According to metalsucks.net, the new tracks are actually pretty good!
“After their last album, which was so bad that the only thing I can remember about its title is that the word “king” was in there somewhere, Cryptopsy have some ‘splainin’ to do. But hip-hip-hooray, the band seems to be fully aware that they need to make that last piece of shit up to their fans, which is more than I can say for some bands that follow up their crap albums with crap remix albums. So not only did they recently reward fans who pre-ordered their new, self-titled album with downloads of the first two cuts from that record — which doesn’t come out for another month — but, even more importantly, they made sure that those songs are GOOD.Like, really good. Like, I think you have to be a real stupid cry-baby face not to like them. They’re fast. They’re technical. They’re proggy. They’re HEAVY AS FUCK. They’re gonna make assholes like me stop making fun of this band. In short: they restore Cryptopsy’s good name.” –metalsucks.net
