KRUSNIX is 4 loud and passionate members - Amirul on drums, Caine on lead guitar, Syazwan on bass and Afiq on mic and guitar.
Tell us a bit about yourselves and your music.
We are 4 passionate individuals who wants to make lots of noise and fun through our music. We got together through a mutual friend. It was just Caine, Amirul and Afiq in the beginning. Syazwan joined us shortly after. Most of the time we like to goof off, cracking jokes and all. We actually bonded together through what most people would call tough love. For instance, Afiq giving Amirul a hard time when he makes a mistake during performances like dropping his sticks (laughs). But whats great about Krusnix is that everyone likes to push each other through this, which moves the band forward.
Every show, we would have a different setlist because we are always excited to play something different and challenging, which shows in our songwriting. Although our songs don’t have a fixed theme, each song is better than the other. We would definitely write songs if we need to let something out or express ourselves, which becomes the lyrics to a song. Composing can take a while as we can have 5 or even more riffs but none can glue together so we have to do different variations to make the song work. The most important thing about our songs is that people recognize it’s Krusnix if its loud and fast.
Yep, we definitely recognise your style. Why do you think your audience relates to your music?
Composing is like storytelling. We hope that our fans can relate to it or at least open their mind to the things that is not shown on mainstream media. As nobody likes to play in a library, the most important thing we try to achieve is that we made people move to our songs while performing live.
Aww.. you guys don't like the library? Tell us what you like then.
Definitely the music scene in Singapore. Although it is relatively small, everyone knows each other, even if they are from camps of other genres.
Fast forward to 2040. Where do you see yourselves?
We would definitely see ourselves releasing multiple full length albums and perform every show with maximum capacity in any venues. Other than Singapore, we are currently working our way towards one of our goals - that is to play in Hammersonic festival, in Jakarta; which is our main goal. For 2040, we hope we can tour constantly overseas, hopefully in the US or UK. Also, we hope to see our band not only seen as signature band for metal locally, but also internationally.
Let's try to make that happen together. Before you go, 3 words that best describe your band?
Passion and brutality!
