“We strive to create. It is an essential part of who we are as individuals. We will only stop when we are dead!” – Matt
Cryptopsy vocalist Matt McGachy was awesome and checked in to tell us about the Back To The US 2015 Tour the death metal veteran tyrants are engaging in (Tickets HERE! Get them). Cryptopsy have been curdling blood since before you popped pubes, so give them respect! Also, check their new crowd funding effort and chip in, metalheads!
I’ll tell you what…I just rode 6 hours on a bus today. Mother’s Day I went to babysit my sister’s kids out of state as a favor. It was good to se family but the long ride back to Upstate, NY was ringing my ears. People in early summer in NYC are either amazing to look at, day walker hipster scum or Romero zombie/walkers who stink of piss and mental illness. I mean, it depends on where you are. I love NYC to death, even now. Still, I had forgotten to take my meds for 3 days and swicthed seats so a nice Asian couple could sit together and my last hour home this “large framed” woman in a sleeveless shirt was sweating and fainting on me half asleep, really edging me out. Seeing all this beautiful former countryside roll by as I came back through Rhode Island and Mass and then crawled past NJ adult gift stores and empty lots, it bummed me out. I try to be compassionate and believe in the best in humanity but sometimes you see the swarming, hungry masses just now learning to not have GMOs in their Chipotle and you wanna barf and scream “why, God?! Why are we such slaves to wolfish, murderous impulse.” Then you want to listen to metal and scream and cry.
Fucking Cryptopsy, whichever album (and I do mean ALL of them – seriously, how could you think “The Headsmen” wasn’t fucking insane?!!) have more guts, dedication and tenacity than half the citizens of the United States in guitarist Chris Donaldson ‘s little picking finger alone. These dudes have slaved over countless riffs, logged many miles and held on to the torch of extreme and deadly music long before social media troll-core blog page comment nazis started wearing big ass ear gauges.Add to My Radar
