As members of the Decibel Magazine Hall of Fame, it seems only natural that death metal legends Cryptopsy team up with the ‘zine to unleash a brand new track off their forthcoming, self-titled album. In a Deciblog exclusive, the song “The Golden Square Mile,” which deals with an unsolved murder that took place in the band’s native Montreal is currently streaming at this location.
Cryptopsy, which stands as a furious return to the band’s extreme, tech-minded roots,
will be available the week of September 11th to those who pre-ordered from the band directly at www.cryptopsy.ca. Official street dates will vary by region. The album was produced by Chris Donaldson and Cryptopsy and engineered and mixed by Chris Donaldson.
Praise for Cryptopsy
“A startlingly intense and memorably brutal self-titled album. Surely the most solid collection of tech-death songs released in 2012.” (9/10)
– George Pacheco (Outburn)
“This will be in my list of top ten albums of the year. Menacing as hell!”
– Lee Rochester (The New Review)
“A welcome return for the Canadian masters of vicious technical fury.”
– Lee MacBride (Terrorizer)
Cryptopsy is an extreme metal band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. During the past twenty years, Cryptopsy have wreaked havoc throughout the metal genre by releasing six studio albums (Blasphemy Made Flesh, None So Vile, Whisper Supremacy, And Then You’ll Beg, Once Was Not and The Unspoken King), a live album (None So Live) and an EP (Ungentle Exhumation), which have confronted and invigorated the conventional approach to writing extreme music. Now in 2012, Cryptopsy have returned to their roots in order to craft their newest endeavor entitled Cryptopsy. The band has said that Cryptopsy will be their most brutal, technical and dynamic offering as of yet.
