Cryptborn are a band from Finland that plays death metal in the classic European tradition and this is a review of their 2011 album "Into The Grasp Of Suffering" which was released by Dark Descent Records.
Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with a great amount of blast beats being thrown in at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast European style death metal riffs that are very dark and brutal sounding, while the lead guitars when they are utilized are very dark sounding death metal guitar leads.
Vocals are all deep death metal growls, while the lyrics touch on dark and gory themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and heavy feel to it without trying to sound like a more modern and mainstream death metal band.
In my opinion Cryptborn are a very good old school sounding dark death metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Gift Of Rotten Flesh" "Rotten Gates Of Heaven" and "Attonement Of Hell". RECEMMONDED BUY
