CRYPTA

FAC_5360FINAL.jpg

Crypta is a Brazilian Death Metal four-piece.

Around May 2019, Luana Dametto and Fernanda Lira founded Crypta, initially aiming it to be
just a side project where they could write death metal songs – differently from what they had
been doing in their other band. In June of that same year, Dutch guitarist Sonia Anubis
(ex-Burning Witches, Cobra Spell) was invited to join the project. With a provisional trio
lineup, the band began creating their first songs.

Almost a year later, in April 2020, Brazilian guitarist Tainá Bergamaschi was added to the
lineup, consolidating Crypta, finally as a quartet.
That same month, Fernanda and Luana left the band Nervosa, and Crypta became their
main project, being officially presented publicly the following month.

Shortly after that, Crypta signed their first record deal with Napalm Records, as well as a
booking deal with Napalm Events, finished writing their first songs and soon began the
pre-production of their debut album.

In January 2021, they gathered in São Paulo, Brazil, to record their first 'full length', at Family
Mob Studio; “Echoes of the Soul” was recorded in 3 weeks, and it was engineered by Otávio
Rissato, produced by Thiago Vakka (Fossilization, Jupiterian), mixed by Arthur Rizk and
mastered by Jens Bogren, at Fascination Street Studio. The cover art was painted by Wes
Benscoter (Amorphis, Autopsy, Hypocrisy, Kreator, etc...).

They also used their time in Brazil to record their first music video; “From The Ashes”, which
was directed by Brazilian filmmaker André Gustavo (Uncanny Filmes and 02 Filmes) and
had the scenography signed by Pepe Mendes.

In addition to “From The Ashes” – on April 7th – two other singles were released before the
album was officially out; “Starvation” was released as a lyric video on May 11th, and the
latest being an official music video and playthrough, for the song “Dark Night of the Soul”.

Their debut album, “Echoes of the Soul”, was released worldwide on June 11, 2021, via
Napalm Records. It was also licensed and released on the same date, in Brazil and
Argentina by Dynamo Records, in Russia by Soyuz Music and in Japan by Ward Records.

As the band prepared for their first tour, Sonia Anubis decided to leave the band to focus on
her other projects, in March 2022. For the concerts already scheduled, the band
provisionally summoned Brazilian guitarist Jessica di Falchi.

Between May and June of this year, Crypta held a Latin American tour that featured 33 dates
in 11 countries and 17 Brazilian states, some of them alongside the bands NervoChaos,
Krisiun and Belphegor.

Between the months of July and August – during the European summer – they played 20
dates in 10 countries, even featuring in some of the main festivals on the continent, such as
Wacken Open Air (Germany), Extreme Obscene (Czech Republic), among others.


Back in Brazil, they play some of the biggest festivals in Latin America, such as Rock in Rio,
Primavera Sounds (Primavera na Cidade), Rock al Parque, among others, in addition to
other important dates such as 2 sold-out shows on the SESC circuit, a presentation
alongside Arch Enemy, Behemoth and Nervosa in São Paulo and 7 more dates in Mexico
alongside the bands Krisiun and NervoChaos.
Until 2023, the band plans to extend the “Echoes Of The Soul” tour to several places that
have not yet been visited, besides already starting to confirm some important events in this
period, such as participation in the first edition of the Summer Breeze Festival, which will be
held in Sao Paulo.

In October 2022, guitarist Jessica di Falchi was finally made an official member of Crypta
thanks to her chemistry during tours, and with this lineup, the band focuses on finishing
writing their second album, to be released in 2023.


Crypta is: Fernanda Lira (bass and vocals), Tainá Bergamaschi (guitar), Jessica di Falchi
