about

From India not Scandinavia, emerges a band expanding upon the sound laid down by the masters. With mixing done by the dark death metal expert Greg Chandler at Priory Recording Studios (Cruciamentum, Chthe'ilist, etc.) and mastering by the legend Dan Swano at Unisound Studios (Asphyx, Bloodbath, etc), everything has been done to perfectly capture the right sound intended for music of this ilk. With influences ranging from Demilich, Adramelech, Demigod, (early) Amorphis, Funebre and Nihilist, Darkrypt have taken the best elements of all and forged a sound that retains the local flavour and yet creates music that's classic in intent, memorable as well as catchy. With guest appearances by Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, Putrevore, etc.), Nitin Rajan (Primitiv), not to mention the lyrical contribution of Riju Dasgupta (Albatross, Primitiv), this is probably the most ambitious debut by a new band from the country. Even devoid of all these contributions, the album on its own merit is rife with excellent riffs, varying tempos capturing a myriad contrasting moods, able percussion propelling the mind-melting structures, and thoughtful vocal delivery so as not to kill the effectiveness of death metal that's heaving with an ability to express.

The artwork too has been done by none other than Turkka G. Rantanen (Demilich, Adramelech, Demigod, etc.)
