Band Background


That’s the Krokodil modus operandi, according to the band.

Actually, not every one of the six musicians is the guardian of a well-thatched chin, but when it comes to The Riffs… there’s no shortage…

Signed to Spinefarm Records worldwide and featuring members & previous members of Cry For Silence, Hexes, Gallows & SikTh, Krokodil have just put the seal on their debut studio album, set for release this autumn; with all of the personnel coming complete with ‘other lives’, it’s taken a genuine commitment to the cause to launch something new, plus a collective excitement at what that ‘something new’ might be… in this case, a record that, according to Krokodil guitarist Daniel P Carter of Radio One Rock Show and Hexes repute, “will be the start of something pretty special…”.

As with any fiendish plan, it didn’t come together straight away; there was talking and plotting to be done, plus a certain amount of late night drinking. Of course, the trouble with ideas exchanged over a few beers (then a few more), is they can sometimes look a lot less viable in the morning, but in this case the seeds had been well an’ truly sewn…

What followed was selective UK dates to road-test the material they were coming up with, but it was an appearance at the Download festival (2013) that properly lit the fuse – a high-profile launch-point, and a show that made it clear that the chemistry was indeed right; the arrival of an inflatable crocodile onstage and, more significantly, a member of Mastodon wearing a Krokodil shirt, proved that the rock ‘n’ roll grapevine was already a-buzz…

“Yeah, that was the point where we realised we had to stop talking about the band and start being a band,” confirms Carter. 

With UK festival appearances lined up throughout the summer, including Sonisphere (July), Bloodstock (August) & Alt Fest (August), then touring in the autumn to follow, Krokodil are now ready to firmly plant their flag; and – like the beards – Those Riffs will only be getting bigger…
