Crib45 Wants YOU to Open their European Tour!

Crib45 will bring their brand of atmospheric sludge to Europe this January and February. 

Let me paint a picture: Cult of Luna with slightly less sludge, replaced with the mellower sounds of Neurosis, yet not lacking in aggression. Now admire the beauty. I stumbled upon Crib45 by accident. I was going to see KYPCK‘s album-release show and C45 just happened to open. It was love at first sight. They played long, drawn out songs with little to no tempo changes. Crushing walls of sound penetrated by an occasional note of melancholy or haunting saxophone, and well composed, three-pronged vocal attack guaranteed them a permanent place in my heart. Hear for yourself, go give them your money at Bandcamp, and like them on Facebook. May “Waiting For Deliverance” and “Into The Abyss” be your go-to songs for the day.

Crib45 is an awesome live band; utilizing lights, background videos, televisions and projectors on any surface they can, and it all makes for a hell of a show. They also utilize an additional percussionist for an actual purpose, unlike some other bands. Though the band started out playing acoustic grunge, those days are long gone by their 2009 debut album and EP (which are very much worth checking out too).

The reason I’m bringing this all up is because Crib45 is headlining a tour through Europe. Now I know some of you live in Europe and actually in some of these countries and the rest of you are going to Blastfest in Bergen, Norway anyway so it’s all good. Here are the dates:


Jan 30.2015 Tallinn (EE), Red Emperor

Jan 31.2015 Valga (EE), Rockiklubi

Feb 02.2015 Riga (LT), Depo

Feb 03.2015 Kaunas (LI), Underground Pub

Feb 04.2015 Warsaw (PO), Wypieki Kultury

Feb 06.2015 Metz (FR), La Chaouée

Feb 08.2015 London (UK), The Black Heart

Feb 09.2015 Newcastle (UK), Northumberland Arms

Feb 11.2015 Amsterdam (NL), The Cave

Feb 13.2015 Berlin (DE), Blacklands

Feb 14.2015 Ceski Budojevice (CZ), Velbloud

Feb 21.2015 Bergen (NO), Blastfest 2015


Except that the Warsaw show is in danger as the venue is getting evicted. We’ll see how that develops, but in the meantime: YOU CAN BE THE OPENER! All opening acts will be handpicked by the band themselves and most slots are still open!

  • Listening to Borderlines, this is some jams I can get into

  • Tyree

    I’m totally bringing the grind to Warsaw.

  • Death

    Sounds good. Is bitch bear planning on visiting Estonia for this band?

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      Maybe I will.

      • Just to clarify, you respond to “bitch bear”?

        • Death

          He does.

        • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

          I think our relationship is now at a point whefe he hold the whip of dominance, and I enjoy the pain. So, I guess I am a bitch bear. Besides who else could he have meant? It’s not like Blackbeard or McNulty are as bear-like as I

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            Fucking blasphemy.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Which part. I mean you may be bearsome. But I am A Bear.

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            Credit where credit’s due, I suppose.

          • Death

            If you don’t want to be called bitch bear, just say so (I’m probably not gonna stop, but at least you tried)

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            *Asks*

          • Death

            Well, fuck it, I’ll stop. I am a merciful god

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            You = Death
            I = God

          • Death

            I do not recognize your authority as a god.

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            Neither do i

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Nobody asked you.

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            That never stopped me before.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I have noticed that we share this trait.

          • Death

            Except that you’re less of a dick.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Nordling 1 – Blackbeard 0

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            That’s ok, more cred for me.

          • Death

            More like Nordling 1 – Blackbeard -900000000

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            At least comin’, even if it’s a little behind.

          • Death

            He’s behind you by quite a lot

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            Dont drop the soap.

          • Death

            Like you did?

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            I keep making the same mistakes.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I did not see that negative prefix.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            You don’t need to. Hades’ was never invited to the big boys parties and he was basically death. History repeats itself.

          • Death

            I have seen the throne of the gods, and it was empty

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            We’re boozin’ right now.

          • Death

            I’m calling Kratos.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Smacked him once, smack him again.

          • Death

            Kohta häkki heilahtaa

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            (Humming) Ei se heilu vaan pysyy paikallaan.

          • I think I regret asking lol

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I’m getting that a lot lately

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I’m getting that oddly lot lately

  • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

    You wanna talk about horrible band names “Crib45” takes the cake.

    • Death

      Babymetal?

      • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

        Babymetal is intentionally campy. Crib45 takes themselves seriously.

        • Death

          I’m gonna start a super serious band called “Captain Rainbow’s Super Awesome Poopy Party.”

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            If you want it to be really cvlt, you’ll name it that in Norwegian.

          • go ahead and get your neck tattoos, gauges, and beard ready

          • Death

            Someone needs to desing an unreadable logo.

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            I’M ON IT

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            ok, this is perhaps one of my greatest works yet:

          • Death

            I can read some words!

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            scurb, you aren’t kvlt

          • Death

            Also, it doesn’t have enough pentagrams or inverted crosses.

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            it has poop. that’s all it needs.

          • Death

            Pentagrams are kvlt. Needs more goat heads as well.

