The Press Release:
Century Media Records are happy to announce the signing of Dutch futuristic multi-metal eruption CRYPTOSIS. To celebrate, the band have just released their new single and music video for “Decypher”. Watch the music video HERE. (BTW I will be doing a full video and single review soon).
“In light of recent events we are beyond happy that we are teaming up with Century Media Records to release and promote our debut album. It feels really good to work with such a professional team that understands our artistic vision and gives us a lot of freedom and resources to take everything we do to the next level,” states CRYPTOSIS about the signing announcement.
“Getting completely surprised by a new band doesn’t happen very often, but CRYPTOSIS really impressed me. What this young band manages to deliver is nothing but a mind-blowing hell ride through the realm of extreme metal. What CRYPTOSIS do is not only for fans of Vektor, Coroner, Sadus or Demolition Hammer, but generally for everyone who is into death and thrash metal played at high speed on the highest level of aggression and technicality. The usual label hyperbole? If you think so, then check out the song. Welcome to Century Media, guys. We couldn’t be happier to have you with us,” adds Philipp Schulte, Director of Century Media Records.
A million miles from the old school fury of their previous incarnation, CRYPTOSIS have a sound that defies expectations and limitations with equal intensity. A dizzying blend of visceral extremity, symphonic pomp and wild, progressive invention. Elements of blackened death, progressive thrash and grandiose symphonic metal are all present and correct, but CRYPTOSIS have combined them in an exhilarating, unprecedented new form that promises to satisfy on both primal and cerebral levels.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m not going to lie and say that I’ve been behind the band for some time now and have only heard of them from this press release that came care of the folks handing all the Century Media Records affairs. I did make sure to let the video stream in the background while I culled this news together and I have to say that I like what I am hearing and think that this will be an excellent band to catch in concert. I’m sure a lot of you will agree with me and would be willing to get behind this band and now this kind of thing is even more important based on the virus. Bands are suffering out there and gigs are cancelled in many places until who knows when. Stay tuned for more news like this and I will see you next time around. Chime in down below if you’d like to toss your own thoughts about this news into the mix. All topical notions will be moved to the top of the approval queue…
