CRYPTIC HATRED - “Mesmerized By The Malignant Gaze” Single Streaming

On July 5, 2024, Finnish death metal outfit Cryptic Hatred will release their highly anticipated second full-length, Internal Torment, via Time To Kill Records.

Today, the deathsters have shared "Mesmerized By The Malignant Gaze”, a brutal new single and harbinger of things to come.

The band commented: “‘Mesmerized By The Malignant Gaze’ is the perfect Cryptic Hatred song, as it combines multiple different genres and inspirations creating this fierce, groovy but atmospheric song. This song is definitely one of the highlights of the album for us!"

Inarguably the band’s most diverse work to date, Internal Torment ventures far beyond the conventions of old school death metal, without surrendering an ounce of viciousness. Strong nuances of doom and creepy melodies can be heard throughout the record’s ten tracks concluding fittingly with a suffocating wall of sound that leaves its listeners bruised, battered, and shaken.

The album highlights the band’s surgical and intuitive take on death metal mechanics - yet also channels eerie atmospheres and dimensions through moments of tension and tranquility, coexisting in a fragile balance. Between riffs born of primal rage, to melodies seemingly from other worlds, Internal Torment is an album that delivers on all levels of darkness in uncanny and transcendental ways.
