Crib45 is an experimental alternative metal outcome of what started out as a grunge band, but evolved into a collective group of musicians sharing one vision.
Crib45 was founded in early 2002 and along the way the music started to change into darker and more crushing direction until finally becoming what is today. The music of the has been described as “slow and really heavy, just like the actor John Candy” and as a “soundtrack to your suicide”, but in a positive manner. In their music Crib45 aims to combine crushing metal parts to calming and soothing interludes that stretch beyond genres.
On their 2009 debut album Metamorphosis hypnotically flirting Crib45 utilized post-metal elements in their music that took their approach of alternative metal one step closer to somber beauty.
Now in 2014, the sophomore album
Marching Through the Borderlines presents the band in their whole crushing austerity and intense orchestral passion
