Melodic Death Metal band Cruentis have teamed up with The Metal Resource to bring you the exclusive premiere of the new lyric video for ‘Alpha & Omega’ The song appears on their second album ”Alpha & Omega” which will be released on April 27th via Nosral Recordings. The video can be watched below.
Cruentis is originating in British Columbia, on the west coast of Canada. While there is the common ground of pummeling rhythm, haunting choirs and soaring leads, their unique sound is never the same song to song, drawing inspiration from bands across the metal spectrum, such as Dimmu Borgir, Kalmah, Amon Amarth, Opeth and many more. The band was formed by guitarist/vocalist Tyler DeMerchant and bassist/vocalist Jesse Dean.
Cruentis never shy away from exploring other genres of metal and each piece of work is unique in its own way, while maintaining dark melodic chord progressions and bone-crushing riffs. The lyrics are deeply rooted in the personal life experiences of the band members and the harsh realities of life often left unspoken.
Their debut album “Cold Stone” has been self-released in May 2016. It features their diverse sounds and challenging lyrical content, which flows from a deep commitment to their beliefs in Jesus Christ. Their inspiration was summed up by a member of the band in an interview with us as follows: “I think I speak for all of us when I say Christ is the centre. [We] have no purpose outside of Him. Everything stems from that.“
The entire interview can be found at this location.
