Detailed Description
Three years may have passed since 'Unending Degradation' but KRYPTS have lost none of their excruciating power thatmade their debut album such a special one, erecting a bridgein between their homeland glorious and downtuned early90's glory and something even more sinister and doom-ladden. And the arrival in 2015 of Jukka Aho fromGOREPHILIA on second guitar has done nothing to alter thatrare chemistry, on the contrary...Just like its predecessor, 'Remnants of Expansion' reeks ofthat ancient feeling but dives even deeper into the abyss.Clocking altogether at 33 minutes, there's something verymajestic and solemn about its five songs. Like a serpentcircling its prey, the Finns like to play shadow and it's nevertruer 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, twominutes later the listener is buried under a barrage to burythe listener under a deluge of blastbeats, only to let theinstrumental title-track drown you in the cold andbottomless waters of funeral doom.Once again adorned with Timo Ketola cryptic artwork,'Remnants of Expansion' is like a big haunted house at a topof a dead trees infested hill on the outskirts of town by amoonless night. Grand in scope, seemingly devoid of anyhuman touch and yet towering over us like a malevolententity. Behold. - written by Olivier "Zoltar" Badin
