On September 8th, technical death metal titans Cryptopsy will release their new album As Gomorrah Burns via Nuclear Blast Records, the first full-length in over a decade. Visually, it sports the vividly detailed artwork of Italian oil master Paolo Girardi, providing an apt entry point into the turbulence that is the band's compositions. Lead single In Abeyance paves the path for its arrival.

Frontman Matt McGachy comments:

“I’m excited to finally unveil ‘As Gomorrah Burns.’ It’s an album that we have been crafting for the past five years. A meticulous endeavor that we are proud of. It’s the perfect medley of oldschool Cryptopsy with a few modern twists. We’ve leaned heavily into the grooves and let some of the riffs breathe just a little more than we have on the past few releases. I’m really stoked about the new era of Cryptopsy.”

He adds:

“‘In Abeyance’ is conceptually about feeling isolated while being submerged in a new environment. The hunt for a sense of belonging while mourning a previous life. Musically, it’s a slap in the face. It’s a banger that appears to be straightforward yet remains ultra complex.”

Stream In Abeyance below and pre-order As Gomorrah Burns via Nuclear Blast.
