Released:
Label: Dark Descent
This Finnish death metal band is dedicated to keeping the fires of the '90s scene aflame. Cryptborn's first full-length, In The Grasp Of The Starving Dead occasionally veers into doom territory, but for the most part sticks to the left-handed path of thrumming guitars and a bludgeoning double-bass drum attack. An eternally damned soul grunts underneath the caterwaul. Basically, the salad days of death metal are effectively resurrected, even down to the grave-robbing, cadaver-obsessed lyrical imagery. Good times. "Rotten Gates of Heaven" and the title cut are highlights.
