They died the minute Jon Levasseur left because, as this album shows, they can't write songs worth a dead man's last fuck.Yeah they still have Lord Worm and his demented 'poetry' but what good is it if the songs sound so disjointed, so random, so...wank! Stay away from this shit folks! The demo version of this track was eagerly downloaded by the hordes of Cryptopsy fans way before the release of the album. Carrionshine is a pure blast of brutality, short and sweet. It is one of the most atmosphere inspiring Cryptopsy song ever written. Fuck, they've even got an exotic, hippie-like drum circle instrumental called "The End", all that's missing is a Ravi Shankar guest spot... For the first time, Cryptopsy are even incorporating orchestration, in the track "Angelskingarden" (what a title) with its sweeping, atmospheric synth intro and the choir tones coming in under the lead.

Of course, this is nothing new for Cryptopsy, as each album since "Whisper Supremacy" has garnered an increasing amount of controversy and confusion within the band's established fanbase, and the lukewarm reviews for "Once Was Not" are no doubt due in part to this being the band's most experimental and bizarre recording to date.

The vocals are not similar to those on "None So Vile", which he is known for so well. His guttural, zombie-like rampage upon the mic in the past is no more, instead replaced by a somewhat more conventional death grunt and greater focus on rasped screams. This, of course, eventually happened with the 2012 debut of Rage Nucleaire. The song itself is rather dynamic, filled with interesting blast/grinding sections, memorable riffing, impressive leads, and even and some more Spanish style classical guitar work. Album Rating: 4.0This is a sad time for Cryptopsy. Unfortunately, sometimes the songs sound a bit disjointed and insubstantial, at times passing in one ear and out the other. The production on this album is a bit weak in comparison to the Mike DiSalvo era of Cryptopsy. However this is an album that proudly calves a path for itself with any listener who is willing to give it a shot in its entirety. Right or wrong, that output earned the band the dreaded deathcore tag, and the clean vocals of new frontman Matt McGachy (3 Mile Scream) went over like a turd in a punchbowl. This is not your standard, constant blast beats, tremolo picked Death Metal album. This was released on the Century Media website, right before the album leaked. Even the band's previous album, "...And then You'll Beg", which has been somewhat infamously reviled over the years due to it's extremely confusing and disjointed song-writing style, was much more focused and memorable than this album. The album is produced in a modern, but a bit odd way and while I really like it, I think it's an acquired taste. And what was the mob's response to this product of five years time? As many fans can probably recall, Cryptopsy released this as a pre-production demo earlier in 2005. Discover more music, concerts, videos, and pictures with the largest catalogue online at Last.fm.

My favourite songs: This guy is a random rhythm generator with a human brain and machine-like endurance. Once Was Not is the most dynamic and narrative Cryptopsy album in existence, thanks to its mysterious sounding interludes, acoustic moments and even the use of symphony in a few songs. slotID: 'div-gpt-ad-1452878747555-0', //example: 'div-gpt-ad-1475102693815-0' Anyone else who likes death metal, brutal or otherwise, avoid like crazy.

Written by the band essentially without a vocalist (and soon to lack a lead guitarist; Jon Levasseur announced his departure in January of 2005, much to the disappointment of fans), the Worm was brought in seemingly on a whim, and upon his acceptance of the offer (which was uncomfortably monetarily oriented, in my opinion) he for all intents and purposes had a CD thrown on his lap and told to write the lyrics and vocal lines for this fully assembled album. This album does not, unfortunately, revive the fires of the band's earliest years. position: absolute; So while the mix is continuously dominated by Flo Mounier’s overwhelming percussive onslaught (and yes, his skills are still on full display here, even when the material is sub-par), the guitars are left sounding woefully light and buried. Flo's ego starts showing on this record, he's front row center and so damn loud you can't really hear anything else. Flo's double bass and cymbal work pretty much dominates the first two minutes of this song, with the riffs mainly chugging away in the background. As far as stylistic differences are concerned, tracks such as the epic closer "Endless Cemetery" feature a more direct focus on higher-ranged screams, while "The Pestilence that Walketh In Darkness" and "Adeste Infidelis" make use of spoken word, the former's example being a prominent bible verse, which gives the song a distinctive, almost militant-vibe. With all the glory of a conquering hero, Lord Worm was returning to the fold, and for a brief moment, doves sang out, dwarves danced in the streets, and all seemed right in the world. The overarching theme of war is both sonically and lyrically conveyed without fail. You'd think the guitar intro would lead into some pussy soft rock love song or something. Completely instrumental, played on traditional instruments. The production of the album is such that the drums are so overpowering the guitars are barely audible, which is a shame seeing that their guitarists are talented, too. slots: [{ But unlike their latest offering of riff fragment collages that are at least stylistically consistent, here the band has purposefully thrown out nearly every style of music imaginable in the most unorganized way possible. Haven't heard the album and don't really have any intention to, it has to be said. Artist: Cryptopsy Album: Once Was Not Year: 2005 Length: 49 min 40 sec. What was it that surprised people? A hope that their latest musical output, The Unspoken King, is nothing more than an elaborate hoax, meant as a parody to the recent surge of so-called heavy and brutal deathcore bands. Back when you can still hear Eric Langlois! That would be fucking pathetic. googletag.pubads().disableInitialLoad(); $('#hidebox').show(); But if you want the same thing for the entire duration of a record, then go listen to a Disgorge album. Despite my respect for his abilities, Lord Worm is completely out of place on here, and if he had not been on this album it would have received the exact same treatment as “The Unspoken King” has. I do think that the guys in DragonForce are the best guitarists in the world today, but these guys are pretty fucking impressive themselves. width: 100%; It's atmospheric keyboards, then vintage Cryptopsy, then thrash, then mid-paced lumbering over the same riff, then electronics, then an almost black metallish tremolo riff, then another one, then some masterful usage of one chord (remember Graves of the Fathers? Cool review, anyway. { I too was a bit concerned about the album, because it opens up with a clean arpeggio guitar line, and then goes into a melodic, groove based intro. But here it was, packed to the brim with twists and turns that worked rather debatably given the fan. review hard rock voodoo circle. The rest of the guys in Cryptopsy sound better then ever tough.

Granted, a lot of the guitar progressions, especially in earlier cuts like "Carrionshine" or "In the Kingdom Where Everything Dies, the Sky is Mortal", are total dullards, regardless of how unhinged, dynamically varied, or slamming they become. "Endless Cemetery" has evil written all over it. Endless Cemetery is also a song that you may want to stay away from if you are worried about this album destroying fond memories of Lord Worm's demonic vocals from the band's first two installments in their discography. But I couldn't do it. You can hear the accents, dynamics and everything, and that's amazing, considering the drum master sitting behind the kit. But I wouldn't call it annoying.

Following the clean introduction song Luminum this album is non stop 100% brutality with some ridiculously technical guitar work and drums that only the devil could have crafted. " There are a few sections of “Angelskingarden” and “Endless Cemetary” where this can be observed in its purest form. That is the reason why I continue to love this CD. They wanted some super-br00tal teknikal death metalzz and they didn't get their wish. To call Once Was Not one of the worst in Cryptopsy's discography, now seven chapters long, is not really saying a lot. The first track from the record is called "Luminum", and it is basically a sweet, yet sorrowful, classical guitar intro. And Worm's shrieking over that riff.
