Extreme metal titans, CRYPTOPSY, have been forced to cancel their recently announced tour of South America in March, after drummer Flo Mounier broke his knee cap. Mounier had completed the drum tracking process for the group’s new album prior to the incident, so it did not affect the recording. The tour of South America is expected to be re-scheduled later in 2008.

Cryptopsy are currently putting the finishing touches on their sixth full-length, The Unspoken King, which will surface through Century Media this summer. The group recently announced the addition of new frontman Matt McGachy (3 MILE SCREAM) and keyboards/samplist Maggie Durand to their lineup.

Alex Auburn (guitars) states: “Right now the band is plunged deeply into the production of the new album and so far everything is going well. Fans will be amazed by the diversity and open minded vision of extremes for this particular entity. Some song titles we’ve been working on are ‘Worship Your Demons', ‘Resurgence Of An Empire’ and ‘Silence The Tyrants'. More news to follow soon.”

Cryptopsy will be featured on this year’s installment of the Summer Slaughter tour throughout North America this summer, which will be preceded by a tour of Mexico and Europe (with DECREPIT BIRTH and UNMERCIFUL).
