Crypta Part Ways With Guitarist Sonia Anubis

Crypta have parted ways with guitarist Sonia Anubis. Despite this, the group “still have some video material recorded with Sonia and they will soon be released as a memory of the legacy [they] built together.”

The band commented:

“With heavy hearts we announce that Sonia is parting ways with CRYPTA! It was her decision and we understand and respect it, so both sides will now follow new and different paths.

We all feel sad to see her go but at the same time feel very thankful for all the amazing and beautiful things we built together so far. Sonia had a unique importance from the beginning of the band until now and her essence and contribution to the band will always be a special part of CRYPTA.

Our split was friendly and respectful, we will keep in touch and we definitely wish nothing but the best of luck for her, for her band Cobra Spell and for all her future ventures.

We still have some video material recorded with Sonia and they will soon be released as a memory of the legacy we built together.

We ask all of you kind fans to respect this sensitive moment for all of us and show some love only on the comments!
Thank you Sonia!

**Our future activities and plans from Crypta will not be affected and all the shows and appointments schedule will still run as announced. More info soon!”

Crypta Premiere “I Resign” Music Video

Crypta have premiered a new video for their new song “I Resign.“ This track will be available on 7″ vinyl along with a live version of “Shadow Within.“ That record will be included with the reissue of the band’s 2021 album “Echoes Of The Soul,“ which is set to be released on April 1.

Guitarist Tainá Bergamaschi commented

“‘I Resign‘ is a song that features elements from most of our main influences, along with characteristics from both our previously released album ‘Echoes Of The Soul‘ and the new material we’ve been writing. We tried to blend epic melodies followed by aggressive riffs throughout the track, which, combined with the lyrics, tell a story of despair.”

Vocalist/bassist Fernanda Lira added:

“We thought unveiling an unreleased track right now would be a great way of gifting our fans with something nice while they wait for our tours to start! Also, the lyrics, which are more current than ever, are a good food-for-thought while listening to this very special song for us.”

Crypta (Ex-Nervosa, Ex-Burning Witches, Etc.) Share Playthrough Video For New Song “Dark Night Of The Soul”

Crypta (Ex-Nervosa, Ex-Burning Witches, Etc.) Premiere “Starvation” Lyric Video

Crypta (ex-Nervosa, ex-Burning Witches, etc.) have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Starvation.” This track is from the band’s new album “Echoes Of The Soul,” which will be released on June 11. Vocalist/bassist Fernanda Lira said the following:

“The lyrical content is about one of our society’s worst scourges – starvation! Every night, over a billion people in the world go to sleep without having a proper meal. Besides that, hunger is unfortunately back at haunting millions of Brazilian people now we’re about to be reinstated in the World Hunger Map, so i thought it would be an important topic to raise awareness about.”

Crypta (Ex-Nervosa, Ex-Burning Witches, Etc.) Premiere “From The Ashes” Video

Crypta (ex-Nervosa, ex-Burning Witches, etc.) have premiered a new video for their new song “From The Ashes.” This track is from the band’s new album “Echoes Of The Soul,” which will be released on June 11.

Bassist/vocalist Fernanda Lira commented:

“The song is basically about the well-known tale of the phoenix, but in a more philosophical sense. It talks about the ever-changing cycles of life, about the many endings and beginnings we have to go through, about how many old versions of ourselves need to figuratively die in order for us to keep growing and evolving as human beings, and finally, about building resilience to endure all these rebirths.”

André Gustavo, movie director at O2 Filmes, added:

“I believe the song perfectly matches the current moment we’re living, during which all humanity needs to reinvent itself and be reborn ‘From The Ashes’. The video clip preparation itself can also be translated through it: building up such a big production during this terrible moment we’re living was a big challenge to all of us. I believe, for all of that, from the creative and cinematographic perspective, we had a great final outcome for the videom”

Overall, the band is very excited and feeling so lucky for having the chance of such a big kickstart! We can’t wait to get things going and we hope it’s gonna be a fruitful path together!”
