Metal Review: Krypts – Unending Degradation (2013)

Krypts - Unending Degradation (2013)Helsinki, Finland’s death metal beasts Krypts are set to unleash their debut full-length release, “Unending Degradation,” on February 19, 2013 via Dark Descent Records. Since their inception in 2009, into their 2011 EP, they have proven that they are ready to be a mainstay in the death metal genre for the foreseeable future.

Unending Degradation” is basically a plethora of bone-crunching riffs and one of the deepest, most frightening displays of guttural vocals this side if Glen Benton. While it took me a few listens to fully appreciate the album, I am having a hard time putting this one down. The riffs are what set it apart from other death metal bands out there. From the almost thrash-style riffs in songs like Open the Crypt and Dormancy of the Ancients, it is clear that the riffs are what will lead Krypts to the promised land.

With never a dull moment, “Unending Degradation’s” mind-numbing riffs and melodies will run you over like a tank without even say sorry, but you will accept it and ask for more. Add this to your collection as soon as you can.
