Cryptic is a band from Poland who releases an album after one demo they did back in 2004. Sound wise they basically have that typical Polish sound a band like Vader also has. Yet, Cryptic stands out a bit as they incorporate a lot of thrash metal making things fairly aggressive. The combination of deep grunts and screamy vocals remind a bit of Carcass. The class of those bands mentioned Cryptic hasn’t got, ‘Infinite Torment’ is a bit too standard. I miss originality and therefore this album is somewhat mediocre.
