Crypta unleashes new single “The Other Side Of Anger”

Author Hernan Osuna - 3.8.2023

Brazilian death metal outfit Crypta will release their second LP “Shades of Sorrow” this Friday, August 4 via Napalm Records. The group has now revealed their new single “The Other Side Of Anger” and you can watch the official video below.

After smashing in with the relentless “Lord of Ruins” and then “Trial of Traitors“, the third single from the album showcases Crypta as a force to be reckoned with. Outstanding death metal drumming on “The Other Side of Anger” sets the scene for threatening vocals, evoking an uncontrollable storm.

With millions of video views and performances at the famous Wacken Open Air, among other premium festivals, the band will add another highlight when supporting Ghost at two shows later this year.

Fernanda Lira comments on “The Other Side of Anger”: “With the third single we wanted to show one more side of the album! ‘Lord of Ruins’ brought the melodies that permeate the whole record, ‘Trial of Traitors’ has the aggressiveness and a fast pace and with ‘The Other Side of Anger’, we wanted to show the more gloomy, slow paced side of the record!

Formed in 2019 by former Nervosa members Luana Dametto (drums) and Fernanda Lira (vocals), and now featuring guitarists Tainá Bergamaschi and Jessica di Falchi, Crypta broke the charts with their highly praised debut album, “Echoes of the Soul”, in 2021.

The album received massive critical and fanbase acclaim for a debut release – including landing at #55 on the Official German Album Charts and debuting at #15 on both the US Hard Music Albums and Top New Artist Albums charts. On “Shades of Sorrow”, the band stays true to their unique sound that was introduced on their first full-length, blending classic and modern death metal with significant extreme and black metal elements.

It is clear that the talented women of Crypta have created another impressive masterpiece with Shades of Sorrow, presenting the very best of their technical ability and songwriting skills on this 13-track onslaught. Shades of Sorrow was recorded at Family Mob Studio, mixed by Daniel Bergstrand at 33 Stockholm, Sweden and mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios.
