metal bands everywhere in the scene. It’s just that these money-hungry, artistically vacuum units make it difficult for everybody involved. These bands stopped caring, they lost the passion and fire. In short: they Sold Their Souls...
we managed to write something
"Iänkaikkinen, pysyvä, muuttumaton pimeys" (2013)When grown men (and women) paint their faces, sport inverted crosses and spent more time acquiring the right wardrobe than they do writing and rehearsing, I can’t help but crack a smile at the ridiculousness of the endeavour. Arsonist Lodge, who undoubtly admire the Norwegian churchburners of the ‘90s, are however a solid act within this genre. As you can probably guess this is another one-man...
"Ov Qliphoth and Darkness" (2013)What a pleasant surprise. I’m not familiar with this band’s debut record from a couple of years ago, but if this record is any indication it is at least a curiosity worth seeking out. Italy has always had a knack for the theatrical, and this band is no different in that regard. Atmosphere, so often lacking in modern extreme metal albums, is something that oozes from every pore of this record. ...

new stuff from us
I had some material done already before the demise of Lord Belial. Some of the material was actually intended for the next Lord Belial album, but since we disbanded I changed around all of the ideas into new songs.
news bloody news
The latest Crionics offer will be out on 06.06.2011 on Icaros Records. The “N.O.I.R.” Ep consists of three premiere songs as well as the band’s own version of such metal world’s well-known songs as Immortal’s “Blashyrkh” and Rammstein’s “’Moskau” (featuring special guest appearance of Peter / Vader and Vogg / Decapitated). This not all what makes this offer pretty unique... The material comes out with very special bonuses, namely - first Crionics’ demo recorded back in 1998, including Emperor’s “I am The Black Wizards” cover, “Scapegoat” live video and “The making of N.O.I.R.” video.

Last year Crionics took part in several tours in order to get their name back out there... Runs consisted of 50 shows in total, including tours with Rotting Christ and Sadist amongst others, during which the band conquered the lands of almost every Middle and Eastern Europe country.
“N.O.I.R.” have already had its premiere in the Eastern Europe at the end of the last year on Russian label MSR Productions. Icaros Records version is set to enchant Crionics’ fans with different cover art as well as 12-pages booklet, all wrapped in a breath-taking layout and design.
Works are in progress on the “Scapegoat” video that will promote the “N.O.I.R.” extended Ep material. Before it gets online you may listen to “Scapegoat” here: www.myspace.com/crionics
