Since going independent with 2012's self-titled effort, Quebec's Cryptopsy have been on a tech-death hot streak scorching enough to make the metal community shut up about the almost universally panned The Unspoken King. Now fans will have to wait for the next release in their Book of Suffering EP series, as the band will be busy performing their classic 1996 album None So Vile in its entirety on tour.
Cryptopsy will be playing the album on the third "Devastation on the Nation Tour," which will also feature Decrepit Birth, Rivers of Nihil, the Zenith Passage, the Kennedy Veil, Visceral Disgorge, Seeker and Gloom. While sticking mainly to the U.S., the tour will hit Canada twice — once for a Toronto show and once for tour-closing hometown show for the headliners in Montreal.
You can see the complete list of dates below.
Nothing has been announced regarding the return of None So Vile vocalist Lord Worm, so we're going to assume the mic is still being handled by Matt McGachy, who last appeared on The Book of Suffering - Tome 1 and has been in Cryptopsy since 2007.
