KRYPTERIA is a German-Korean four piece, fronted by leadsinger Ji-In Cho. Ji-In, who studied vocals and piano at the renowned Musikhochschule/Cologne, and her trio of band mates form one of Europe's hottest new live acts.
After teaming up at the end of 2004 the cosmopolitan foursome has left amazed audiences in its wake ever since: Not only because they deliver high class power hymns that effortlessly crossover to the melodic genre, but also because they stage a remarkably energetic and entertaining live performance that will rock your socks off.
Bewitching Ji-In, guitar/producer-ace Chris Siemons, and the thunderous grooves of human dynamo Frank Stumvoll on bass and showboating drummer deluxe S.C. Kuschnerus provide an epic feast for the ears, a killer show, plus infectious enthusiasm to boot all rolled into one.
Backed by a spectacular and celebrated promotional trip to Korea back in February 2006 KRYPTERIA are in especially hot demand in the Land of the Morning Calm, as documented by No.1 positions in the Hottracks international rock album charts, the video charts as well as the airplay charts.
During the second half of 2006 the band had been writing and recording their 2007 release "Bloodangel's Cry" with a vengeance, interrupted only by their Vietnamese concert debut, a set of tour dates with the legendary Deep Purple and their successful Wacken debut during the summer before enjoying a sold-out German tour alongside Subway to Sally and another blockbuster performance in front of 15.000 enthused Asian fans in Ho Chi Minh City.
Ready, willing, hungry and dangerous the eclectic foursome hit stages all over the world full-throttle again in 2007 and 2008 - to further introduce themselves and to present the explosive array of hot tracks off “Bloodangel’s Cry”.
