Brazilian death metal band Crypta have revealed another furious new single, entitled “Trial of Traitors”! After smashing in with the relentless “Lord of Ruins”, the first single to debut from the outfit’s sophomore album, Shades of Sorrow (out August 4th, 2023 via Napalm Records), “Trial of Traitors” serves as the second harbinger off of the new record, breaking in with merciless, impressive guitar work and inciting an uncontrollable storm of pure rage that screams for more! Furthermore, its creative and devilishly brutal official music video supports the track perfectly.
In 2021, Crypta stormed to the top with their acclaimed debut full-length, Echoes of the Soul, landing at #55 on the Official German Album Charts and debuting at #15 on both the US Hard Music Albums and Top New Artist Albums Charts. Now, both fans and critics alike eagerly anticipate the release of the band’s new offering, teased by the bone-shaking “Trial of Traitors” today.
Crypta on “Trial of Traitors”:
“We decided to have ‘Trial of Traitors’ as one of the singles because, although it’s the fastest, most aggressive song on album, it still has a lot of our already characteristic melodic work here and there, so we thought this blend of these two extremes would be a good sneak-peak into what people can expect overall from the album!”
