This week we uploaded every track on the debut with the exception of "Transcending the Macrocosm," due to the size of the file, this one you can check out over at our bandcamp page, so fear not.
Been quite some time since we posted an update, since our last entry Cryptos spent several months jamming and performing shows with the band Project Armageddon while Depravis spent his time composing material for the next Spectral Manifest album. So far this year, the band has opened for the legendary Venom Inc and is now assembling riffs and ideas for the aforementioned follow-up to the late 2014 self-titled debut. Definite song titles include As Moths To Flame, Lightless Burroughs Beneath, The Phantom Depths and Through Endless Void. More shows to be announced last spring/early summer.
Some of you many have heard that we have parted ways with our bassist, Ulfr Thorvaldson following our appearance at the Las Vegas Death Fest. He is still a a member of the family, he relocated to Colorado and we wish him well. Our new bassist is Jd De La Rosa, who produced the album, as well as plays guitar for Severance, drums for Daggra and a bunch of stuff in a bunch of other bands! We are very fortunate to have him aboard for as long as his time allows. We just played our first show with him, no rehearsal and it went really well. Up next we will be performing at the 5th annual Building Temples From Death fest in Houston, TX on Sept. 24th at Fitzgerald's.
New material is also in the works, as more develops on that front , we will update.
Here we are in the second quarter of the year 2015 and things have been moving right along. The album is out on Ossuary Industries, response has been fantastic and we have so far been the first US death metal band to grace a Hermes Music stage, performed at A Day in the Valley of Death IV Fest, shared the stage with Robert Lowe (Solitude Aeturnus, ex-Candlemass) and are confirmed for the Las Vegas Death VII and Building Temples From Death V Fest. Stay tuned for more announcements in the near future!
