Kryptos is old school heavy/thrash metal from Bangalore in India. Raging, traditional heavy metal blazing with the spirit and attitude of the glorious 80s. Metal the way it was always meant to be. Kryptos have published a video for the track Afterburner, which is taken off from the band’s upcoming album of the same name and will be released on June 21st, 2019 via AFM Records.
Frontman Nolan Lewis comments on the track: «Horns up headbangers! Bust out the spikes and whip out those bullet belts. Coming at you like a leather studded nuclear bomb is the blazing title track off the brand new album, Afterburner. This is the bastard child of Judas Priest and Motorhead at their devastating best, so crank the volume to 11 and kiss your neck goodbye. It’s fast, it’s furious, it’s metal and it sure as hell doesn’t fuck around. Time to succumb to the fury of the Afterburner!»
Kryptos were formed in 1998 and have long been considered one of the spearheads of the Indian heavy metal revolution. With four critically acclaimed albums under their belt, and a fifth one releasing this month, they have supported some of metal’s biggest names like Iron Maiden, Testament, Kreator and Exodus, earning themselves a reputation as a fiery and exciting live act.
