Crucible is a Danish speed metal band consisting of Thomas Carnell (guitar), Jon Brogård (guitar) and Phillip Butler (vocals). Some might also recognize Thomas from the band Impalers and Phillip from Pectora.

Crucible was formed by Jon and Thomas with the simple goal of playing uncompromising speed metal.

Spurred on by the ongoing NWOTHM movement and taking inspiration from bands like Riot City, Skull Fist, Racer X, Judas Priest, and Mötorhead they started working on a demo. Initially a small project that soon grew in scope and ambition, the demo ended up consisting of four original songs and a cover (Racer X).

Phil was later recruited to provide the vocals for the demo and decided to join as a full member of the band.

“The Savage Weapon” is out now on cassette (limited to 100 copies) and digital format via From The Vaults.
