Karybdis are a British heavy metal band from London, formed in 2009. They fuse death metal riffs with more melodic elements and incorporate atmospheric effects into their sound to create a unique heavy metal style. They are currently signed to Beasting Records and are soon to release their debut full-length album From the Depths.


The band's name is shared with a sea monster from Greek mythology which was said to be a spawner of whirlpools who together with Scylla created a smashing gauntlet of death from which few seafarers escaped.[1] On 4 July 2012 Karybdis played an album release show at The Purple Turtle in London to celebrate the release of their debut album From The Depths.[2]
