Kryptamok are a band from Finland that plays a very raw and traditional form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 demo "Profaani" which will be released in November as a joint effort between Blood Harvest Productions and Helter Skelter Records.
A very fast and raw sound starts off the ep along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the music is very heavily rooted in the Finnish tradition along with the vocals being mostly high pitched black metal screams as well as some demonic growls also being used at times.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with a brief use of melodic chants as well as a some atmospheric keyboards being used at times as well as the riffs and guitar leads also using a great amount of melody and one of the tracks is very long and epic in length.
Kryptamok plays a style of black metal that is very raw, traditional and heavily rooted in the Finnish ways of the genre while also having its atmospheric moments, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Finnish and cover dark themes.
In my opinion Krypamok are a very great sounding raw and atmospheric black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Wala" and "Kuolemen Katarsis". 8 out of 10.
