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."

Yeh, I wonder if the last tour had anything to do with it. I don't think numbers were particularly high for such a band.
The new album must be the reason.

deathcore actually *giggles*

but in all evilness.. alternative? i hate that word with all my heart. isn't it bad enough that nu and progressive metal are considered 'alternative' for some warped reason, they throw in the '-core's as well?

Yes really great drummer... but now the good ol' Cryptopsy's far far away... Thryce you've just given us the perfect image of what the band's going on! (like Aborted to my eyes... metalcore isn't my passion!!!)

I'd bet a significant amount of money that the replacement will have "core" roots and most likely an emo fringe.

I liked new Cryptosy's album but I understand this dude's reasons if the new direction is the main issue

I am absolutely 100% not surprised by that. Lord Worm always wrote the most obtuse lyrics.
