Played at Graspop Metal Meeting


Thrash Metal




Conceived in early 2008, this Barcelona-based thrash outfit is yet another newcomer at this year’s edition. Initially formed as Crysys by skinsman Javi Carrión and bassist Marc Torras, their victory in the national music contest Martohell Metal Rumble 2008 gave them a platform to launch their career in earnest. They taped their first single, ‘Dead by the Fistful of Violence’ and two additional tracks were recorded for their first demo, ‘Demonstrashion’, landing them a slot in WOA’s A Metal Battle: Spain 2009. The winner’s prize included a recording budget but when funding was cut several weeks into recording their full-length debut, they finished the album in Barcelona. Released in 2011, ‘The Menace’ is a slab of traditional thrash metal in the vein of Megadeth and Bay Area thrash. Not only does the album ooze musicianship, the music also conveys the sense of urgency of the vintage 80s thrash. Both ‘From Blue to Black’ (2016) and ‘Against the Odds’ (2018) confirm Crisix’ reputation as one of the most exciting European thrash bands so mosh it up! (#GMM19)
