When current bands play in a style that is over 20 years old, the question of whether the music is merely an acceptable throwback is inevitable. Asphyx and Unleashed have bludgeoned with mid-paced power chords for decades, and Incantation already perfected dark, murky tones and chromatic melodicism. Krypts, however, transcend categorization as copycats. Although they use the aesthetics of death metal of the late ’80s and early ’90s, this form is merely a framework for their artistic statement.

The melodies on this demo (download here) pull at a fundamental part of human nature. When I listen to it, I feel a deep sense of beauty and ambition. Krypts portray a world outside of modern comforts and stresses. Each doom passage makes me feel unbearably small; each rumbling stomp makes all of existence swirl around me.

One of the most admirable traits of this demo is the deliberateness of its song construction. The structures are minimal, containing only three or four riffs. However, each riff has room to ripen through variations in lead guitar and percussion. A theme will serve as a melodic playground for thick octaves, then become a forceful rumble as throaty vocals settle into the rhythmic pocket. Riffs intertwine and grow together, forming a cohesive whole. This is not just a tribute to the past – this is a living, creative vision.
