The band will join forces with Death Metal legends Malevolent Creation and Vital Remains. Pestifer, Karnak, Truth Corroded, Erebos and Hatesower are confirmed as guest bands.
19.01.12 - KRISIUN AMONG THE BEST BRAZILIAN METAL BANDS OF 2011 ACCORDING TO GROUNDCAST!
21.09.11 - PREMIERE NEW SONG “THE WILL TO POTENCY” ONLINE!
Buckle up for the brand new song “The Will To Potency” from KRISIUN, off of their upcoming album “The Great Execution”, which will be released via Century Media Records on October 31st in Europe and November 1st in the US. The track perfectly captures the band’s renowned sonic brutality, but at the same time displays epic mid-tempo passages that add a new edge to a classic set up. Listen to the song exclusively at the website of Terrorizer (UK) magazine:
“The Great Execution”, produced by Andy Classen at Stage One Studio once more, is the band’s 8th studio album and musically expands KRISIUN’s trademark high speed death metal violence with a heavily increased amount of diversity ranging from extreme tempo variations over distinct rhythm patterns to clean guitars and even Flamenco parts!
KRISIUN only used analogue gear and instruments this time to avoid the compressed sound that so many musicians produce today. This wise decision resulted in a more organic sound, with the songs on “The Great Execution” possessing both warmth and rawness, which are so often lost through digital production.
“The Great Execution” will be available as a limited edition digipak including a re-recorded version of the classic KRISIUN song “Black Force Domain” as bonus track, as 180g gatefold vinyl and as a digital download.
KRISIUN’s next European live executions will take place in 2012! Stay tuned for dates!
31.08.11 - ROCKHARD MAGAZINE ARTICLE ABOUT KRISIUN`S UPCOMING NEW ALBUM "THE GREAT EXECUTION".
The new Krisiun-LP "The Great Execution“ will be released October 31st – and this time, it really is a “long player”: with a total duration of more than 60 minutes (the limited version includes a bonus track and will even be 67 minutes long), the album, which was produced by Andy Classen, offers an unusually great deal of metal for your money. And an extra dose of diversity on top.
Since the beginning of their career about 20 years ago, the three Brazilian brothers have been telling us that they want to mix up their Highspeed-Hightech-Deathmetal with catchy midtempo-sections more often, making it more interesting and diverse. On their past albums, this was usually accomplished with a few slower alibi-riffs, while the rest of the respective albums established new records in terms of speed. Of course, this was all performed on an extremely high technical level and interstratified by enough catchy sections to enthuse almost every Death-Metal-Fan (and others) – but it was also quite predictable and not very exciting.
“The Great Execution” now indeed takes it one step further as it shows a surprisingly high number of midtempo-sections that make the (of course still dominating) eruptions of speed appear even more extreme and brutal. There’s much more diversity going on; otherwise, the album would have been much too long und monotonous. But like this it seems that the guys finally found the ideal mixture; time just flew by when the band recently presented their new album to a selected crowd of journalists in Dortmund’s Metal-Bar “Die Burg”, in the presence of producer Andy Classen. Every face was covered with honest enthusiasm; the three sinister-looking but totally endearing brothers were visibly proud of their work.
“We made sure indeed this time that the song writing would be more variable – both with regard to tempo as well as with regard to the arrangements”, Max answers the question of what the main difference is between the new album and its forerunners.
“We are still very much into the fast parts, but breaking up the fast parts with the slower ones definitely worked on this record. Everyone who heard it so far says so.”
But that modification of sound didn’t progress under pressure, as Max accentuates: “Everything, we do comes straight from our hearts. That’s the way this band works.”
And you can really hear that immediately! All the specific KRISIUN-trademarks – Moyses’ characteristic riffs, Max’s Lombardo/Sandoval-like drumming and Alex’s unique Death-Metal-vocals – are also omnipresent on “The Great Execution”. The tremendous musical sense and the high technical standard of their work in general has no influence on the catchiness or the brutality of the songs. To illustrate this, the band recorded a remake of their old classic ´Black Force Domain´, which easily tops the original recording.
“That’s the song everyone wants to hear from us all the time. The new version of the song proves that we gained heaviness over our career and never lost connection to our roots.”
Is there anyone who ever doubted this, Max? I guess not.
More dates and killer news will be posted soon!

- SHOW IN MEXICO GOT CANCELLED BECAUSE THE BAND COULD NOT GET THE VISAS.

Embassy to issue the Visas, making it impossible for the band to get the Visas issued in time.
