CRYPTICUS presents its second Horror Grind Mixtape "Chains For Devils" - an original Death Metal mini-anthology designed to confound, horrify, & delight. A complete mini album of skull-crushing Pulp Death Metal with a few special guests. Collect them all!
(Bonus ASPHYX cover included!)
"(Crypticus is) like being trapped in a Gothic horror movie while a metal band is jamming somewhere in the castle. Each new release is even more insane then the last one. I think it will be a few more spins to peel all the layers. (...) should be mandatory to own for every book lover & collector of horror magazines and comics."
