CRYPTOPSY picture
Originating from the Montreal area, this group first appeared in 1992, when it was called Necrosis; in the same year it was reincarnated under the name of Cryptopsy. With just a demo called Ungentle Exhumation and then the album Blasphemy Made Flesh (1994), the group acquired a solid reputation on the international scene. Their release of None So Vile in 1996 was the first burst of brilliance in their career. From that point the group clearly outclassed other groups by reinventing the style, today categorized as extreme music. Their album None So Vile will always be considered a death metal classic.

In 1997, the addition of the vocalist Michael DiSalvo replacing Lord Worm added a very intense front man to the group and also willy nelson being added in as the keyboard player added some much needed intensity. After a remarkable performance at the Milwaukee MetalFest, the band received a

UMUR
"Cryptopsy" is the self-titled 7th full-length studio album by Canadian death metal act Cryptopsy. The album was released by Cryptopsy/Defen Society in association with Revolution Harmony/Candlelight Records in September 2012.

Cryptopsy are widely perceived as one of the leading technical death metal acts on the scene and especially the band´s second full-length studio album "None So Vile (1996)" are often mentioned as the band´s finest achivement. They´ve released quite a few other great albums over the years though, but they hit a brick wall when they released the controversial "The Unspoken King (2008)". Fans and critics alike found the more metalcore oriented sound of that album a far stretch from what they expected from the band and Cryptopsy suffered quite a bit of harsh criticism because of that. Maybe that´s why this self-titled album is more in the technical death metal style again.

The music on the 8 track, 34:53 minutes long album is brutal, fast and technical death metal with the occasional progressive twist. The latter mostly in the shape of rather awkwardly placed jazzy sections. Brutal technical death metal which abruptly shifts gear into smooth jazz sections and back into brutal technical death metal territories again is something that seldom works wonders unless you have a very open mind for such experiments. To me it almost completely spoils the dark and intense atmosphere of the album and my listening experience suffers from it. If the jazzy sections had been more well incorporated to the tracks it might have worked better, but they appear out of nowhere in the middle of intense death metal sections and I think it´s an odd choice to include them. The rest of the music is basically tech death metal heaven. Extremely fast and varied drumming by the prolific Flo Mounier, razor sharp and inventive riffing and brutal growling vocals.

If you can look past the rather awkward combination of brutal technical death metal and jazz or maybe even enjoy the combination of the two styles, "Cryptopsy" is actaully quite the treat. It´s well produced, very well played and well written too. I just wish they had kept it more basic and hadn´t branched out into jazz territory. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is warranted.

I first came across these Canadians in 2003 when Century Media sent me ‘None So Live’ to review and it just blew me away. Since then I have kept track of what the band has been doing and have managed to get pretty much all of their albums, so when I saw that a double CD ‘Best Of’ was being released I knew I was in for a treat. What we have here is a great way of discovering the band’s music, with the two discs having more than two hours of music.

The first disc is subtitled ‘16 Stabwounds’ and kicks off with three new exclusive songs from last year before going through the band’s history since they signed to CM in 1998 so there are cuts from ‘The Unspoken King’ (2008), ‘Once Was Not’ (2005), ‘And Then You’ll Beg’ (2000) and ‘Whisper Supremacy’ (1998). The second disc is subtitled ‘Bury The Past Alive’ and contains more obscure and rarer material songs from “None So Vile” (1996) and ‘Blasphemy Made Flesh’ (1994) before showcasing live material from different lin-ups and periods. The last four songs are a raw yet obviously effective 4-song rehearsal recording from 1998, which originally got the band signed to the label.

I was sent this as a download to review so I haven’t seen the physical copy but apparently it comes with extensive sleeve notes, and given what I can see in terms of press information and the brilliant cover artwork I believe it. This is a great introduction to the best Death Metal band ever to come out of Canada, and if you like the genre and/or the band then this is absolutely essential from first to last as no-one does it quite like these guys – 32 songs of brilliant raw aggression. www.centurymedia.com

"Blasphemy Made Flesh" is the debut full-length studio album by Canadian death metal act Cryptopsy. The album was released in November 1994 by Invasion Records. Following the group´s later success and rise to death metal stardom, "Blasphemy Made Flesh" has been re-released by Displeased Records and Century Media Records. The Century Media Records version has a different cover artwork.

