Fraz Krypts sound awesomely crushing. This is death doom metal at it's very best. Cavernous, dark, bleak, sonic pummelling. Nice melodic sections, then back to the slow chugging decent into the endless darkness. Favorite track: The Withering Titan.

Atanamar Sunyata Red-hot, gurgling mid-paced death-doom with a guitar tone to bathe in. Krypts once heaved mud at your ears, but they’ve since learned to hit the listener full-on with the shovel. Removal of slap-happy Autopsy vibes makes for a sharper experience and allows sinister sensations to shine. A pleasing evolution; perhaps marking Krypts as a spiritual successor to the dearly departed Anhedonist...

Matthew Toye Krypts continue their leadership of the Finnish death metal underbelly. Their latest opus is crushing and was worth the three year wait. Favorite track: The Withering Titan.

about

Three years may have passed since ‘Unending Degradation’ but KRYPTS have lost none of their excruciating power that
made their debut album such a special one, erecting a bridge
in between their homeland glorious and downtuned early
90’s glory and something even more sinister and doom-
ladden. And the arrival in 2015 of Jukka Aho from
GOREPHILIA on second guitar has done nothing to alter that
rare chemistry, on the contrary…

Just like its predecessor, ‘Remnants of Expansion’ reeks of
that ancient feeling but dives even deeper into the abyss.
Clocking altogether at 33 minutes, there’s something very
majestic and solemn about its five songs. Like a serpent
circling its prey, the Finns like to play shadow and it’s never
truer than on the album’s opener, the monstrous 10 minutes
+ ‘Arrow of Entropy’. But its follow-up ‘The Withering Titan’
for instance starts off with Mongol throat chanting, two
minutes later the listener is buried under a barrage to bury
the listener under a deluge of blastbeats, only to let the
instrumental title-track drown you in the cold and
bottomless waters of funeral doom.

Once again adorned with Timo Ketola cryptic artwork,
‘Remnants of Expansion’ is like a big haunted house at a top
of a dead trees infested hill on the outskirts of town by a
moonless night. Grand in scope, seemingly devoid of any
human touch and yet towering over us like a malevolent
entity. Behold. - written by Olivier "Zoltar" Badin
