Video Premiere: Cryptodira, “In Hell As On Earth”


Cryptodira - Devil's DespairWe’ve been admirers of Cryptodira for some time now here at MetalSucks, having hosted the band on our 2015 CMJ Music Marathon showcase. So we were super stoked to learn that the New York outfit signed with Good Fight Music earlier this year, and we’re even more excited that they asked us to premiere the music video for their brand new track “In Hell As On Earth.”

For the unfamiliar, Cryptodira exist in the nexus of Dillinger Escape Plan-inspired math metal and atmospheric The Contortionist/Cynic-style prog. It’s a glorious combination, but one that’s hard to imagine works as well as it does until you hear the music with your own ears. Trust us, loyal MetalSucks reader: you will like. Listen below as you watch the Anthony Altamura-directed clip.

Cryptodira’s latest, The Devil’s Despair, comes out November 17th via Good Fight; order it here.
