You should be familiar with Krokodil just because the band’s rhythm section used to be in SikTh. And bassist Alessandro Venturella also appears to the new bassist of Slipknot, even though that hasn’t been announced officially yet. Other members of the band have logged time in Gallows, Cry For Silence and Hexes. But aside from Krokodil’s past or future bands, the band have their debut album coming out on November 11th. Nachash.
While the band have been around for a few years, they’ve just signed to Spinefarm/Universal, and have released a song, “Reptilia Familiar” in advance of the album. It sounds less the proggy awesomeness of Sikth, but more like a current-day modern heavy band, almost like the bands they’re touring the UK and Ireland with, Mastodon and Big Business. You can preorder the album here.
