Criptadel "Brutal Imperium" Pro-tape
Glorious martial dungeon synth from Argentina. Criptadel is making an immense return after two previous full-lengths were unleashed in 2019 and 2020. This project always had a dramaturgic streak and some of the heaviest rhythms in the dungeon, but everything has been strengthened, and more influence from classic dungeon synth traditions have been allowed into the Criptadel empire. Brought together by triumphant melodies and feral vocals, this is an exuberant tour de force in contemporary dungeon synth.
Released by Gondolin Records.
