Canadian extreme metal legends CRYPTOPSY are something of an enigma. Having gotten their start way back in ’92, only a few short years after the birth of death metal, the band, nearly thirty years later, continue to out-brutalize bands half their age. That is some serious intestinal fortitude.
If you had any doubt, well, let’s put that to rest right now with the visually-stunning video for the brand new single, ‘Sire Of Sin’. The song is culled from the forthcoming EP, THE BOOK OF SUFFERING – TOME II. Regarding the video’s ocular-fucking objective, the guys lend context to their intent:
“We knew that the video had to be as chaotic as the song. To accomplish this we strived to remove all full band performance shots and replace them with extreme close-ups on individual members. In order to match the frantic pace of the music we challenged Chris Kells (director/editor/producer) to make a myriad of seamless edits between multiple angled and minimally lit shots. We must say that we are blown away with what he accomplished.”
