Crypt Trip are a classic power trio hailing from the prolific state of Texas, trailblazers of the exciting new wave of the local hard psych scene with bands such as Fogg, Gypsy Sun Revival or Smokey Mirror.
Already with 3 acclaimed releases under their belts since their inception back in 2013, quickly making a name for themselves around the underground circuit, the band is definitely set to take over the main street with their latest offering “Rootstock”.
Self-released by the band today on cd and on vinyl later on by Poisoned Mind Records, the sophomore LP show us how the band matured and expanded their sound without losing the gnarly “Tejas Groove” perfecting, along the way, their musicianship with intrinsic compositions.
The volatile jams, just like before, are fueled by a highly inflammable rhythm section, with a potent mixture of frenetic drums and roaring bass lines that are set ablaze by the arsonist guitar sending incandescent sparks everywhere with dazzling solos and fiery licks but are now more refined with the addition of proggy and bluesy elements to the already formidable mix of heavy psych and proto doom the band have been known for.
This record is definitely one for the books and will go down on history as mile stone on the revival of the good old 70´s.
