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 June 24, 2008 to a wide array of reactions. Drummer Flo Mounier explained his intention in reshaping the dynamics of the band to Decibel magazine: “I’m a fan of different sorts of music, and I think it’s most fun when a band puts out an album that has elements of everything; you get this thing called diversity, not boredom. That’s what we’re trying to do. Still, I think people are going to be surprised how brutal this album is.”
