Cryptopsy Drop New Song and Video “Flayed The Swine”


Death metal legends Cryptopsy are back with a new single, “Flayed The Swine.” The song is from their forthcoming album, As Gomorrah Burns, out September 8 via Nuclear Blast Records.

This will be the band’s first record in over a decade, and this track proves that the band are still catchy and in touch with modern death metal sensibilities while also packing a serious punch.

About the song, vocalist Matt McGachy says:

“‘Flayed the Swine’ is one of the catchiest Cryptopsy songs I have ever written. It is brutal, filled with massive groove sections, and extremely vulgar.

“Lyrically, it concentrates on a mental breakdown, an utter loss of control. We all have dark intentions, but we rarely act upon them. The protagonist by the end of the track most certainly wishes they hadn’t.”
