Cryptopsy - Bassist Quits The Band

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 - New Project By Ex-Cryptopsy Vocalist

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.

Also, I remember a talk with (ex-Cryptopsy guitarist) Steve Thibault about ten years ago, in which he said something about having one more album left in him. As it turns out, he didn't, but I've often thought about that, and I figure I might have one or two left to expiate. As the millennium progresses, so does the aural assault perpetrated by really nasty practitioners of the Black Art; good. I just want to add my voice to the global chorus of discomfiture. And so, I will.

I'm still into doing live stuff but we'll have to see about that. There is also some material being written for a second release, and we'll probably have to put up a Facebook page, too, at some point. Other than that, I'm just looking forward to being dead, but then, aren't we all."

Nader Sadek - Band Ft. Mayhem, Morbid Angel, Cryptopsy Members Signs With Season Of Mist

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.

Says Sadek: "My general association with death metal, deals with the notion of false perceptions, and how great individuality can be smothered by the weight of an overwhelming environment. This idea is ever-present throughout all my work. Each of the players in this album played key roles in their respective bands, facing difficult challenges, and yet taking their bands to higher levels. Their talent as well as their tenacity has always intrigued me. As such, they fit perfectly in this project."

"I've been looking forward to doing this recording for months", Steve Tucker comments. "Nader does some very interesting art and I enjoy helping him achieve his twisted vision. It's rare to get to play alongside a drummer with the abilities that Flo possesses. It's a bonus that I get the opportunity to jam with professionals such as Rune and Flo. It'll be brutal."

Flo Mounier adds: "It's amazing that artists with different backgrounds can come together to create something so extreme and so dark but yet have so much fun doing so! It has been a pleasure working with Nader and Steve in the past and I'm looking forward to experimenting with Rune's unique style, I can't wait to start laying down the extreme with my boys."

Rune Eriksen: "When first being approached by Nader to collaborate with him, Steve and Flo, I was immediately caught up by the idea of it. Not only is Nader's concept and reasons for doing this of an inspirational character in itself, but also the very thought of collaborating with musicians such as Steve and Flo seemed like an opportunity not to miss."

Cryptopsy - Guitarist Leaves The Band

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."

Cryptopsy - New Video Online

Centuria Media press release:

"The unstoppable Montreal killing machine, Cryptopsy, are currently wrapping up a very successful European tour that will immediately lead them into this year's crushing Summer Slaughter North American touring package.

This trek marks their first stateside run in support of their career defining release, "The Unspoken King", which could quite possibly also be their most brutal, yet dynamic offering. The much anticipated new effort is set for a June 24th release.

Cryptopsy recently shot a new video with acclaimed director David Brodsky (GWAR, Soilent Green) for the album's vicious opening cut "Worship Your Demons." The clip captures the band's unrelenting, frenetic stage energy and it is sure to catch your attention. It made its exclusive, online debut through the Headbangers Ball Blog today and premieres on MTV2 this Sat. night. Click here to check it out now."

Drummer Flo Mounier comments:

"It is with pleasure that we announce the new Cryptopsy video, shot and directed by David Brodsky and the Mygoodeye team (GWAR, Soilent Green). The video is for the song "Worship Your Demons" off of the new album, "The Unspoken King". David and his crew found an awesome, dilapidated location in upstate NYC for this shoot and we actually had to build a floor since there wasn't one there when we arrived. This is a straight up, brutal and in-your-face, punishing live performance clip that pulls no punches. It's basically two minutes of unabashed aggression and we hope you all like it.
We had a lot of fun doing this and we would like to thank David and his crew for a fantastic job, and a most friendly environment. Professionalism is always appreciated in this business. Check it out!"

Cryptopsy - European Tour Announced

Canadian masters of brutality Cryptopsy are currently putting the finishing touches on their sixth full-length studio album, "The Unspoken King". The band recently announced the addition of new frontman Matt McGachy (3 Mile Scream) and keyboards/samplist Maggie Durand to their line-up. Vocalist Matt comments the work on the new album as follows:
"The studio process has been very fulfilling. We have just recently finished all of the vocal tracks and the samples are in the process of being completed. The songs are just as brutal as on the previous albums while being far more concise. We have even brought in ex-Ion Dissonance vocalist Gabriel McCaughry to add some vocals to a track called 'Anoint The Dead'. Some of the other tracks on the album are called 'Worship Your Demons', 'The Headsmen' and 'Bemoan The Martyr'."

Regretfully, Cryptopsy have been forced to cancel their recently announced tour of South America in March, after drummer Flo Mounier broke his knee cap. Mounier had completed the drum tracking process for the group's new album prior to the incident, so it did not affect the recording. The tour of South America is expected to be re-scheduled later in 2008.

European Cryptopsy fans will be delighted to hear that the band will be touring Europe right on time of the release of their highly anticipated new effort in May-June 2008, supported by Decrepit Birth and Unmerciful. So, prepare to be crushed!

Cryptopsy - Kicks Out 'Lord Worm'

Guitarist Alex Auburn of the Canadian death metallers Cryptopsy has confirmed that the band has once again parted ways with singer Lord Worm (a.k.a. Dan Greening). No reason was given for Lord Worm's departure, but according to Auburn, this time the vocalist was "kicked out" of the band and didn't leave of his own accord.

Cryptopsy is currently looking to audition candidates to fill the positions of singer/frontman and keyboardist/samplist. Vocalists must be able to sing in clean voice, on pitch, and also be able to scream/growl. If you are motivated and would like to try out, e-mail the band at crymusic@hotmail.com. If you have a criminal record, don't bother auditioning, as this means you can't tour.
