Krysaor is a metal band from France founded by Arnaud Carnielli (drums).

A first team is composed around him by Christophe Laurent (guitars), Varenfel (keyboards) [ex-Mytology, ex-Arianrod], Maxime Leclercq (vocals) [ex-Magic Kingdom, ex-Fairyland, who toured with renowned acts such as American band Kamelot], and Simon Etienne (bass).

Accompanied by Stolasprod for the artworks and counting on the support of some media such as Vinylestimes, Killer On The Loose and Tapage Nocturne in France, Planet Heavy in Spain and Via Nocturna in Portugal, the band releases 4 singles starting from August 2020.

During spring 2022, Gus Monsanto (vocals) [ex-Adagio, ex-Revolution Renaissance with Timo Tolkki when he left Stratovarius)  and Jules Brosset (bass) joined the team.

Thus, Krysaor records a new album with the new line-up during summer 2022.

Release date is set on January, 13th 2023 via French label M&O Music.
Promotion will be taken care of by M&O Office agency for France and Europe alongside WTPI agency for some specific events in France.

As per the music, the band’s inspiration is nourished by many different styles and genres.

Thus, Krysaor leads you through a strong heavy metal atmosphere with a slight touch of symphonic elements that are blended with some progressive structures from time to time. Of course, there’s more than meets the eye, and you have much more to discover by listening.

The lyrics are mostly tangled and tortured. They stand out as they tackle complex and deep topics with the use of simple words, within varied scenery and settings.
