What the press is saying:
«Over this EP’s four track Ecryptus created death metal about lightsaber death, dying in a sarlacc pit, and more». – Metal Injection
«it’s such an adrenaline-fueled shock-and-awe campaign, one that’s technically eye-popping, eerie and evil, and terrifically obliterating». – No Clean Singing
«Crushing display of death metal, Ecryptus delivers…” – The Razor’s Edge
«The performances here are razor sharp and these tracks have proven to be fun and crushing in equal capacity». 8/10 – Metal Trenches
«The universe of Ecryptus is as thick as a bantha and as sharp as a lightsaber. With Kyr’am Beskar, the group shows us that it is always present and ready to take up arms to keep its place in the scene». 8/10″- Acta Infernalis
«Planetary Enslavement is possibly my favorite song on this release. It shows a degree of technicality and proficiency that is a little too uncommon. It’s exceptionally precise in its musicianship and understands that just because you go fast doesn’t make you good. This however is both fast and excellent». 8/10 – Rock Out Stand Out
Ecryptus originally hailing from Korriban, but now stranded in Atlanta, Georgia, Ecryptus plays Star Wars themed death metal and they have a new EP ready for metalheads across the galaxy.
The release of Kyr’am Beskar (Mandalorian for death metal) follows two demos (2002/2004); The Continuum LP (2005); Astral Crusades EP (2008) and a 7-inch single Rancorous (2018/2020). Each of these tells tales of the Dark side and its crusade against the tyranny of the rebel forces.
