Kryptos was formed in 1998 in Bangalore, India and have long been considered as one of the spearheads of the Indian heavy metal revolution. With five critically acclaimed albums under their belt, they have supported some of metal’s biggest names like Iron Maiden, Testament, Kreator, Exodus, Death Angel and many more, earning themselves a reputation as a fiery and exciting live act.
Two years since their latest, vicious Afterburner- album, Kryptos returns to invoke the ultimate sound of denim and leather with the release of their sixth studio album! Force Of Danger will be out on October 1, 2021 via metal powerhouse AFM Records.
After Kryptos just recently shared a first single and music video of the crushing album title track (listen HERE!), today the band unleashed a second song from their upcoming album, titled Raging Steel. But beware! If you love speed metal classics like Freewheel Burning and Fast as a Shark, then this track will blitz through your speakers like a freight train! This is razor-sharp heavy metal, armed to the teeth with some of Kryptos‘ most savage riffs and solos yet. Says Nolan Lewis, guitarist & frontman of Kryptos: “It’s time to put the pedal to the metal and blast through the cosmos with “Raging Steel” – the second blistering single from our upcoming album ‘Force of Danger’. Watch out headbangers! Whip out your spikes and leather and crank this sucker up!”
Kryptos burst into the heavy metal scene with their debut album ‘Spiral Ascent’ in 2004. They were the first Indian heavy metal band ever touring Europe, followed by a worldwide signing with AFM Records, countless shows on tour with high class metal acts, two appearances at Wacken Open Air and many more prestigious festival stages. 2019 seen Kryptos not only headlining a European tour, but also the release of their fifth and most successful album to date, the vicious and dynamic ‘Afterburner‘, which proudly followed in the best traditions of Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Accept and Thin Lizzy.
This Fall, Kryptos are set to put the pedal to the absolute metal as they once again strike back with their blistering brand of ‘80s inspired heavy metal! Force of Danger will be out on October 1, 2021 with a heavy touring schedule to follow soon. The pre- sale of Kryptos thunderous new album, one that belongs into every well- sorted heavy metal record collection, is available