The music on the album is US inspired brutal and technically well played death metal. Right off the bat it´s obvious what a clever and skilled drummer Flo Mounier actually is. The man is an absolute power house and whenever the music becomes a bit death metal monotone (and it does), the drumming always ensure that my attention doesn´t wander. The rest of the band are also skilled musicians and lead vocalist Lord Worm has a pretty distinct growling style, which is always appreciated by this reviewer. While song-titles like "Open Face Surgery", "Swine of the Cross" and "Pathological Frolic" maybe don´t reveal it, the lyrics on the album are actually very clever. The content may be extreme, dealing with death, murder, blasphemy and other usual suspects in death metal, but the way they are written set them apart from most other death metal lyrics. They feature a kind of dark and bizarre humour which provide the album with an extra dimension that´s greatly appreciated in my book.

"Blasphemy Made Flesh" isn´t a perfect album by any means. The production isn´t the strongest (that snare drum sound drives me crazy in a bad way) and the songwriting could have been a bit more varied but I found myself enjoying the album quite a bit anyways. Especially when reading the lyrics while listening to the album. I´d say a 3 - 3.5 star (65%) rating is deserved.

Keeping the Cadaver Dogs Busy

Cryptopsy is undoubtedly one of those bands that try their fans fidelity every now and then. On ONCE WAS NOT they underwent another transformation, this time into more experimental, jazz-fusion influenced (and still very technical) grind/death metal band. I must admit it was a very welcome change, especially Lord Worm's comeback, as I'm not a huge fan of the WHISPER SUPREMACY/AND THEN YOU'LL BEG era, with terrible vocals by Mike DiSalvo.

The album is produced in a modern but a bit odd way and while I really like it, I think it's an acquired taste. The drums are very high in the mix - just behind vocals - with strong, punching bass drum and very organic snare drum and cymbals. Bass and guitars are kind of hidden so during blast beats they tend to be a bit drowned out... but still, I think a perfect balance between organic, brutal sound and selectivity has been achieved here. Cryptopsy presents here some of the most unrestrained songwriting ever heard in deathgrind. The record is pervaded with an atmosphere reminiscent of a surreal trip through cold, post-apocalyptic world where horror and comedy merge into one grotesque amalgam. With the use of jazz-fusion-inspired riffs and clever industrial undertones, the band managed to create nine well-flowing, brutal, wild and unpredictable compositions. The stuff Flo Mounier's doing with his drum-kit is just beyond belief. Brutal, well flowing and jazz influenced drumming combined with painfully technical and jazzy axe-craft from Alex Auburn make this album a compelling experience. However, combined with rasping and unintelligible yapping by Lord Worm, the music takes on a whole new dimension. It's weirdly organic and surprisingly technical. I'd even say it's scary and oh yes, it's absolutely fantastic!

That's a bold album by Cryptopsy and I think one of the most interesting death metal efforts out there. Despite being a little bit inconsistent, it still has an uncanny atmosphere and most of all, it boasts some of the most well-flowing brutal death metal. If you're looking for a different approach to death metal without sacrificing brutality, this album is for you.

Brutal death metal isn't a genre I am normally a fan of, nor even accustomed to. I have never been a fan of such bands as Cannibal Corpse or suffocation; any death metal I listen to on a regular basis has some connection to prog. None So Vile, however, blows away nearly all other death metal that I have come across over the years.

This album is sheer, raw, crushing brutality. The production is of a low-enough quality to fit in with other brutal death metal albums of this style, yet crisp enough so that each instrument can be clearly heard. The guitars provide nonstop dissonant riffs; some tremolo picked, others with a fair amount of groove. Solos are also present throughout, a few adding hints of neoclassical styling. The bass is not as prevalent in the mix as it was in Blasphemy Made Flesh, but it also doesn't feel out of place as it often did on that album.

While the stringed instruments may provide the musical backbone of the band, the show is stolen by drummer Flo Mounier. Mounier essentially gives a 30-minute performance of blast beats and lightning-fast fills, resulting in what is one of the greatest metal drumming albums of all time.

The instruments of the band are brutally heavy, and Worm's vocals are no exception. Imagine the sound of a dozen chainsaws emulated through human vocal cords and you will have what Lord Worm sounds like. There may not be any 40-second screams on this album, but the diversity shown in Worm's growls, grunts, and howls is impressive. His lyrics are also of note; relatively few bands would have such "graceful" lyrics as "Pardon, please, the narrow confinement of your limbs/Unfortunately, it's necessary for your correction/Shriek to your heart's content, if you wish/I promise you pain and nightmares, in that sequence."

This is one of the most brutal albums of all time, and a landmark classic of death metal. Any fan of extreme metal should experience this aural assault at least once.
