Crypta Reveal New Single “Lord of Ruins”, Announce Sophomore Album

Posted by Corinne Westbrook in News on May 31, 2023

The death metal prospects are coming out swinging on the introduction to ‘Shades of Sorrow’.

Brazilian death metal dealers Crypta have announced their sophomore effort, Shades of Sorrow, out on August 4th via Napalm Records. To commemorate the announcement, the band has revealed the first taste of the album, “Lord of Ruins”. Melodic and violent, the track is a microcosm of the album as a whole.

“‘Lord of Ruins’ was our pick for a first single ’cause it combines both melodic and aggressive melodies that are present throughout the whole album,” said Crypta drummer Luana Dametto. “So we thought it’s a good representation of what to expect of the whole piece. It’s also the final song of the record and it has a very impactful meaning. It’s the closure of the whole album concept and it also fits perfectly with the artwork concept we had in mind.”

“Shades of Sorrow is a semi-concept album which describes a journey through the depths of our psyche when facing tough battles,” added vocalist and bassist Fernanda Lira. “It’s a trip to the many shades of pain we sometimes have to face while enduring our lives’ challenges. The songs are the perfect gloomy, dark, emotional soundtrack for this journey.”

Shades of Sorrow is due out August 4th via Napalm Records. Pre-orders are available HERE.
