Cryptic Brood, 3 putrid fanatics from Wolfsburg (Germany), are a very promising death metal band born in 2013 and discovered in 2015 by the known Spanish label Xtreem Music (managed by none other can Dave Rotten from Avulsed!) after a demo and a split in collaboration with Graveyard Ghoul. The first seed of this alliance of Cryptic Brood with the aforementioned label was the 2015 "Wormhead" EP, useful to these 3 guys to take their very first European tour playing also in Italy. Now, Cryptic Brood have wanted to capitalize all their efforts into their fantastic debut album "Brain Eater", released recently obviously via Xtreem Music with its mastering made by the same Dave Rotten while its splendidly blood-soaked cover artwork was given to the wise hands of the US artist Joe "Ravager" Romero. And let me say that "Brain Eater" keep completely what that it promises through its cover artwork and title!
