CRYPTIC are another eccentric blackened death metal band from Indiana. "ONCE HOLY REALM" is oozing with epic riffs creating atmospheric guitar driven blackened death metal with a bit of old-school death metal thrown in for a few extra broken bones. This album seeps an esoteric mood that creates visions of ancient battles, forgotten empires and freezing cosmic journeys through the infinite void. Another excellent album lost in the waves of metal releases...
