Cryptopsy Crowdfunding Series Of EPs

Band looking for 20 Gs to track first effort…and for stage banners!

CryptopsyCryptopsyIt has been three years since the release of Cryptopsy’s self-titled album, which wasn’t half bad.

Now, the band has turned to the fans that remain after the release of The Unspoken King to see if they’ll fund a series of EPs that’ll be titled The Book of Suffering.

“This approach will allow the band to put out new music more often while remaining true to their standards of quality,” says a press release.
Cryptopsy decided to go independent in 2012. The crowdfunding campaign will allow them to give their fans more in terms of videos and enhanced live show production.

The campaign kicked off today.

Cryptopsy’s $20,000 goal will fund the recording, mixing and mastering of The Book of Suffering Tome 1, as well as produce artwork, a music video and stage banners.

Additional rewards such as a play-through video, a tour documentary and more music will be unlocked for all backers if they surpass their goal.
Cryptopsy have stated:

“We hope that every extreme metal fan will be exposed to ‘The Book of Suffering Tome 1.’ We are extremely proud of the material; it is some of the most brutal, technical and fresh music we have ever created.”

In the meantime, my humble campaign failed. As you well know. It’s over. I’m done come May 11. 

Cryptopsy will soon embark on a tour with Disgorge, Erimha, Soreption and The Convalescence.
