Following the recent departure of Cryptopsy's former bassist Youri Raymond, the Canadian death metal outfit has been quick to announce a replacement. Olivier Pinard (also in Neuraxis) has taken over "4 string" duties. Pinard has officially joined Cryptopsy on a full time basis. Check him out below playing to the band's "Cold Hate Warm Blood".
Guitarist-turned-bassist Youri Raymond of Canadian metallers Cryptopsy has issued the following statement on the band's MySpace page:
"I am officially announcing my departure of the band Cryptopsy. At this time, we feel it's in the best interest of both the band and I to part ways. As a musician, moving from guitar to bass was a great challenge, but honestly, I never really felt comfortable in that position and my motivation in general was stagnating.
I'm now moving forward and will release an album in 2012 on guitar/lead vocals with my band Unhuman and I hope Jon, Matt, Chris Flo and the new guy who will fill in in the bass spot the very best with the upcoming album and what might be the "real" Cryptopsy coming back! Thanks again fans and friends for your endless support!"
Rage Nucléaire - the new project led by ex-Cryptopsy vocalist Dan "Lord Worm" Greening - are finishing up the last pieces of their upcoming debut album, entitled Unrelenting Fucking Hatred.
Said Lord Worm to Bravewords: "Rage Nucléaire is a hate-filled blend of melodic black metal and violent industrial. It's a three-piece and its other component parts are Alvater on guitar, synth, drum programming, and background vocals, and Dark Rage on guitar, background vocals, and secret things even I'm not privy to.
A full-length CD, Unrelenting Fucking Hatred, is currently in the works. The three of us seem to share the same bleak world vision, for one thing, and this shows up very clearly in the compositions. Alvater used to be in the godly Frozen Shadows, and I know he hasn't spent nearly a fraction of his accumulated rage. Dark Rage and I don't do a lot of cretinous smiling, either.
Lead guitarist and songwriter Jon Levasseur has rejoined Canadian extreme metallers Cryptopsy. Youri Raymond (Secret Chiefs 3), who had been playing guitar, is now handling bass duties following Levassour's return and bassist Eric Langois' recent departure from the band. The band is also working on new material.
Season of Mist is proud to welcome innovative Egyptian-born artist Nader Sadek to the roster.
Known as the designer responsible for the stage imagery on Mayhem's 2009 US tour, Nader decided to delve deeper into the metal world by forming his own project. He thus teamed up with guitarist Rune Eriksen (Ava Inferi, Aura Noir, ex-Mayhem), bassist Steve Tucker (ex-Morbid Angel) and drummer Flo Mounier (Cryptopsy) to create a death metal project under his own name.
Nader Sadek's debut is entitled In the Flesh and features compositions and performances by all four artists and has been set to a May 16th release in Europe, and a day later in the USA. The video for "Nigredo In Necromance" off the new album can be watched below.
The following statement was posted by Cryptopsy guitarist Alex Auburn:
"I am announcing my departure of the band Cryptopsy. There are many reasons why I must leave the band, and this has been going on for a while now, so I am quitting. The band and I believe it is better for me to go, so I am moving forward.
I want to thank the guys in Cryptopsy for an adventurous and crazy 10 years. It's been a great ride. I will especially miss the fans a great deal and I want to thank all of you for your awesome support throughout those years. Right now I need to take a break for a few months to reflect on my life and my future in music. As far as music goes, I might start my own band next summer but I don't know yet. In the meantime I am open to good offers and to join other forces."
