Crypticus - The Rites of Infestation

Art by Derek Waugh

Crypticus - The Rites of Infestation is groovy old school death metal. You've heard it before but a nice meaty low-end, deliciously evil sounding vocals, solid drumming and pretty soon your head is banging. That is what uncomplicated, thrashy death metal does to you, and that ain't a bad thing. The EP includes three Crypticus originals and a cover of the Runemagick classic Into the Realm of Death.
