KRAMPUS are one of the truest and most honest metal bands out there. What started off as a very solid, and somewhat stereotypical “folk metal” band, KRAMPUS has evolved immensly and defined their own musical path with no regrets. The bands latest single “The Trial” is a perfect example of how far they have come musically and the sonic direction they are moving. While their sound still contains the core elements of “folk metal”, one must really hear to fully understand the new soundscape that KRAMPUS is inventing.
“The Trial” is coming off the bands upcoming full length release, Counter//Current, which is due out on November 15, 2016. Watch the lyric video below.
A direct message from KRAMPUS:
“Dear Fans, after a tonload of work, struggles and challenges we are all so proud to be able to showcase to you the first song extracted from our new album Counter/Current, available in all digital stores from November 15th. We put a lot of effort on this album and as always we experimented and tried a lot of things. As always we put a strong importance to the message we wanna spread so we hope you’ll take your time to read our lyrics. Some of you will like it, others will hate it ( some will threaten to kill us… ) and we can’t wait to read and see your reactions! What we hope is to surprise you, either in a good or a bad way,cause we believe that it’s always good to slip into the unexpected and it’s a band’s duty to never repeat itself. And with this spirit…. – Fear the Krampus, comin’ at ya always in fancy different ways!”
