KRUELTY is Japanese beatdown hardcore/death metal band formed in Tokyo. We’ve been a band since 2017 and have released a few demos, an EP and now three splits. Our sound is influenced by some east-coast and Japanese beatdown hardcore bands like No Retreat, One Second Thought, Swear to God, Redline, Straight Savage Style and Second to None (JP) as well as some death doom like Asphyx, Coffins, and Divine Eve.
Our split with Moment of Truth, "The Beginning of the End”, will be released physically by two labels. Arduous Path Recordings will be releasing a run of tapes while Dead Sky Recordings will be doing a run of CDs. Our new tracks are more death metal than ever before and also pay much respect to some death doom legends.
We’re in the process of planning an overseas tour along with our upcoming full length record in spring 2020…"
