Saprophyte is an experimental metal band based out of Toronto, Ontario and is primarily influenced by death, progressive and thrash metal, but also takes in much from the genres of jazz, reggae and progressive rock. The band, formed in late 2008, has undergone several line-up changes before settling on the current one in March of 2009. Since recently establishing a solid line-up, Saprophyte has already shared the stage with the likes of Odium and Shatterpoint, and has recently released their first EP. One can imagine Saprophyte’s sound as a potent mushroom fused with the DNA of Opeth, Mastdodon and Death, and fertilized with the seed of Pink Floyd.

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.
