Kryptos have released new single “Hot Wired”

India’s heavy metal force Kryptos have released new single ‘Hot Wired’, taken from upcoming album “Force Of Danger”, out 1st October on AFM Records.

Two years since their latest, vicious “Afterburner” album, India’s heavy metal force Kryptos returns to invoke the ultimate sound of denim and leather with the release of their sixth studio album! “Force Of Danger” will be out on October 1st, 2021 via metal powerhouse AFM Records.

The band, who formed in 1998 in Bangalore, have long been considered as one of the spearheads of the Indian heavy metal revolution. With five critically acclaimed albums under their belt, they have supported some of metal’s biggest names like Iron Maiden, Testament, Kreator, Exodus, Death Angel and many more, earning themselves a reputation as a fiery and exciting live act.

After previously releasing singles the crushing album title track and just recently “Raging Steel”, the band shared another blistering appetizer for their upcoming album!

Nolan Lewis comments:

“It’s time to burn rubber! City lights and neon nights is the name of the game, so get into cruise control and blaze through the streets with “Hot Wired” – the third single off Force of Danger.”

“Check out the scorching new Kryptos video for “Hot Wired” that brings back killer memories from when we were ripping it up on the road in Europe and burning through the countryside spreading righteous heavy metal in our wake. Nothing beats touring and partying with all you amazing headbangers, so this goes out to metalheads everywhere – keep the fire burning!”

Kryptos burst into the heavy metal scene with their debut album “Spiral Ascent” in 2004. They were the first Indian heavy metal band ever touring Europe, followed by a worldwide signing with AFM Records, countless shows on tour with high class metal acts, two appearances at Wacken Open Air and many more prestigious festival stages. 2019 seen Kryptos not only headlining a European tour, but also the release of their fifth and most successful album to date, the vicious and dynamic “Afterburner”, which proudly followed in the best traditions of Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Accept and Thin Lizzy.

This Fall, Kryptos are set to put the pedal to the absolute metal as they once again strike back with their blistering brand of 80‘s inspired heavy metal! “Force of Danger” will be out on October 1, 2021 with a heavy touring schedule to follow soon.
