Montreal-based extreme metallers CRYPTOPSY will support TESTAMENT on Sunday, August 3 at L'Olympia de Montreal in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Also scheduled to appear are Barrie, Ontario's REMAIN and Toronto's SKORCHED.

Todd Cardini of conducted an interview with drummer Flo Mounier of CRYPTOPSY on June 28, 2008 at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey (where the band was performing as part of this year's Summer Slaughter tour). Watch the four-minute chat below.

"The Unspoken King", CRYPTOPSY's sixth full-length and first to feature new singer Matt McGachy, was released June 24 to a wide array of reactions. Flo Mounier recently explained his intention in reshaping the dynamics of the band to Decibel magazine: "I'm a fan of different sorts of music, and I think it's most fun when a band puts out an album that has elements of everything; you get this thing called diversity, not boredom. That's what we're trying to do. Still, I think people are going to be surprised how brutal this album is."

"The Unspoken King" sold 1,300 copies in the United States in its first two weeks of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

CRYPTOPSY's last CD, "Once Was Not", registered a first-week U.S. tally of 1,200 back in October 2005.
