Lead guitarist and songwriter Jon Levasseur has rejoined Canadian extreme metallers Cryptopsy. Youri Raymond (Secret Chiefs 3), who had been playing guitar, is now handling bass duties following Levassour's return and bassist Eric Langois' recent departure from the band. The band is also working on new material.

The group released the following statement: "We have some important informative news we would like to announce. Jon Levasseur, former lead guitarist and major creative contributing force behind None So Vile, Whisper Supremacy, And Then You'll Beg... has returned to the band. The combination of Jon and Chris Donaldson has revived the power and energy of the infamous Cryptopsy string section, without losing the backup vocals and creative talent of Youri Raymond whom is now playing the six string bass. Eric Langlois has, for now, decided to step back and take a break from the Cryptopsy family.

The reborn and fully motivated chemistry of Matt, Chris, Youri, Jon and Flo is determined to make an impact in 2011 and beyond. New material is in the works (with the actual line-up) and will be available to all with your support in late 2011. Meanwhile, three new songs have been completed and will soon be featured on a final Century Media release. This meaning, the future is ours and yours and promises to be true Cryptopsy."

Maybe the old cryptopsy is back

Shame that Eric left at the same time, having Flo/Jon/Eric all together could have been very interesting. Still, hopefully this will be a step in the right direction. Wonder what inspired Jon to return...

Well anything they release will probably be interesting from here...

If we want the old Cryptopsy sound back, its not enough to bring their former guitarist, they have to fire the shitty vocalist too

this.

the vocalist is an atrocity, if cryptopsy are to release any sort of quality material, he has got to go

The vocalist doesn't write the music. No matter who is behind the mic, The Unspoken King would've had the same crappy material

Stoked that Jon is back! And working with Youri should yield great results

Agreed. He ruined the bands name with that last album. Have they said anything about him in the band?

This could be a step in the right direction. Maybe the vocalist will see the light as well. I'm at least interested in new material from here.
