CRYPTOPSY in January tapped bassist Olivier Pinard (NEURAXIS, VENGEFUL) as the replacement for guitarist-turned-bassist Youri Raymond.
Raymond left CRYPTOPSY in December, explaining in a statement that “it’s in the best interest of both the band and I to part ways.” He added, “As a musician, moving from guitar to bass was a great challenge, but honestly, I never really felt comfortable in that position and my motivation in general was stagnating.”
Lead guitarist and songwriter Jon Levasseur rejoined CRYPTOPSY in May 2011.
“The Unspoken King”, CRYPTOPSY‘s sixth full-length and first to feature new vocalist Matt McGachy, was released on June 24, 2008.
