Cryptopsy crowdfunding new EP

Fri, May 8, 2015 7:41 AM PT4,045 views

Official press release: Three years after their self-titled album, Cryptopsy will release a series of EPs entitled The Book of Suffering. This approach will allow the band to put out new music more often while remaining true to their standards of quality. After being on a record label for their entire career, Cryptopsy decided to go independent in 2012. Supported by their fans, Cryptopsy distributed and sold thousands of albums across the globe and had the opportunity to tour Japan, Western and Eastern Europe, the UK, South America, Scandinavia and Canada. They are now embarking on a crowdfunding campaign that will allow them to give their fans more in terms of videos and enhanced live show production. As of May 8 2015, Cryptopsy's crowdfunding campaign is open with exclusive t-shirts, girly tank tops, hoodies, CDs and vinyls. In addition to the more traditional merchandise, they are offering signed Flo Mounier cymbals, online lessons with each band member, guest performances and a song mix by their guitarist and sound engineer Chris Donaldson. For those who are interested in memorabilia, they are offering stage banners that have been used since 2012. Cryptopsy's $20,000 goal will fund the recording, mixing and mastering of The Book of Suffering Tome 1, as well as produce artwork, a music video and stage banners. Additional rewards such as a play-through video, a tour documentary and more music will be unlocked for all backers if they surpass their goal. Cryptopsy have stated: "We hope that every extreme metal fan will be exposed to The Book of Suffering Tome 1. We are extremely proud of the material; it is some of the most brutal, technical and fresh music we have ever created."

"hey guys, let's make a new album" "nah man too broke can't afford it, spend all of my money on booze and coke" "dude, obviously we can just crowdfund it, go to a shitty recording studio do 2, or 3 songs and with the extra money we make, we can spend more on booze and coke!" "fck yeah man, let's do a ripper"

makes way more sense to buy/preorder the album and have that money fund its release rather than try to build up inventory and try to recoup it afterwards. good on them.

Crowd funding an album is fine since the people who actually want the album, in the end will receive said album. What's bullshit is asking for handouts when your van is broken into and your shit is stolen. No one's problem but yours. Gtfo. That said, 20 grand for an EP is hilarious

Twenty Thousand Dollars for an EP Twenty Thousand Dollars

anonymous 5/8/2015 2:30:17 PM

I'm fine with them getting 20k but not by charging $30 for a 7in. This is a joke, right?

Book Of Suffering was Lord Worm's idea. Do it with him or bust.

anonymous 5/8/2015 6:03:15 PM

Why....the fck....isn't anybody.....making......do ug jokes........

Well its fun to see that 95% of people cant read here! First off the EP was mixe by Jason Suecoff who is really not cheap! Almost 8K just for him. Second its not just for an EP, its for printing, videos, stage banners, artwork. At 20k with all the fees, printing fees and shipping, we just recup. Chris

Release show will be at Bluffington Open Air

anonymous 5/9/2015 12:07:53 PM

That's a very expensive number for a band choosing to go independent. Surely a label could fund all this.
