Hannes Grossmann released by far one of the best technical death metal records in 2014 and he's back to do it all over again. Grossmann, who you might know as the former drummer for Necrophagist and Obscura, or as the current drummer of Alkaloid and Blotted Science, has turned to the crowdfunding route for his new album The Crypts Of Sleep.
Before we get to the single released from the record, let's take a look at the insane lineup he's put together and revealed to MetalSucks! Keep in mind that Grossmann also plays guitars on the record.
- Morean – Vocals (Dark Fortress, Alkaloid)
- Danny Tunker – Rhythm and lead guitars (Abhorrent, Alkaloid, ex-Aborted)
- Linus Klausenitzer – Bass (Obscura, Alkaloid)
- Fountainhead – Solo guitar (ex-Obscura)
- Per Nilsson – Solo guitar (Scar Symmetry)
- Erik Rutan – Solo guitars (Hate Eternal, ex-Morbid Angel)
- Christian Muenzner – Lead guitars (Spawn of Possession, ex-Obscura, etc.)
Largely it's the same lineup as The Radial Covenant, minus a few guests and without vocalist V. Santura (Triptykon, Noneuclid) trading off vocals with Morean. Regardless, the song below is on par with The Radial Covenant, and honestly, this stands to be by far one of the best technical death metal albums of the year.
