Here we go, dutch experimental raw death metal deformers CRYPTAE are about to be back with their long-awaited debut album Nightmare Traversal, a hallucinogenic fractal of raw free-form raw death metal devastation that will trucidate your synapses! In celebration of the album’s imminent release, we’re stoked today to bring you an exclusive premiere of the band’s first-ever music video for the track “Cryptic Passage”, an unparalleled and surreal audio-visual experience that confirms the Dutch duo as one of the most unique, visionary, and insane entities in contemporary death metal and extreme metal vanguards in general.
On the abhorrent death metal deformity and its accompanying video, you will immediately realize how unique and uncategorizable the band’s aesthetic is and what Cryptae are all about: lysergic nightmarish aural chaos influenced by architectural nightmares and horrific frameworks where death metal is used as a hallucinogen, as a psychological weapon to destroy the listener’s mind and disintegrate it inside their fractal maze. Utter aural chaos and devastation immersed in a suffocating geometric delirium!
Nightmare Traversal drops on October 2 2020 via Sentient Ruin, pre-order vinyl, tapes and digital HERE!
