Crypt Of Kerberos - To Release New Material

Official press release

Crypt of Kerberos was formed in Sweden in 1990 and featured members from bands such as Macrodex, House of Usher, Tyrant, The Black, Embryo, Blood Mortized, Sophia and Arcana. The band released a number of recordings during the early 90's. Crypt of Kerberos last official release was the 1993 album "World of Myths". This album was a milestone in terms of technical and melodic death metal and it was universally praised by the critics. Since the 2005 release "The Macrodex of War" (Bleed Records, Australia) which featured previously released promotion recordings and two 7" EP's there has been rumors about the band possibly recording new material.

Sixteen years after the last recording, the time has finally come: Swedish cult death metal group Crypt of Kerberos announce upcoming 7" EP!

On Friday the 13th 12:00 Central European Time, Crypt of Kerberos will unleash brand new material upon the world. One of the tracks for their upcoming 7" EP will premiere on their MySpace page.

Two new songs have been written by guitarist Peter Bjärgö with lyrics by Bjärgö and drummer Mattias Borgh. The new material which was recorded and produced at Bjärgö's Erebus Odora Studio, can be described as a return to the groups early sound. "Think of it as a continuation of the 1992 EP. These two new tracks really reek of down tuned guitars and slow crushing riffs combined with lyrics that deal with the world coming undone. The focus has been on dirty old style death metal more than on flashy technique" says Bjärgö.

Crypt of Kerberos anno 2009:

Christian Eriksson: Vocals
Peter Bjärgö: Guitar
Jonas Strandell: Guitar
Stefan Källarsson: Bass
Mattias Borgh: Drums

Hmm, this seems like it's a big deal, since they're releasing new material after such a long time.