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            poop is the most cvlt. fecal imagery >>>>>>>>

          • Death

            I completely forgot that you’re a coprophile.

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            you’re just mad because i perfectly encrapsulated your ridiculous vision.

          • Death

            No you didn’t. I want it to be completely unreadable.

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            then go back to FFB scurb. this is trve shit going on here.

          • Death

            FFB = BLVKKBEVRD

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            i’m never making a dope band logo for you again!

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            *strings four long medical terms together for band name
            *writes them illegibly so wont ever have to pronounce it
            *makes generic songs about murder, rape, and incest
            *dies in obscurity

          • Like Paracoccidioidomicosisproctitissarcomucosis? Yes, it’s an actual band!

            http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Paracoccidioidomicosisproctitissarcomucosis

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM
          • Howard Dean

            Death’s band: Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water

          • Tyree

            This sounds like a party I’d like to attend.

          • Oh before I forget, tell me about the Mellancamp story!

          • Or as we call that here, Tuesday night.

          • Death

            Are you happy that The Interview was not shown?

          • Sure! I mean, we don’t show anti-American propaganda or films over here, so why pick on us? To make up for the fact America doesn’t have a big, veiny, should-be-hanging-in-a-deli wiener like Best Korea? Hah!

      • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

        Worst name ever. Terrible music to go with that shit name

    • Stan Laurel

      Yep. Sounds like a Rapper.

      • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

        this is disparaging to great rappers

        • Stan Laurel

          Oxymoron.

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            What a great album.

          • Stan Laurel

            Touche ScHoolboy Q! Had to Google that one!

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            Was #2 on my top 10 hip hop albums of the year

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            What were the other nine?

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            You’ll have to go back and look, as i’m not sure i could accurately recreate it. They included (at #1) Ab-Soul’s These Days…, (#3)The Underachievers’ Cellar Door: Terminus ut Exordium, as well as Logic’s, RTJ2, Domo Genesis Under the Influence 2(#4)

  • Guacamole Jim

    Yeah Nordling!! I am digging this. Great write-up!

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      Danke schön eli kiitoksia niin perkeleesti.

      • Death

        Elä vittu kiroa!

        • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

          No enhän mie vittu koskaan kiroa! Elä sie vittu ny taas ala isottellemmaa!

          • Death

            Do I have to get the cage?

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            No. But you coulf attend grammar lessons. Or outright spank me.

          • Death

            “B” and “v” are next to each other you dickhole.

          • Howard Dean

            Finn divorce! They’re going to get into a slapping fight and then makeup by sharing some dried fish.

          • Death

            We’re (and by we I mean me) gonna eat some bear meat.

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            *reindeer

          • Death

            You know what Death likes.

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            Sodomy.

          • Death

            You got me with reindeer, you lost me with sodomy.

          • Guacamole Jim

            I feel like that on a day to day basis.

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            Sadly, Death cant feel his bhole anymore.

          • Death

            Death doesn’t have one. Maybe that’s why I’m such a shithead.

          • too many cacti?

          • Howard Dean

            Bear is too gamey–I’ll take smoked cod or salmon instead.

          • VVorld Peace

            I like bear

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            (I’m) No game.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Dried fish ain’t that delicious. Make it Reindeer.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I know that. Also, d-hole’s are regularly small. I’m big

  • Tyree
  • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

    I want to start a band called Malum 🙂

  • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

    Slow and heavy, just like the actor John Candy

    -Crib45 self-description
    I guess we can forget the being serious guys!

    • Stan Laurel

      I like this. Definitely picking up the CoL vibe which isn’t a bad thing as Vertikal was in my 2013 top 10.

      • VVorld Peace

        Vertikal was my #1 that year.

        • Stan Laurel

          That album is still in constant rotation. Every time I hear “In Awe Of” it gets me going. Did you catch them on their LAST tour with Katatonia?

          Protest the Hero was my #1. I’m a sucker for those Canucks!

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            I wont ever like anything by CoL above Eternal Kingdom

          • Stan Laurel

            That was my favorite prior to Vertikal’s release. Vertikal is so much more…….weighty.

          • Stan Laurel

            Did any of you see the acoustic version of Passing Through? Filmed in one take during a snowstorm in a dockyard in Finland somewhere. If you didn’t….. enjoy!

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjESX_MWpdY&spfreload=10

          • BLVKKBEVRD, PVRPLE WYZDOOM

            I haven’t heard Eternal Music

    • Count_Breznak

      Jokes on you, he isn’t that heavy anymore.

      • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

        The dead don’t weigh eh? The jokes on them though, not me.

        • Count_Breznak

          Unless, of course, he really was big boned.

    • YourLogicIsFlushed

      Finally got a chance to listen, this is some serious shit Nordling. Thanks for the share!

      • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

        My pleasure

  • Stockhausen

    I am listening to this band, and I like this band.

  • CyberneticOrganism

    Gaaah fuck I wanna go back to Bergen for Blastfest

  • Further Down the Metal Hole

    It’s awesome that they’re inviting bands to “audition” for an opener slot. More bands should do that. For that alone I shall give these guys a listen later on.

  • Gurrp

    Crib45 sounds like an old industrial band name.
