Biography

Eskilstuna, Sweden (1990 – 1994, 2006 – present)

Crypt of Kerberos was formed in October 1990 in Eskilstuna, Sweden, from the ashes of their former group Macrodex. After a short time of rehearsals the group got offered to release a 7” EP on the small obscure underground label Sunable Records. This resulted in the “Visions Beyond Darkness” EP (limited to 500 copies). The release of the vinyl single left a lot to be wished for as the whole pressing was heavily distorted. In 1991 the group recorded one unreleased demo cassette entitled “From The Abyss”. The first official release from Crypt Of Kerberos was “Demo 91”, the tape which contained four songs proved to be popular with tape traders across the globe. The band performed concerts with among others Bolt Thrower, At the Gates and Unleashed.

Guitarist Johan was removed from his position and Jonas Strandell was recruited to fill the position. Only a couple of months after the first demo hit the underground it was time for the second tape. This time it was named “Promo 91” and contained five tracks. This release was mainly spread to record labels. These songs showed a huge improvement in the groups ability, both as song writers, musicians and production wise.

In late 1991 the group was approached by French record company Adipocere Records and after some negotions the group signed for one 7” EP and one full length CD. The EP was recorded in Studio Skyline in February 1992. After the recording, drummer Mikael Sjöberg left the group. The EP featured a cover designed and made by bass player Stefan Karlsson.

    Can anyone hook me up with a rip of the 7" from 1991, Cyclone of Insanity? I seriously cannot find this thing anywhere and it's amazing.

    Thanks a lot Layon. I figured that also, but I wanted to know about the rest of the songs.

    To me, it's rather clear that the songs on which Daniel Gildenlöw sings are these three softer songs, i.e. tracks 15,16 and 17. As it is written in the Macrodex of War's booklet, Crypt Of Kerberos intended to release a second full length and had material for a more progressive metal album.

    I was wondering about what assman said down there. If you check Daniel Gildenlow's page in Wikipedia, it says he recorded something in "Macrodex of War". I'd REALLY like to know which songs he recorded.

    Their early demos have the darkest production I've ever heard.

    I believe it was 'The Dark Side of the Moon (1990)". http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0099364/ At least that's what I remember being on the 7",

    Does anyone know what the samples in 'Devastator' are from?

    I can't wait for The Crypt to re-issue the discography on vinyl format.

    later crypt of kerberos could very easily be construed as 'melodic death metal'.
