Crypts - Crypts

Reviewed by: hiddentrack (09/06/12)
Crypts - Crypts
Record Label: Sargent House
Release Date: September 4, 2012

Who?

Crypts is the new project of ex-These Arms Are Snakes vocalist Steve Snere, programmer Bryce Brown, and visual artist Nick Bartoletti.

How is it?

The debut album from the Seattle trio showcases deep, driving bass lines, pulsating synths and distorted vocals. It borrows themes from Nine Inch Nails and hip hop production to craft a dark blend of electro and bass-driven melodies. Snere's vocals lean heavily on the post-hardcore aspects from his previous band, which fit perfectly with the haunting mix of synths and glitchy electronic beats. Granted, there isn't much variety here, but with only eight tracks, it isn't long enough to bore the listener. Standout tracks include "Territories", "Smut" and "Bloods".
