Best viewed without Internet Explorer, in x resolution or higher. The drumming on this album is Snuka - Various - Miniature - Edition Vol. 1 of its most powerful instrumentation, with a great deal of variety characterizing the percussion on this album. The slow, pounding beat that opens this release is a commanding, primordial smolder, while other points of the album showcase a strong grasp of faster beats and seething double-kicks.
Far superior to their debut, the cohesion of all instruments and the cavernous vocal performance make for a monstrous piece whose unholy aura is worth returning to. Krypts revealed itself to me by chance as I was browsing the internet one evening. I don't remember what I was seeking at the time but I do recall the feeling of hearing Unending Degradation for the first time and being awed by the immensity of its sound-scape. Immediately after enveloping myself in the misshaped yet marvelous crypt of Krypts.
Unending Time is Running Out - Muse - Absolution Tour (DVD) I sought out more from the band, and to my elated surprise, Remnants of Expansion was made available via Bandcamp The Withering Titan - Krypts - Remnants Of Expansion delve into.
What Krypts did with Remnants of Expansion was take the doom elements of Unending Degradation and expand on it pun intended. Imagine a world in which possibility is boundless and is overlooked by a looming body of ancient matter organizing and dismantling life forms when required. Remnants of Expansion takes the listener from earth to a realm beyond the cosmos, somewhere shattered by the hands of time but still manages to exist independently whilst repairing itself, whilst expanding its reach in an attempt to swallow everything it makes contact with during the process of extension and proliferation.
Krypts has a very ominous sound to their music and on Remnants of Expansion we see the band place more depth into an already abysmal form of composition. Some of the ornaments almost fell from the cabinet and walls as I was listening to the song. Why not just lower the volume one? The title track is such a killer interlude that It The Withering Titan - Krypts - Remnants Of Expansion have been full song instead, such a killer track how the distorted guitars lead into that creepy melodic section; man Krypts are fucking amazing, they know how to get the atmosphere right.
Its an excellent closure to the crepuscular custom witnessed. Here Krypts picks up the speed in a headbanging fury. The album is only 31 minutes in length nut possessed enough give satisfaction to any listener.
After hearing the release I felt as though they would be more effective if it was brought forward. That album was more groovy and only hinted at doom metal when presented. Unexpectedly Krypts decided to go in that desired direction with Remnants of Expansion which in turn resulted in a more vigorous and comprehensive release than the previous, which was not bad by any means, it just showcased the bands potential to a point of needed implementation.
I hope a new record is in the works or even completed at the time of writing this review. They have their feet firmly planted on the soil Sailing On The Tide - Carpenters - Voice Of The Heart the genre; their next crushing step is highly anticipated to the point of growing impatience.
