Battle Helm Rating

CRYPTAE are a Dutch death metal band. I know nothing whatsoever about them other than they are sonic terrorists, at least judging by this EP. To people on the outside death metal can be perceived as pure noise but to us in the know it is pure pleasure. But then along comes something like this EP and even I start to question my sanity. This makes Carcass’ debut “Reek Of Putrefaction” seem dynamic and multifaceted in comparison. This is noise. And no, I don’t mean that as a bad thing. It is just that this is noise. Among all the chaos you can actually decipher what could be songs. This won’t win any prices as most easily deciphered album of the year. But there is still something fascinating about it.
