When your band was created?
Krudo was created in 2001
What the style do you play?
Generally classified as Thrash Heavy Progressive, for us it is simply METAL
How could you describe your music by several words?
Krudo music is very technical, we like to play with the melodies without losing the strength of extreme metal.
Our music within a disc goes through various shades, therefore all the songs are different, generally our songs are very dynamic.
What is the main theme of your lyrics?
The lyrics are generally socially critical topics such as religion, politics, etc. As these are very common themes also have lyrics about topics such as dementia, stories of murder in real life and own experiences.
What would you like to achieve with the band activity?
One of our dreams is to play our music beyond the borders of Chile and try to reach all metalheads who live on this planet. Our most demanding goal is to be part of one of the biggest metal festivals that take place in the world.
How many gigs you have played so far and maybe you visit another countries with concerts?
So far we’ve only done concerts in Chile, we have shared the stage with bands only here recurrently.
We consider an active band, we’re always shows different levels and we would love to visit other countries.
Is there anything very important about your band what SHOULD know fans and labels?
We believe we have much to contribute to our music to a wider world of metal, Krudo has its own style, we need to listen to our songs around the world, we deliver metal category, our compositions are worked with the soul, our songs have personality and much power.
What the formats you would like to see your releases, CD, Vinyl, Tape…? And how do you see future of physical releases?
We already have two albums on CD circulating and we would very much like to see our work on vinyl, is an elegant format only for collectors and music lovers.
Regarding the future of the physical disks we believe it will always be necessary, above all for those who really love to have a physical copy of your favorite band, although digital formats greatly help expand globally, it is always good to have a disc personal library where you can look lyrics, photos, art, etc.
When you will get label deal, would you like to help to the label with promotion from your side, or you want label do all without your help?
Our latest work Ep “Ashes” 2016 which is part of 3 Way Split “Demons from the end of the world” under Australis Records label is now circulating in the national and international markets. We as a band are always helping the label to disseminate, promote and move all information within our network, it is a joint effort with the level.
What’s your reaction towards negative opinions about your music?
We believe that the negative opinions are usually generated when the band is doing things right. When opinions are malicious and not constructive criticism, we do not take into account.
If we are open to receive criticism to help us improve as musicians and as a band in general.
And last question, how do you like our webzine, do you have some remarks towards its look or functionality?
The Webzine seems great, so it is that we want to be part of it.
We believe it is a friendly format and always have updated their content. We can always find the latest news from the world metal.
Thank you very much for space for a band of south of heaven!!
