Creepmime were a Dutch death metal band active from 1991 to 1997, and recorded two full-length albums, both on Mascot Records.


The band was formed in 1991 in Leiden, eventually settling on a line-up consisting of Rogier Hakkaart, Andy Judd, Marja Koelewijn, en Gerrit Koekebakker. In February 1992, the band recorded a metal demo titled Anthems for a Doomed Youth, which led to a record deal with Mascot Records. In August 1993, after the rhythm section was replaced, the debut album Shadows was recorded. Creepmime played in support of Cynic in the Netherlands and briefly toured the Netherlands with them.

In 1994 and 1995 more line-up changes followed, but in August 1995 Creepmime recorded their second album, Chiaroscuro. The release was followed by a three-week European tour with countrymates Sinister, followed by a Dutch tour with Threnody and Ministry of Terror. After the departure of Andy Judd, the band fell apart.

In 1997, Giezen, Van der Graaf, and Brama restarted Creepmime and started writing new songs. However, due to a knee injury suffered by Brama, the band collapsed again in 1998.
