This diversity of influences and genres is clearly reflected in the band’s song writing. As the bass player Gerald states, The songs may be 8 minutes long and may go through several genres within those 8 minutes.. . .one moment you may hear a melodic and bluesy guitar solo and the next you hear a thrashing death metal riff.
It’s definitely not standard stuff, but it still works and it’s still metal.. that’s why we call it experimental metal. When the songs change into different tempos and intensities, so does their vibes. A song like Surreal Actuality starts with a heavy and melodic section reminiscent of Death, and then breaks down into a quiet and peaceful interlude before coming back into a thrash-metal ending. The stark contrast in the songs really brings the listener on an emotional trip.
Drummer Crazyhorse explains, The songs end up being really psychedelic. .they’re like a mushroom trip.. . hence the name Saprophyte.
You’re on an emotional roller-coaster. At first you’re floating in a serene section of melody and then you’re assaulted with the intensity of double-bass rolls and thrashing guitars. Over the course of one song you may be completely relaxed at one moment and find you’re heart pounding in the next. Having just released their EP, Saprophyte plans to play shows throughout Ontario, gaining respect in the Ontario metal scene, before moving on to Quebec. Priding themselves on unflinching discipline, cohesiveness and professionalism, Saprophyte will continue to expand and feed outwards.
