Before grunge there was Culprit. For a generation that grew up on Kiss, Rush and Black Sabbath, Culprit proved Seattle could rock with the best. As Iron Maiden was to England and Metallica was to San Francisco, Culprit was to Seattle.
Featuring a duel chain-saw guitar attack with the most in-your-face bass player ever. A powerhouse drummer and a vocalist like no other. Culprit delivers what people crave: "High energy" intense metal with great musicianship and vocals. A rather British-sounding vein, complete with cascading duo-guitar runs and one helluva bulldozer rhythm section. Split-second time changes, piercing vocals, staggeringly complex rhythms and dominating power.
Inspired by Culprit, hundreds of Seattleites went on to form bands. In part you can thank Culprit for their influence on Sound Garden, Pearl Jam, Nevermore, Alice-N-Chains, and Queensryche.
This recording will give you a taste of the energy and insanity that is Culprit. Enjoy!
