Biography

Krakow, Poland (1997 – present)

Crionics formed in January 1997 in the city of Krakow, Poland. The first line up was then Waran on vocals, guitars, Yanuary on guitars, Marcotic on bass and Carol on drums. Their goal was to play fast and melodic metal music. A year after the band formed, they recorded five songs for a demo that never saw the light because of its bad production. About six months later the band decided to record a four-song “DEMO 98” which included the following tracks: Mystic Past, Pagan Strength, Black Warriors, and a cover of Emperor - I Am the Black Wizards. Because of the poor equipment the material wasn’t exactly perfect, but the band decided to promote it anyway. They played a few shows and started looking for a keyboardist that would enhance their sound. Vac-V was the man that quickly became the missing link in their music and CRIONICS’ music starts to sound more interesting and complete at their shows.

In the second half of 1999 Yanuary had to leave the band due to some musical and personal reasons. Later that year CRIONICS engaged Bielmo on guitars who also helped to record “BEYOND THE BLAZING HORIZON” in improvised home studio. The four songs it included were Episode of the Falling Star, Fireland, Waterfalls of Darkness, There was Neither Ground nor Firmament (Precipice Gaped) and also an intro and an outro. Demonic Records released this twenty-minute demo as MCD in 2000. This recording is now available on a CD-R from the band itself, since Demonic Records are no longer in existence. It comes with new improved cover art and bonus tracks from the “DEMO 98”.

    Not death metal? What are they, then, blues?

    they're not death metal or that great, they're competent at what they do. they got some more attention when they signed to Candlelight, I remember them being relatively well known 9 years ago. people just forgot about them because they're not that interesting or memorable and just sound like a baby (read: less talented) Emperor with more death metal influence. most people just listen to better bands in this style like the aforementioned group, Catamenia, or even Vesania.

    I'm very much surprised at how little discussion goes on here, this band kicks ass. If we're talking modern death metal with clean and polished production they're one of the best
