Cryptivore are a solo project from Australia that plays a mixture of death metal and grindcore with a touch of crust and this is a review of his 2017 demo "Unseen Divinity" which will be released on cassette in February by Blood Harvest.
A very heavy sound starts off the demo along with some death metal growls and screams a few seconds later while the faster sections of the songs bring in a great amount of blast beats and grindcore elements along with the solos and leads bringing in a melodic and old school Swedish style.
Elements of d beat and crust can also be heard in the songs along with the music being very heavily rooted in the 90's while the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody as well as most of the tracks being very short in length and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Cryptivore plays a musical style that takes old school death metal and grindcore and mixes them together with a touch of d beat and crust to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover violence, anti religion and gore themes.
In my opinion Cryptivore are a very great sounding old school mixture of death metal and grindcore with a touch of crust and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Raining Human Debris" and "Involuntary Septic Adultery". 8 out of 10.
