Dutch metallers Cryptosis have officially inked a deal with Century Media Records for the release of their first LP. To celebrate the news, the band have unleashed a new song dubbed “Decypher” (check it out below).
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.
Director of Century Media Records, Philipp Schulte, notes:
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.
In addition, a press release adds:
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.
