St. Paul, Minnesota-based progressive/experimental metallers THE CRINN have inked a deal with Nuclear Blast Records.

According to the band's official bio, THE CRINN "was first formed during August of 2004 out of a frustration with the average and mundane, breakdown-oriented metal scene. Their decision to use an explorative style, without concern for genre exclusivity has enabled the band to evolve and grow in a way that other stylized bands cannot. Technical riffs, off-time grooves and jarring transitions are only a few of the focal points used when writing. These experiments have been labeled as mathcore, techmetal, techgrind, jazzmetal and even noodlegrind!"

THE CRINN's self-titled EP was released earlier in the year through Corrosive Recordings. Audio samples are available on the group's MySpace page.


Cole Leonard - Guitar
John Nelson - Vocals
