Cryptae Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
René came up with the idea of the band after slipping and bumping his head while standing on his toilet to hang a clock.

2.So far you have released a demo, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?
It sounds like a Twisted Mass Of Burnt Decay As Autopsy would say it. But hey, why describe what you can hear yourself:
Sentient Ruin Laboratories: https://sentientruin.bandcamp. com/album/cryptae
Cryptae: lbum/cryptae

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
Death, madness, the cosmos. It's death metal, what did you expect?

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Cryptae'?
See question 1. For those who wonder: We pronounce it as crypt-aye (like aye in Canada).

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?
We just started with this demo. So far no shows.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
We need to write some more first!

7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your  music by fans of experimental, black and death metal?
It has been overwhelmingly positive. We just wanted to record and release this demo ourselves, but before we knew it Mattia of Sentient Ruin mailed us to ask us if we were interested in joining the roster. Of course we said yes and he's doing a great job!

8.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a part of?
René is working on 666 projects at once, like Dead Neanderthals (https://deadneanderthals., Celestial Bodies (https://anticosmicwarfare., DungeönHammer (https://dungeonhammer. and his solo stuff (https://reneaquarius. Kees has a non metal related solo project (https://keespeerdeman.bandcam and occasionally plays live bass for the blackened punkband Invunche.

9.When can we expect a full length and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
Our demo is 1 month old at this moment. We haven't had the time to work on anything else yet.

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Most of the times we're too busy with out own bands/projects, but we listen to a very diverse range of things. We're both very fond of Macabre, the album Exploiting Dysfunction by Cephalic Carnage and former Dying Fetus drummer Kevin Talley.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?
More music.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Thanks for the support! Keep death metal sloppy.
