Album Notes
The idea of this band formed in the fall of 2005. In the spring of 2006 the band united and formed as Kryterium ®. This is a new era of Metal with the unique talents of this line up, Mikey Chaves (vocals), John Karber (guitarist), Troy Komula (bassist), Mike Harter (guitarist), and Michael Landerman (drums). Members of the band all agree that their homebase lies in the heart of Boise, Idaho.

Kryterium pierces through the scene with its heavy groove riffs, solid drumming, driving bass riffs, and aggressive vocals. When the band was ready to play shows, they came out with such an attack, playing shows every week for months and already have played from California to Massachussettes. In less than a year, Kryterium was already playing on the main stage at the Milwaukee Metalfest XIX. Soon after, they won the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands, which allowed them to play at the Van's Warped Tour 2007 in Idaho. In September 2007, they played New England's biggest Rock fest, Locobazooka! 07. Locally, Kryterium headlines most of the venues, including Bravo Entertainment's Big Easy Concert House, and played two years in a row at Idaho's Rock The Mountain Fest, already being one of Idaho's most favorite band to watch and drawing the biggest metal crowd. Kryterium has shared the stage with top national acts such as Heaven and Hell (Black Sabbath w/Dio), Alice Cooper, Queensryche, Shadows Fall, Killswitch Engage, God Forbid, As I lay Dying, Powerman 5000, Caliban, Poison The Well, Throwdown, The Acacia Strain, The Sword, Seemless, Skinlab, Incantation, Macabre, Byzantine, Godhead, Temple of Brutality, Years of Fire, Acheron, Mensrea, Vampire Moose, Rwake, Burn In Silence, Legacy Of Pain, and many others. This band is all about energy, aggression, and having a good time.

Kryterium's fan base continues to grow WORLDWIDE, with more and more demands to play in other cities and great myspace exposure. Currently, the band just released their debut album, "Control". It was mixed and engineered at the Tonic Room Studios in Boise, Idaho by Chris Parks & Jason Ringelstetter (Marcus Eaton, Midline, Sub*Vert). The album "Control" was mastered by Brian Gardner (Lamb Of God, Ozzy Osbourne) in Los Angeles, California. The band is going to continue to play and write more of what they and their fans want, some in-your-face metal.
