The original post

Posted by LethargyMan on 23.06.2006 at 05:18
I'm suprised this hasn't been made yet...

Founded in 1988, Cryptopsy grew to become one of today's biggest leaders in today's technical death metal scene. Their singer, Lord Worm, is certainly one of the most notable aspects of the band, whose voice sounds almost strained, yet still powerful. Cryptopsy's music is very fast and aggressive, made stronger by their liberal use of time-changes and the intense drumming of Flo Mounier, who gives all of their songs a very prevalent percussive feel. This lineup released two albums, Blasphemy Made Flesh and their groundbreaking album None so Vile.

After 1996, Lord Worm left the band for his own ambitions as a teacher, and was replaced by Mike DiSalvo. His vocal style was very different from that of his predecessor, taking on a more -core style. His first album as singer was Whisper Supremacy. While many people were turned off by this dramatic change, DiSalvo was indeed a very aggressive vocalist. After the release of the band's fourth album, And then You'll Beg... DiSalvo quit in 2001 to pursue a family life.

After a brief stint with Martain Lacroix as vocals (who can be heard on the album None so Live), Lord Worm finally returned as lead singer on Cryptopsy's latest album, Once was Not. The band is now touring Europe to promote the album.

The first Cryptopsy album I heard was And then You'll Beg, and I loved it, so I suppose I like DiSalvo a bit more than some other Cryptopsy fans... of course, I now prefer Lord Worm.

Any other fans?

I couldn't agree more, and the way Flo is making fun of the old Cryptopsy fans just pisses me off, he says we are close minded what an asshole.


Right , with the amount of bullshit he's belted out against his core fan following has made me lose all the respect I had for him

Considering the backlash against the last album, they probably will.

The whole lineup hasn't completely changed, Flo has been in the band since it formed and their current bassist has been on since None So Vile. It's basically just the new vocalist and guitarist that's doing them in.

Well, the drumming and bass line in cryptopsy's new albums isn't bad.. but that can't fix the shit the new guitarist and vocalist have brought on.

Honestly, it's 90% Flo Mounier's doing. I really wouldn't blame the new guitarist that much. The new singer just sucks.

I would have to disagree, flo's still as epic as ever... maybe he changed his signature style a little bit but he's still one hell of a drummer, and definitely among the fastest. its the new vocalist that is litterally killing the band.. i cant bear to listen to a whole track from start to end without pausing and listening to somethign else in the middle so i'd 'clean-up' my ears from the shit that's staining it coz of the faggot deathcore vocalist .. and the new guitarist isn't THAT horrible i guess... but he's still not good AT ALL.. and incomparable to Levasseur

well, i don't know about that.. if you're sure then i guess i believe u.. but eitherways Lord Worn is pretty much irreplaceable ... so maybe he was stuck with this faggot kid he's got for a vocalist now

I don't have time to really search this too deeply right now, but it appears this is a good hint of the direction the band was planning to go in. I think Alex Auburn quit because of the new direction, so I doubt he was responsible. Flo Mounier has been the most vocal about making fun of the new sounds detractors so I assume it's him that is more or less the leader of the band. I guess it's all just speculation.

New Cryptopsy Sounds pretty retarded imo. They're way to technical to play freakin metalcore.
Sounds way out of place and directionless. Some Riffs are pretty entertaining and the drumming still amazes me tought.
But I just dont get why they would have chosen that type of vocalist.
Looks like they want to get back all the fans Despised Icon stole from Cryptopsy.
Anyway I don't think Lord Worm was such a phenomenal vocalist either. (just picture him in Opeth)
But he fitted Cryptopsy Perfectly. Wrote above average lyrics imo and he gave one hell of a show Live.


Personally prefer None So Vile and Blasphemy Made Flesh over all of they're releases.
And Then You'll Beg seemed so messed up and took time to grow on me.
Never listened to Whisper Supremacy (let me know if your opinions on it if ya dont mind metaldudes)
Once Was Not showed a pretty fresh and new face to Cryptopsy.
And The Unspoken King made one of the best cupholders ever. seriously.

In case anyone hasn't heard yet, Jon Levasseur is back in the band. Their last album had some seriously weak riffage, so this is really good news.
