Crypta Releases Part 1 Of Behind The Scenes Video

Brazilian/Dutch death metal band Crypta, featuring former members of Nervosa and Burning Witches, has posted the first part of a video documenting a behind the scenes look at their first music video, "From The Ashes."

Crypta Reveals Debut Album Details

Just recently signed with Napalm Records, Crypta offers a raging sonic monster in a class of its own: the newly staffed Brazilian/Dutch death metal unit is set to drop jaws with their long-awaited debut offering, "Echoes Of The Soul," to be released on June 11, 2021 via Napalm Records.

Formed in June 2019, the four-piece line up consists of vocalist and bassist Fernanda Lira and Luana Dametto on drums (both former members thrash metal frontrunners Nervosa), plus supremely talented guitarists Sonia Anubis (Cobra Spell, Ex-Burning Witches) and Tainá Bergamaschi (Ex-Hagbard). They enforce a heightened level of potency and experience from their successful past and current projects, enhancing influences from both classic and modern death metal genres, plus significant extreme and black metal elements, to create a sound of their own.
Positioned right at the burning gates of death metal salvation, their first single and music video, "From The Ashes," already showcases the demonic, captivating power of the hard-hitting combo.

Singer and bassist Fernanda Lira says about the first single:
"The song is basically about the well-known tale of the phoenix, but in a more philosophical sense. It talks about the ever-changing cycles of life, about the many endings and beginnings we have to go through, about how many old versions of ourselves need to figuratively die in order for us to keep growing and evolving as human beings, and finally, about building resilience to endure all these rebirths."

The first audiovisual work immediately takes the viewer into the funeral spectra of Crypta’s universe and also reveals full commitment on a cinematographic level. The track itself is an infernal omen of the album's sinister stories and already presents a first spark of their impressive interplay: Lira’s forceful vocals, Anubis and Bergamaschi’s bold axe attacks and Dametto’s prominent sophisticated drumming summon the phoenix to rise from the ashes - with the last crackle of this debut full-length conjuring screams for more.

Burning Witches Parts Ways With Guitarist

Swiss heavy metal outfit Burning Witches has announced that, following the formation of her new band Crypta with former Nervosa members Fernanda Lira and Luana Dametto, guitarist Sonia Anubis has parted company with the band. A statement from the group reads as follows:

"Many saw it coming: Sonia has left the Burning Witches!

"Yes, indeed to keep a girl band together is more difficult than we thought. Nobody wanted to sign us as a band, with the argument that woman-bands do not last. Well it seems THAT Curse is real! But we will NOT give up!

"Sonia has left us for her new project. We saw this coming and we have to accept it. People change and people move on. We wish her all the best!

"For us as a Band this means we have to work harder. We will continue our path and will of course look for a new Witch!

"But first of all, this Friday, we will have a LIVE JAM with some amazing girls and friends. More news on Wednesday! Please stay tuned!

"We will take our time to search and announce the new lead player, please understand we are as shocked as you are. We will use the Corona-times useful, to choose the right person for our lead guitarist position.

"The backbone of the band will remain strong, in friendship and musically. We are already working on new songs and are top motivated to return on stage.

"We want to thank all the fans for the amazing support and will keep you posted about our future moves! Stay positive! It sounds like a cliché but it was never more meaningful than now: WE ARE READY TO FIGHT!!!" More...
