CRYPTOPSY Announce New EP ‘The Book Of Suffering – TOME II’; Cover Art And Tracklisting Unveiled

They say DEATH comes in threes. As it relates to Canadian extreme metal legends CRYPTOPSY, brutal, vertigo-inducing DEATH METAL indeed comes in threes! To lend some validity to this urban legend, the guys are back with the second chapter of their promised trilogy, entitled The Book Of Suffering – Tome II.

Much like 2015’s critically-acclaimed The Book Of Suffering – Tome 1, Tome II, promises an inhuman musical journey that once again defies the universal laws of relativity, gravity, rhythm, vibration, polarity and chaos. In fact, almost unbelievably, The Book Of Suffering – Tome II amps up the chaos, delivering an even more ferocious and superior sounding experience, as the band goes on to explain:

“The Book of Suffering – Tome II is some of the most intense, gnarly, brutal-yet-organic material we have written to date.”

RELEASE DATE: Oct 26th 2018

Cover art by Remy C from Headsplit Designs.

Produced, mixed and mastered by CRYPTOPSY guitarist, Chris Donaldson, at The Grid studio in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

TRACKLISTING:
1. The Wretched Living
2. Sire Of Sin
3. Fear His Displeasure
4. The Laws Of The Flesh
As of September 7th, The Book Of Suffering – Tome II will be available for pre-order via CRYPTOPSY’s Bandcamp page as well as on iTunes. Upon pre-order, fans will receive early-access to the single ‘Sire Of Sin’.

Additionally, CRYPTOPSY will premiere the video for ‘Sire Of Sin’ on September 7th. The video was directed, filmed and edited by Chris Kells (THE AGONIST) from FTB Visuals.
