The alliance of BEVERINA and CASUS BELLI MUSICA presents a debut album of Cascadian black metal act FOREST OF GREY (Seattle, USA) - “Crypsis”.
The album will be released in CD format on May 15, 2018.
Crypsis is predatory camouflage. This piece outlines various connections bridging civility to its carnal roots. A monotonous dirge veiled over shadowed chaos. A hypnotic passage of cognitive discord reflected in ancient mysticism and primeval occult.
The album’s cover art and design were created by Vladimir Prokofyev (Paint-It-Black).
The release will intrigue the fans of Alda, Ash Borer, Fauna, Skagos, Velnias.

"Curse These Metal Hands" parlays the UK bands' chemistry into a record which—for all its tinnitus-inducing ferocity and elegiac arrangements—practically drips with transcendent joy. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 19, 2019

The percussion is not my thing, except for parts of Adaption, but in all other areas this is one of the best black metal albums I’ve heard. Fierce, beautiful, majestic music that transcends its genre. Metallurgical Fire
