It's not often one gets to experience a musical partnership growing in front of your very eyes. Since the explosion of MySpace, fans from all over the world have been witnesses to this unique and fascinating group. Always in the public eye and never afraid to share their life experiences with their loyal "Freaks" (Fans). From the humble beginnings of the Perth music scene, two musicians with a passion for creating exciting, original music join forces to create the game changing Goth/Metal band that is The Creptter Children.
“Prepare to have your knowledge of Aussie music well and truly blown apart”. Rick Palin – The Flame.
The chance meeting of Iballa Chantelle to N8oR by a mutual friend was like two atomic sub-particles smashing into each other. The result? A musical match made in heaven (or in this case, Hell!). Iballa Chantelle's solid and imaginative songs about horror, forbidden love, murder and spirituality along with her powerful and instantly recognizable voice was a perfect marriage for N8oR's knack for producing ear catching, exciting music.
2006 began the rise of Perth's newest band in the local scene. Their dynamic and unapologetic rawness of their live shows quickly began to draw in big crowds not only from the more hardcore music listeners but also from audiences who were seeking for a more theatrical, creative performance.
After a year of playing to the Perth music scene The Creptter Children hit the studio to record their debut album titled Possessed. The album dropped worldwide on October 2009 with distribution by MGM/Green Media. Upon it's release it became an instant hit amongst fans of the Goth and Metal genre praising it for it's originality and ability to leave a unforgettable sense excitement in the air.
"Seriously, you are going to have to open your heads up and get ready for some crazy mental masturbation”. Groupie - Local Band Reviewer.
“The music is energetic, and for you metalheads out there, it certainly isn’t lacking in the “rock the crap out of you” department”. CackBlabbath.com
Not only do the songs sound exhilarating off the cd but also their live shows are performed with such passion and an "in you face" attitude which can only be felt at hard hitting rock shows. With such a stellar stage presence The Creptter Children were given the opportunities to open international bands Budgie and Deathstars.
In 2010 California got to experience the much anticipated Possessed promotional tour. Including performances at the world famous Whisky A Go Go and the devilishly popular Batcave Nightclub. Their popularity not only helped to sell their music but also secured endorsements from California's own Lip Service Clothing along with Ibanez Guitars.
Having returned to Australia, after their successful mini tour, The Creptter Children now call Melbourne "Home". Iballa Chantelle's own clothing label Vampress Fashion is behind the band's original look and style. Throw in N8oR's "The Crib Recording Studio" into the mix and you got one hell of a talented duo to mess with.
2016 saw The Creptter Children signed by Imminence Records (US) and are currently in the studio recording their new (yet to be titled) EP.
The single "Watching You" is now available through iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, Amazon and all good online stores.
