Former CRYPTOPSY Keyboardist/Samplist Explains Her Departure

July 1, 2008

Former CRYPTOPSY keyboardist/samplist Maggy Durand has posted the following message on her MySpace page:

"You guys never saw me on stage, interview and videos with CRYPTOPSY because, both of us decided that it was better for me to leave the band for many reasons, but the principal one is money problems. Many years ago, I put that little picture on my [Vampire Freaks] profile that says that 'Every time you steal music, god kills a kitten...' I WAS THAT F*CKING KITTEN, YOU, STUPID A*SHOLES DOWNLOADERS AND THERE IS NO GOD!!! Yes, I assure you, downloading music unfortunately kills great artists. Everyone in the media/entertainment industries is really worrying about the problem. So, because of it, I didn't have the luck to experiment what's a video clip realization, neither what's a world tour, but my tracks [are] on the [just-released CRYPTOPSY] album and I still really glad about it: 'The Unspoken King', SO BUY IT IF YOU LIKE IT. For the orther bands who says in their little monkey mind: OMG! She's free to be in an other band... Before to get involved as a keyboarder/samplist/back vocal in an other band, I'll do and wear a five-meter-long necklace made with my own intestines and wear my ex-boyfriend's bloody nuts as ear buckles before it... So it means I never want to be involved in a band again until I'm classified as music arranger or music composer by contract for them. This adventure doesn't bored me at all about music, I still working on my company (still very slow, but in progress) and may accept any contract for film/video games music scoring, band intros/arrangements/compositions, piano show (in Quebec province, except if pay is really interesting...) So, I finished my explanation right here, hope you still enjoy my songs and 'Don't worry, be happy' (Did you know that the author of this hit actually kill himself one day after writing it? Paradox...)"

"The Unspoken King" was released on June 24 via Century Media Records. The CD release coincided with the band's participation in this year's Summer Slaughter touring package featuring some of the finest acts in the genre today.

CRYPTOPSY recently shot a new video for the album's opening cut, "Worship Your Demons", with acclaimed director David Brodsky (GWAR, SOILENT GREEN).

"The Unspoken King" is CRYPTOPSY's first album to feature new vocalist Matt McGachy, who is also a member of 3 MILE SCREAM.
