about

"Crypt Rot start it off with two songs, “Butchered Slumber” and “Serpentine Atonement,” which tear through the listener with stunning ferocity, bulldozing riffs and disgusting vocals. They’re met with equal intensity from Cringe, whose thrash sensibilities practically demand headbanging."

"8 out of 10"
-Metal Trenches

"Sweet mother of splits, this one is going to be a beast. Crypt Rot are as filthy as their name suggests; “Serpentine Atonement” is seven and a half minutes of scorching death metal riffing and ravaging screams punctuated by chaotic shredding. There’s a little vocal surprise in there too that blew me away when it hit- it’s jarring, but it works. Cringe veer more into thrash territory with “Searing Sin,” which could easily hang with the pioneers of the genre. It’s decidedly more clean-cut, but no less unhinged. Don’t come into this one unprepared."

"This record is goddamn insane. This is one of those death metal splits where not only can you see the bodies flying around the room during the release show, but you can see the scene forming up out of the sheer emotional power that these two groups bring to the fore. Crypt rot's side of the split in and of itself is something I've spun three or four sides today, whereas Cringe deliver the kind of weird and maddeningly fucked up potency that we can't help but to fall in love with as fans of the modern death metal scene."

"This is quite savage stuff [ Crypt Rot ]. Like a cross between Dismember and the more extreme side of At The Gates, there are two tracks on this release and both of them are very satisfying slices of lethal death metal."

Crypt Rot has gained some international noteriety w/ their debut EP, "Embryonic Devils", released by Southern Lord last year. It also doesn't hurt that the band share members w/ Homewrecker and Scorched either. Since their debut release, the band has continued to stay busy playing countless shows along with some short tour runs supporting the likes of Morta Skuld, Embalmer, Scorched, Like Rats and more. While the band loosely fit in that retro SweDeath resurgence, they share more similarities to Carnage than they do Entombed. There are also hints of their punk/hardcore roots that reflect in D-Beat fashion, all the while maintaining a more black metal image. The two new songs presented on this Split, while recorded over a year ago, act as a sneak peak into the direction the band are currently headed.

Cringe ride the other side of the spectrum - their foundation firmly planted in the Thrash arena. In a similar fashion to their Ashtabula brothers Crypt Rot, they too proudly wear their punk/hardcore influences on their sleeve while paving their own path in the extreme. Although there is currently a big thrash revival in underground circles, i.e. (citing another Ohio act's) Midnight & HAMMR, Cringe take their cues from early Slayer, Possessed, DRI and Exodus rather than Motorhead, Kreator, Sodom, and Destruction. Similar to Crypt Rot, the band have an underlining hardcore aesthetic that comes through in a geniune / non-contrived fashion. Their self-released debut, "Into the Mist", brought me back to when I first heard "Show No Mercy" and "Hell Awaits". These gents, while still youngsters, are HUNGRY and tour almost non-stop throughout the year attempting to leave their mark on the minds of rabid metal fans nationwide. Like Crypt Rot's offering on this EP, Cringe's contribution gives insight to their upcoming debut full-length to be released later this year on none other than Seeing Red Records.
