Unleashing their second EP “II” unto the world through their own independent label Old Haunt Records this past July, CREATURES are kicking it “Old Style F.A.” with their new video premiered onTheCirclePit.com. The video was filmed during the band’s hometown show in Toronto at the Bovine while they were on their Ontario tour this past summer.

The band explains the track:

“This song is a light-hearted story about a typical Friday night going out with your friends. Starting from the pre-drink at your house to hitting up the bar and ending up in a fight to back your friend up.”

Spawned in the Toronto murk in 2015, CREATURES is a group effort with a long history that intertwines the lives of numerous local bands to summon a truly devastating soundscape of unbridled chaos. Inspired by bands such as Necrophagist, Despised Icon and Thy Art Is Murder, CREATURES is a band playing heavy and catchy deathcore, taking intense sounds and mixing in small elements of extreme and black metal.

Their latest effort “II” reaches into a large porcelain cup of topics. Instead of just merely presenting their themes to their listeners CREATURES smashes the grail in their faces making sure their themes cut deep and stay with them. Whether they are lyrics about the futility of existence with a cartoon metaphor, or the bond of brotherhood within an intense party setting, there is a message for everyone to latch onto. Regardless, the songs are a visceral insight into the band’s life.

The band comments:

“The ‘Creatures II’ EP as a whole is the ideas and thoughts over the past year. We are expecting this release to be even better received than the last EP. We worked twice as hard on ‘II’ and had a few new people along the way that really helped add an outside perspective to the creative processes for a more mature and heavy sound. We really just want to create a seamless listening experience for the fans, leaving them wanting more, and left with the feeling of needing to listen to the EP over and over again.”

For more info:

“II is five tracks long and flys by in an instant as barbaric riffs, bitter vocals, mind-bending breakdowns and a constant feeling of desperation wrap around you. This is not an EP for the faint of heart as Creatures have a habit of jumping out at you in an attempt to startle you.” – Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life

“a bridge between Mathcore and Deathcore! Interesting combination.” – Heavy Metal New York  

“With a year gone by with some amazing Deathcore albums, this year has been a little bleak. Not to worry though, this little jewel is here. To get straight to the point, this band’s style is absolute and true to their promise, for their influences scream out the best traits of both Carnifex and Angelmaker….This is an easy 8/10. Deathcore the way it should be.” – PIG SQUEALS AND BREAKDOWNS
“This is heavy and catchy deathcore, incredibly intense, which also brings in elements of extreme and black metal. Inspired by bands such as Necrophagist, Despised Icon and Thy Art Is Murder, this is one heck of an EP.” – Frame Music

“If you’re looking keen to re-live your Deathcore scene days, you might want to cop this release from Creatures, a Deathcore killing machine from Canada. ‘II’ is a 5 track EP playing in the vein of Veil of Maya, Impending Doom and Carnifex with some touches of Black Metal. “- Dissecting the Euphony

“The band’s Deathcore is both well executed and produced, and they push the right buttons to get this quite effective.” – Metal Norge
