Brazilian/Dutch death metal alliance CRYPTA have finished work on debut album Echoes Of The Soul which is due to be released June 11th, 2021 via Napalm Records.
Formed in June 2019, the four-piece line up consists of Fernanda Lira and Luana Dametto, both former members of Brazilian thrash metal force NERVOSA, plus the talented Sonia Anubis (COBRA SPELL, Ex-BURNING WITCHES) and Tainá Bergamaschi (Ex-HAGBARD).
Now they released a music video for their first single “From The Ashes“, which already showcases the demonic, captivating power of the hard-hitting combo. You can check out the new video below.
Singer and bassist Fernanda Lira shares statement about first single:
“The song is basically about the well-known tale of the phoenix, but in a more philosophical sense. It talks about the ever-changing cycles of life, about the many endings and beginnings we have to go through, about how many old versions of ourselves need to figuratively die in order for us to keep growing and evolving as human beings, and finally, about building resilience to endure all these rebirths.”
André Gustavo, movie director at O2 Filmes, states:
“I believe the song perfectly matches the current moment we’re living, during which all humanity needs to reinvent itself and be reborn ‘From The Ashes’. The videoclip preparation itself can also be translated through it: building up such a big production during this terrible moment we’re living was a big challenge to all of us. I believe, for all of that, from the creative and cinematographic perspective, we had a great final outcome for the video”.
Echoes of the Soul was recorded in January 2021 at the Family Mob Studio (Brazil), mixed by Arthur Rizk (Code Orange, Powertrip etc.) and mastered by the famed Jens Bogren (Opeth, Dimmu Borgir, Sepultura etc.). The cover artwork was created by Wes Benscoter.
