Cryptic

Cryptic participated in San Diego Wacken Metal Battle with an more than outstanding brutal performance that any lover of metal would be more than pleased to have experienced.

K Prouty – Instrumental Metal

K.

They just hear noise. As those who love this genre and it's sub-genres, we know that this "noise" is rich with multi layers of musical talent and influences. Nevertheless, such as the case with any and all forms of art - [...]
