Crypta - Echoes Of The Soul LP
Newly staffed Brazilian/Dutch death metal unit Crypta offer a raging sonic monster in a class of it's own with their long awaited debut offering, Echoes of the Soul. Formed in June 2019, the four-piece line up consists of vocalist and bassist Fernanda Lira and Luana Dametto on drums, both former members thrash metal frontrunners Nervosa, plus supremely talented guitarists Sonia Anubis (Cobra Spell, Burning Witches) and Tainá Bergamaschi (Hagbard). These four powerful women enforce a heightened level of potency and experience from their successful past and current projects, enhancing influences from both classic and modern death metal genres, plus significant extreme and black metal elements, to create a sound of their own. Echoes of the Soul was recorded in January 2021 at the Family Mob Studio (Brazil), mixed by Arthur Rizk (Code Orange, Powertrip) and mastered by the famed Jens Bogren (Opeth, Dimmu Borgir, Sepultura). The cover artwork was created by Wes Benscoter, who is internationally famous for his stunning covers for bands such as Slayer, Kreator, Black Sabbath and many more.
