Krosis are a new band on the scene, but having signed to notable label Unique Leader Records is definitely a sign of things to come. After a long stretch of dates with Inanimate Existence, Krosis are ready to unveil a load of new music. This starts with the new single and video "Psychoticlysm" from the band's upcoming album A Memoir Of Freewill which is due out on February 7th. Krosis have found a sweet spot in blending together the musicianship of technical death metal, the ballbreaking sound of deathcore and some jazzy/djent tones.
Vocalist Mac Smith's style focuses mostly around the style of deathcore and while the band sounds like it could be constantly on the verge of a breakdown, it almost never comes. Whenever a breakdown does come, Smith's vocal style truly shines and anyone who studies vocalists should keep an ear out for these sections. Alongside that, anytime a breakdown comes, it's almost always swept away, quite literally, by the guitars. Adam Thiessen and Brandon Scurlark have a tendency to throw quick little sweeps in intertwined with the more jazz influenced style.
"Psychoticlysm" is a release for anyone who lines their music a bit more unpredictable. It's a song that's hard to gage exactly what will come next and it's a nice breath of air from what you would typically find from a band that falls under the deathcore umbrella. Krosis have a new video to go along with the new track and a headline tour supporting the new album ready to go!
