Deranged dutch experimentalists Cryptae return with another enigmatic mess of malformed and deviant experimental raw death metal, unfolding a single staggering eighteen-plus-minute track of complete aural delirium. Within the mammoth headfuck of a song the duo cover an enormous amount of ground, letting loose on literally all of their most demented musical delusions and tapping into a monstrous pool of influences to unleash an aural pandemonium of absolutely unseen lunacy. Extremely cerebral and sophisticated, yet raw, repulsive, visceral and mercilessly unforgiving, on "Vestigial" Cryptae blur the lines between improvisation and deliberate erraticism and draw influence from a surreal array of seemingly antithetic influences ranging from Morbid Angel, to Magma, John Coltrane, Macabre and beyond, to construct an hallucinatory sonic maze of utmost brutality, where shapeshifting tempos, vertigo-inducing repetitions, and demented song structures are meticulously designed to disorient the listener and annihilate their last shred of sanity.
