Fans of Portal, Altarage, and similarly deviated death metal, take note. Netherlands-based experimental death metal deviants Cryptae (who feature in their ranks members of experimental mind-benders like Dead Neanderthals and Celestial Bodies), debut with a demo/EP which attempts to dismantle the mind from within and aberrate the already aberrant even further. Building upon their gruesomely warped 90s death metal roots, and constructing angular, cerebral, and mentally abusive experimental rock/free jazz abstractions on top, Cryptae appear to have borrowed directly from the most deranged experimental/noise rock/raw punk (Swans, Magma, Discharge) to disfigure their already bludgeoning death metal deliriums beyond repair. The premise is the twisted and murky death metal of progenitors Immolation, Incantation, Morbid Angel etc. but the end conclusion stretches far beyond the realm of the graspable or the sane, into a place of omnipotent sonic wretchedness where even the most harrowing premises are crushed into a chasm of abhorrent and devouring experimentalism.
