SIGNED: Doodswens

CRYPTOSIS – Release Single & Video To Transcendence

Dutch futuristic multi-metal eruption CRYPTOSIS proudly present you the official video to ‘Transcendence’. The video – produced by Aimed & Framed – can be viewed here.

CRYPTOSIS comments: “In 2149 it is possible to purchase digital thoughts, knowledge and talents from a deceased person. The term “self investment” has shifted to a whole different kind of perspective. People can now enhance their mind to be more creative and smarter beyond their wildest dreams. This all comes at a price, since the new technology is so addictive that society can’t live without it anymore. Mankind has become the host… of a parasite.”
The band’s debut album “Bionic Swarm” hits the stores on March 26th. The album – to be released by Century Media Records – will be available in the following formats and can be pre – ordered here!

  • Ltd. CD Digipak – all outlets

Vektor unleash new song & announce split EP

US progressive thrash titans Vektor are teaming up with Dutch rising stars Cryptosis (Century Media Records) for a limited split EP release entitled ‘Transmissions of Chaos”, to be released on February 25th 2021 through District 19.

In support of this release, the band is revealing the first new track since 2016’s highly acclaimed ‘Terminal Redux’ album. Listen to ‘Activate’ below!

Split-EP Tracklist:
1. Vektor – Activate
2. Vektor – Dead by Dawn
3. Cryptosis – Decypher 
4. Cryptosis – Prospect of Immortality

Vektor’s David DiSanto comments: “We are proud to release “Activate”, which is the first of our two songs on our upcoming Split EP with our buddies in Cryptosis! This song features our new drummer Mike Ohlson, our new bass player Stephen Coon, and my old friend Erik Nelson. This song is about the reactivation of Vektor. We hope it spreads a little positivity in these trying times. After touring with Cryptosis (then named Distillator) in 2015, we are extremely excited to be working with them again. Keep an eye out as updates become available for our upcoming Split EP, “Transmissions of Chaos”.
