Welcome to our website.
We are currently working on "Guilty as Charged…..Live" and songs for a new record to be released in 2012.

As Iron Maiden was to England and Metallica was to San Francisco, Culprit was to Seattle. For a generation that grew up on Kiss, Rush, and Ted Nugent, Culprit proved that Seattle and the Northwest could rock with the best. Inspired by Culprit, thousands went on to form bands. Others who were in awe of the musicianship and popularity were inspired to try other styles of rock or metal music. In part, you can thank Culprit for their influence on Sound Garden, Pearl Jam, Mud Honey, Alice-In-Chains, Queensryche, and even Nirvana.....

The interaction and energy between Culprit and their fans is pure magic. With an army of head bangers in front of them, Culprit dominated stages in a way the Northwest had never seen before.....

Featuring John DeVol and Kjartan Kristoffersen with a twin guitar attack, crisscrossing the stage like charging animals; Scott Earl, an “in your face” bass player, flying through the air while scissor kicking or at the front edge of the stage, teetering on monitors; Bud Burrill, a powerhouse drummer, towering over the stage, keeping it all together while being totally locked in with Scott; and, Jeff L’Heureux, a vocalist like no other, overseeing it all with his intense voice and great sense of humor.....

Culprit delivered what people craved: intense high-energy metal in a British sounding vein, complete with cascading duo-guitar runs, split second time changes, staggeringly complex rhythms and piercing vocals that adds uniqueness to the band’s overall sound. Enjoy the taste of energy and insanity that is Culprit!....
