The unstoppable Montreal killing machine, CRYPTOPSY, has wreaked havoc throughout the extreme metal genre for more than a decade, but in 2008 the band has returned stronger than ever. CRYPTOPSY have ultimately crafted their career defining release, The Unspoken King, which could quite possibly also be their most brutal, yet dynamic offering.
Mounier states: "We as a band have, since the beginning, been experimenting and trying to come up with music that is fresh and new. This album is no different. So mundane to us is music with no purpose, no feeling and just plain repetitive. It was time for CRYPTOPSY to acquire new blood that would play out a vision we’ve seen for years. We took an approach that gives our music a huge dynamic range and brings out its power. Brutality, diversity, complexity, emotion and musicianship define this latest work.”
Reinventing and redefining metal's boundaries, CRYPTOPSY, recognized worldwide for infusing extreme music with awe-inspiring precision, rabidly dynamic rhythms and mouth-foaming viciousness, have earned music fans respect inside and outside the metal community. The band's viperous recordings and punishing live performance have confirmed their place in music's elite.
