Cryptopsy
And Then You`ll Beg
November 2000
Released: 2000, Century Media Records
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: Rick

"You Hear That?... That is the sound of Inevitability". That is how And Then You’ll Beg begins. This is the new CD from Canadian extreme metal masters Cryptopsy. I have to admit that I am not the worlds foremost authority on Extreme Metal. That being said I am a metal fan and I listen to many band from the whole gamut of the metal spectrum. One of those bands from the extreme end of the spectrum happens to be Cryptopsy. The bands last CD Whisper Supremacy is one amazing piece of extreme metal and many thought that Cryptopsy would be hard pressed to top it. Well I don’t know about topping it but And Then You’ll Beg is certainly giving it a run for its money. This is Cryptopsy’s 4th release. The others being Blasphemy Made Flesh (94), None So Vile (96) and Whisper Supremacy (98). The lineup consists of Mike DiSalvo : vocals, Jon Levasseur : lead and rhythm guitars, Alex Auburn : rhythm and lead guitars, vocals, Eric Langlois : bass and Flo Mounier : drums, vocals.



Cryptopsy waste no time getting down to business as the opening track "...And Then It Passes" is one brutal slab of metal. "We Bleed" is up next and is one of my favourite songs on the disc. This is just brutal. Lots of great drumming from Flo Mounier. DiSalvo is a great replacement for Lord Worm in my opinion. Lord Worm was much more of a grunter than DiSalvo.who seems to make an effort to annunciate a little more. "Soar and Envision Sore Vision" is a different type of track where the band gets a little more experimental and little less brutal. Great tune. Track 9 "Screams Go Unheard" opens with some heavily synthesised screaming that to me sounds like some futuristic sewer dwelling cannibal...... Well the song incorporates these screams. This track is just a straight forward, head down go for it, , neck wrecking, vertebrate twisting, smorgasbord of extreme metal. The perfect way to end a great disc.



This is just one of those CDs that screams METAL!! When I put this CD on I get the urge to just band my head till it falls off and rolls around on the floor. A bit of an extreme condition but I expect nothing less from the current leaders of the extreme metal movement.

Canada’s heaviest is back with this magnificent opus, and I’ve got 2 words for you, Flo Mounier. Cryptopsy features some top notch musicians all around, but this guy really takes the cake, among the top drummers in the world today by far. This is heavy, brutal, unbelievably technical and just plain excellent death metal. The one thing that sets Cryptopsy apart from the pack of other death metal bands is the fact that they are never stagnant, the music is always inventive and fluent while it also remains brutal and heavy as hell. I still prefer “the whisper supremacy”, but this album is a must have for fans!
