In continuing with their brutal technical death metal resurgence as if 2008’s The Unspoken King never happened (their best decision in the eyes of their fans since the one to actually expect fans to warmly embrace The Unspoken King in the first place), Canada’s Cryptopsy have returned once more. Following their widely accepted return-to-force self-titled effort in 2012, as well as the poorly received The Best of Us Bleed compilation later that very year, we are given a brand new four song EP entitled The Book of Sufferings – Tome 1. The now four-piece entity, having lost both guitarist Youri Raymond and his replacement Konrad Rossa in 2013, took to the independent marketing route with this new effort, issuing it through the group’s own official Bandcamp account later this October in CD format, shirt bundles, as well as digital availability. But does this short new creation stand as one worth shelling out for, or is it actually a step backward for the intricate quartet?
