Cryptodira Premieres New Song "Medusa Misgendered" From Upcoming New Album "The Devil’s Despair"

Progressive metal band Cryptodira premieres a new song entitled "Medusa Misgendered", taken from the upcoming new album "The Devil’s Despair", which will be out in stores November 17th via Good Fight Music.

Check out now "Medusa Misgendered" below.

Says the band’s drummer Matthew Taibi of the new release:

"Much of ‘The Devil’s Despair‘ deals with the themes of dehumanizing social forces; forces which come from human activity and yet become confused for rigid, natural laws. In ‘Medusa Misgendered,’ the trend being criticized specifically is the objectification of femininity under the gaze of masculinity, reversing the myth of Medusa as the title suggests. Even for the side that benefits from reification, there is still an unnecessary loss of substance and they themselves become a reflection of the very world they’ve frozen. This hits on the larger theme captured by the artwork, where the Devil himself becomes a victim of the demonic force of dehumanization which originally emanated from him."
