Canadian technical death metal band Cryptopsy announced this week that former guitarist Jon Levasseur has returned to the band.
“Jon Levasseur, former lead guitarist and major creative contributing force behind None So Vile, Whisper Supremacy, And Then You’ll Beg… has returned to the band,” says Cryptopsy in a statement.
“The combination of Jon and Chris Donaldson has revived the power and energy of the infamous Cryptopsy string section, without losing the backup vocals and creative talent of Youri Raymond whom is now playing the six string bass. Eric Langlois has, for now, decided to step back and take a break from the Cryptopsy family. The reborn and fully motivated chemistry of Matt, Chris, Youri, Jon and Flo is determined to make an impact in 2011 and beyond.”
They’re determined, folks. Especially after that last record, which some people called “the 9/11 of metal.”
Cryptopsy continues to work on their next release, and says “New material is in the works (with the actual lineup) and will be available to all with your support in late-2011. Three new songs have been completed and will soon be featured on a final Century Media release. This meaning, the future is ours and yours and promises to be true Cryptopsy.”
