Kruelty Aotearoa Tour

Thursday 15 December 2022

Self-professed purveyors of "disgusting music from Tokyo, Japan", doom / death / beatdown hardcore juggernauts KRUELTY will be ram-raiding the earholes of local gig-goers this summer, announcing today three mega-heavy Aotearoa headline dates for Auckland, Wellington and Hamilton in February 2023. Formed in 2017, KRUELTY unleashed their debut album A DYING TRUTH in 2020 and have released a swarm of single / EP / demo releases, paving the way for the group's second official long player launching in March 2023. Known to don ski masks on stage and certainly not for the faint of heart, don't miss the unsparing pummelling intensity of KRUELTY at the following dates

Formed in Tokyo, Japan in the summer of 2017, KRUELTY has emerged as the most notable artist to find that sweet spot where the amalgamation of heavy beatdown hardcore and ‘90s American/Scandinavian death/doom metal becomes the blueprint of brutality and slam KRUELTY unleash. With KRUELTY you will hear the ultimate convergence of some of the most punishing death metal riffs and the most mind-blowing breakdowns influenced by Japanese and ‘90s East Coast hardcore bands.

2020 saw the release of KRUELTY’s debut album “A Dying Truth” and revealed itself as one of the heaviest albums that year. With their new LP which will be come out in March, KRUELTY will release an album even bigger in scope and ultimately heavier than their debut.
