Charlotte’s Krvsade will be releasing their new EP "Judgement Day" this Friday, January 31, 2020. Before it officially drops, the band has teamed up with GhostCultMag for the EP's exclusive full stream HERE .
Krvsade has come a long way from their 2017 debut EP "Militum Infernum" and they are excited to show off this stark contrast to the previous material to fans. Comparing the new release to their previous one, the band states:
“This EP is definitely a change compared to ‘Militum Infernum’. Whereas Militum was more raw and pure in your face, 'Judgement Day' has some twists and turns. The playing is better and I think fans will appreciate a band that’s firing on all cylinders and not holding anything back. It's a good example of the rebirth of this band. Our sound evolving from the rawness it previously was. More mature and progressive. It's a fun ride from start to finish." says vocalist/guitarist Andre Evans.
New, refreshed and boasting some line-up changes, Krvsade is here to stay. "Judgement Day" is coming and it’s going to be an exciting, aggressive ride for everyone. The EP as a whole is just an appetizer for the main course which is to come.
Fans of Slayer, old school Sepultura, Kreator, and Morbid Angel should keep an eye on these guys.

Released from the depths in 2015, Krvsade is a mind-shattering thrash assault destined to conquer stages across the nation and the world. A new blend of extreme metal from Charlotte, USA, Krvsade incorporates death and black metal into the thrash equation, resulting in an original, brutal sound.
The four members of Krvsade work together to refine each melodic track, starting with Andre Evans (guitar/vocals) defining the skeleton of the song with riff ideas and the occasional chorus. The framework is sent to Keegan Dennis (drums) to flesh out a solid foundation and once that is done, it passes to Arthur Reid (guitar) and Jeb Laird (bass) for final attunement. Lyrical themes encompass anything from the end of days to religion and real-life events.
Having shared the stage with the likes of Inquisition, Nervosa, and Uada, Krvsade is first and foremost a live band. With seasoned musicians comprising the line-up, a live gig from Krvsade is intense and interactive. Raw and in the moment, it’s not a numb, over choreographed school play. This is real, in your face, fast and angry metal; a full set of four dudes losing their minds. The way it should be.
Krvsade released their debut offering ‘Militum Infernum’ in 2017, featuring the first three songs they ever wrote as a band. Growth and evolution are apparent in the newest recording, ‘Judgment Day’ EP arriving in January 2020. According to the band, this latest 3 track record is only an appetizer for the full course that is coming soon.

"I can highly recommend this to anyone who yearns for that ‘old school’ vibe that seems to be so highly sought after. Krvsade nail what it takes to be an old school blackened thrash act in the 21st century by sticking true to tried and tested traits, but by expanding their sound into more sludgy territory at the same time...damn good, solid, thrashing fun time." - Metal Observer
"The opening title track is a fine example of what the Krvsade are about, old school Sepultura, Death or even Morbid Angel style guitar work and recording esthetics, pulverising kit work from Dennis and demonic vocals from Evans. You can just picture Evans eyes lit up electric blue as he spits fire from his mouth and shoots lighting bolts from his palms." - Metal Noise
"Listen to it until your ears bleed, and then listen to it again." - Roxx100
"A giant dose of talent in this Ep; a sinister environment enhanced by a well balanced rhythm section, a great structure and an inspired solo in JUDGEMENT DAY. KEEP IN THE CHURCH is more squared with deep vocals and great changes of time. Not least next THE KEY AND THE GATE. A band to keep an eye on! Interesting!" - HardRockHeavyMetal
"Made up of only 3 songs, the EP starts off with a bang, combining thrash and death metal in a powerful title track that can be easily pictured as the soundtrack for a savage moshpit." - Metal Blast
"Krvsade slam out some awesome old school death/thrash metal on their new EP Judgment Day. These three songs are what just what the metal doctor ordered full of anger, aggression and powerful lyrics. Great evil vocals that slash through awesome guitar riffs that are both fast and heavy." - The Dirty Room
"If you like it heavy and dark, I believe you will like this one. This slashin’ thrashin’ journey is built on a foundation of some very powerful drum work with amazing guitar accents sprinkled throughout. The vocals are what nightmares are made of, and I mean that in a complimentary manner... I strongly recommend checking out this Death/Thrash Metal combo, it works for me." Boston Rock Radio
"For my money, thrash with a heavy dose of death metal has always been more fertile ground for bands looking to make their mark after the genre’s 80s heyday. Charlotte’s Krvsade is clearly of the same opinion. Their second EP, Judgement [sic] Day is a promising, if overly brief, show of force from a band still finding their footing in today’s metal scene." - Toilet Ov Hell
"Krvsade is firing on all cylinders and boasting some changes, they really have developed an impressive sound." - Craank
