Some bands just form and hit the ground running and that is a massive achievement; to hit the ground running in the face of the global pandemic of COVID-19 in 2020, that is a commendable achievement. One band who succeeded in completing this was Cryptum who hunkered down to write have now released their debut EP of death metal, the aptly titled ‘Vile Emergence’.

                Straight out of the traps with ‘Vile Emergence’, Cryptum waste no time in piss arsing about, this is four tracks clocking in at just under 16 minutes which perfectly showcase what Cryptum are all about. What the listener gets here is a smash and grab of death metal as the Illinois band carefully bridge the gap between an old-school death metal sound and a newer one that is delivered with the care, passion and integrity needed to survive in the death metal ocean. Therefore, tracks such as ‘Dead Celestial Body’ and ‘Torrent of Infinite Time’ roar with all the bestial vigour of Immolation, Pestilence and Suffocation, but the main love of this band right here is Morbid Angel with Cryptum not afraid to worship heavily at this altar and wear their influences proudly on their sleeves.

                Although this EP doesn’t break any new ground, it perfectly shows Cryptum finding their feet and identity in the death metal world; ‘Vile Emergence’ has been placed down as a very good foundation stone that will hopefully lead to a full-length studio album very soon.
