Quebec-based extremist CRYPTOPSY have again parted ways with singer Lord Worm (aka Dan Greening).

A message at the band's site reads: "Cryptopsy is currently looking to audition candidates to fill the positions of "Singer/Frontman" and "Keyboardist/Sampler".

"Singers must be able to sing in clean voice, on pitch, and also be able to scream/growl."

"If you are motivated and would like to try out please e-mail the band at crymusic@hotmail.com."

"If you have a criminal record please don’t bother contacting the band, this means you can’t tour."

"IMPORTANT... When e-mailing us YOU MUST tell us your age, the city you are from and your experience. Afterwords send CDs of you singing or playing the keyboard at this adress:

CRYPTOPSY
2000 Notre Dame Est, Suite 501
Montreal, Quebec
H2K 2N3
CANADA"

a) Clean vocals? Guess they're fully committing to this tech/jazz thing... which may be my favourite genre but this is Cryptopsy we're talking about....

b) Lord Worm was probably one of the best metal vocalist's out there - RIP the scream, I doubt he'll be back.

Lord Worm sounded like a dog with rabies. Mike Disalvo was easily their best vocalist. Besides, ITS DEATH METAL - LISTEN TO THE GUITARS

I agree, I would like to know why he left or was kicked out. Disalvo was not a very great vocalist but Lord Worm was outstanding...it going to be very big shoes to fill.

Lord Worm is capable of pulling off a scream at 28 seconds sustaining. At record, the longest he has done is 58 seconds at a Montreal show. What f***ing vocalist can match that? Not Desalvo and his hardcore asshumping vocals...His sick, twisted, too much vocals fit the band like a glove, and now the band wants clean vocals and a keyboardist...c'mon, this is technical, almost grindcore-y Death Metal, which only the Death Growl can suit. Listen to None So Vile or Blasphemy Made Flesh (true sadistik!) and tell me that singing can work with that. Those were the only albums of theirs I liked anyways...

Oh, and stop f***ing dissing Worm and praising Desalvo...his albums are like the Blaze Bayley years of Iron Maiden. Bring back the old, you idiots, and f*** the new....I swear if this band goes mallcore, I'm gone!
