Blackened death metal entity CRYPTS OF DESPAIR premiere stunning track via Decibel Magazine

Crypts of Despair are setting standards where it comes to dishing out dissonant death metal in these times without losing track of the power, aggression and catchiness. Every song of theirs is different within the same blackened death metal spectrum and just as memorable as the last one. Decibel Magazine premiered a stunning track of theirs AT THIS LINK. Excerpt – 

“Crypts of Despair don’t narrow their approach to death metal into micro-genres. In their bloody hands, death metal is a vast canvas splattered with the viscera of numerous influences. They boast the discordant atmospherics of Ulcerate. You can hear the blackened blasphemy of Belphegor. Don’t forget the doomy primordial domination of Incantation. “Excruciating Weight” demonstrates all of those traits with its churning rhythms and downcast menace”

Death metal band Crypts of Despair have made a quantum leap from their well-received debut full length to the new one. The progression is not merely aesthetic but intrinsic; it’s as if they’ve unlocked some inner beast by channelling diabolical forces through them. The music is at once ferocious, rife with unearthly and dissonant sounds, punctuated by hair-raising, eerie ambience. It embodies the perfect combination of face-melting aggression and electrifying atmosphere, with song structures remaining unpredictable and yet strangely coherent. The sound is absolutely pristine, able to express the band’s penchant for playing fast, devastating music as well as doing justice to the myriad variations that they incorporate. This is the perfect death metal album of the times, without any dilution of the raw appeal of the genre. The execution is next level and it’s an album that you will keep coming back to just because it has so much to offer in a refreshing manner. Delve deep into this one and the experience will be unforgettable.
