Culprit  


Culprit's Guilty As Charged remains my favorite Shrapnel release of all time, featuring solid classic metal with a technical edge, unique vocals from Jeff L'Heureux, and top-notch guitarwork from from the duo of Kjartan Kristofferson and John DeVol, living up to Shrapnel's reputation as a guitar-dominated label. Sadly, the band never got to record a second album, as the departure of Kristofferson and bassist Scott Earl to TKO eventually brought about the breakup of the band. L'Heureux and DeVol also recorded post-Culprit albums with other bands (Mistrust and DeVol, respectively), but the magic of Guilty As Charged was never duplicated. The band did reunite in 2001 for some live shows, but apparently are no longer active.
