Cruentis is a progressive death metal band that originated out of Quesnel, British Columbia in the country of Canada. The band began in 2012 with the lineup of Jesse Dean on Vocals and Guitars and Tyler DeMerchant on Vocals and Bass.[1]

History Edit

Cruentis began in 2012, between two friends Tyler DeMerchant on Bass and Vocals and Jesse Dean on Vocals and Guitars.[2] Shortly after forming the band, Matt Sargent joined on Lead Guitars.[2] Despite forming in 2012, the band remained musically silent until 2016.

The band added on Daniel Willsmore on Drums and then recorded their debut album, Cold Stone, with the title track and "The Blood That Divides" being released as singles, prior to the release.[3] The album was put out, independently.[4] An EP, titled Dichotomy, was recorded after the album's release.[5] Following the EP's release, Willsmore and Sargent both departed from the band, leaving only DeMerchant and Dean left. The band would continue as a two-piece, as both members understood how to perform drums.[3][6]

In 2018, the band signed with Nosral Recordings, home to bands such as Symphony of Heaven, Light Unseen, and Ascending King.[7][8] After signing with the label, the band released their sophomore album, Alpha & Omega, with a lyric video for the title track.[6][9] The album would receive good reviews rating at an average of 7 to 8 stars out of 10.[10][11][12][13] In 2019, the band's label would go out of business, which would result in the band become independent once more.[2]
