Breaking out of L.A.’s local underground scene is no easy feat. Most bands are destined for a lifetime on the local circuit. Long time local staples, CREMATORIUM survived that having taken their DIY work ethic to the next level. They eventually signed a deal with Prosthetic Records in 2002. Now with several national tours under their belt and a solid fanbase, the band are looking to continue their ascent. Dan Dismal gave APESHIT the low down on CREMATORIUM‘s graduation from local band status and his ongoing efforts to help the L.A. metal scene continue to thrive.
