INVENTORY UPDATES! - 18 nov 2014
Loads of new brutal Death, Black and Thrash albums have been added to the inventory list.
LEPROSY ! - 11 okt 2014
One of Sweden´s best kept secrets of the early Thrash/Death Metal genre – Leprosy - will be brought to a wider audience by the release of a record featuring their two legendary demotapes from ´88 and ´90.
The band Leprosy was formed in the 80´s and immediately made a great impact in the scene with their first demo “Death To This World” – a furious thrashing mayhem with awesome leads and brutal vocals. Leprosy was a low profile band who kept to themselves in the Swedish metal community. They only made a handful of gigs, mostly in Germany where they opened for bands such as Sodom, Pestilence, Rostok Vampires and Coroner. Their second demo “Full Of Hate” was never officially released and only spread to a few lucky bastards in 1990. Soon thereafter the band split up and for many years people kept talking about the “Death To This World”-demo despite the fact that no-one really knew who Leprosy was.
Cryptorium Records together with To The Death Records are currently working with members from Leprosy on a forthcoming release compiling the band´s demos on a record for the first time. The CD version will be released by Cryptorium Records and the vinyl version will be released by To The Death Records, both in a limited quantity.
No certain date of release yet, more info soon!

MEGA SLAUGHTER - 21 mar 2013
We will unleash a long awaited classic gem of Swedish Death Metal on Good Friday(the day when Jesus slowly DIED on the cross) the 29th of March.
On the day of death by the bastard son of God, the birth of a hellish beast will come. And the name of the beast is Mega Slaughter.
MEGA SLAUGHTER - 1 feb 2013
Many might be wondering what is going on with the Mega Slaughter release. We can assure you it will be released. Many different things and some very unlikely sort of events has caused its delay over and over again, very much to our frustration. What has been dragging out the time lately, that we also did´nt want to make official until things were sorted out, is that other labels(or assholes saying they represent labels) claimed to have the rights for the album and wanted to stop us from releasing it. All this has proven to be nothing but lies from their side. We have had the permission from the members of the band the whole time. We have worked closely together with some of the bandmembers during the whole process so that they could have their input aswell for the best possible release(Sorry Jens, we just could´nt find you in time). There has also been some minor misunderstandings from serious labels that they got the permission to release the material. This has also been sorted out and we have no hard feelings towards these labels. As of now the release is at the hands of the pressing plant. Unfortunately we can not set a release date just yet. The Mega Slaughter release will come out and it will be massive!
In other news we can also inform that we are working on our next release. We will re-release some extremely hard to find material from one of Swedens most obscure early Thrash/Death Metal bands from the late 80s early 90s. If you have the book “Swedish Death Metal” by Daniel Ekeroth, see page nr. 383 to get a clue, that´s all the info you get for now.
MEGA SLAUGHTER - 19 jul 2012
Regarding the upcoming and very much delayed Mega Slaughter re-release. There has been major fuck ups with the templates for the cover over and over again. The printing company also wanted to make the booklet with thinner paper than usual just to make it all fit. But we did´nt want to cut down on quality so we tried to work out a solution and now we have finally made it. The final product is now about to be sent off for printing.
Many many people have been writing us, asking for the album and it´s release. We are saving every single email address to all you people that wrote us and you can be sure we´re gonna let you all know when the time has come, when this manifestation of death, by the name of Mega Slaughter is available. Thanks for your massive support and interest of this Mega Slaughter release.
KOMMANDANT / NOMINON - 14 jun 2012
THE INSANE SPLIT WITH KOMMANDANT & NOMINON IS OUT NOW!!!
The problems concerning the covers for the KOMMANDANT / NOMINON Split has been solved. New covers have arrived and this evil piece of vinyl is now unleashed!
This release is a poisoned dagger in the face of mankind as Kommandant present one of their relentless weapon, specially for this release, by the name of "Absence Of Light", this to back up their new fullength album "The Draconian Archetype", released by Aeternus Tenebrarum Music Foundation. NOMINON flank up Kommandant on this piece of vinyl by paying homage to Impaled Nazarene and cover their song "Human-Proof", a violent version by Nominon. This shows that their upcoming album "The Cleansing", released by Deathgasm Records, is to be something evil.
KOMMANDANT / NOMINON - 24 apr 2012
If something can go wrong it does go wrong. We have recieved the Kommandant/Nominon 7"s but something has gone horribly wrong with the covers. They´re completely fucked up and as things have to be sorted out with the printing company to make new covers, the release will obviously be delayed ´til further notice.
KOMMANDANT / NOMINON RELEASE! - 13 apr 2012
The 25th of April is set to be the release date for the new 7”-split by KOMMANDANT(US) and NOMINON(swe).
Any day now, the new fullength album “The Draconian Archetype” by KOMMANDANT will be released by Aeternus Tenebrarum Music Foundation. And to back this up they also present the new song “Absence Of Light”, not featured on the album, on this 7”-split. “Absence Of Light” contain the sharp edge sound and furious intensity that can be found on their previous releases but also the dark development that can be heard on their coming fullength. By KOMMANDANTs strict request of whom to stand by their side during this specifically charge of maneuver, the other half on this piece of vinyl features the death platoon NOMINON. For this release NOMINON decided it would fit perfectly to record a violent cover of “Human-Proof” by Impaled Nazarene. NOMINONs version of “Human-Proof” brings nuclear mayhem and speed to the battlefield, a violent teaser ´til their 5th fullenght album that is being recorded at this very moment.
MEGA SLAUGHTER - 2 jan 2012
The upcoming re-release of the classic Mega Slaughter album "Calls From The Beyond" will be delayed! Cryptorium Records want to inform that the album was just about to go on printing when suddenly some forgotten pictures and new material from the old days were found. This new found material was considered too important not to be featured in the booklet of the album whereas the release was immediately brought back to be reworked. The booklet will now feature over 40 pages of material from the band. As the booklet will contain more than 40 pages it can no longer fit into a normal jewel case, therefore the work including layout are also being done to make the release a double digipack able to fit the massive booklet. If everything goes well, the album will hopefully be out February or March, further info about a release date will be posted when the time comes.
NEW RELEASES! - 23 jun 2011
KOMMANDANT / NOMINON 7”-SPLIT OF WAR & DISGUST
Awhile ago the militant US warmachine KOMMANDANT and the Swedish deathfuckers of disgust NOMINON decided to join forces for a relentless attack by violent force and hate to all that is nice and loving humanity by sharing the space on an 7” vinyl that´ll be released by Cryptorium Records.
KOMMANDANT featuring members that used to spread violent disease through renowned acts like Incestuous, Contagion/Funereal, Krieg, Nachtmystium, Cianide and more, will contribute with a new song called “Absence Of Light”, spawned by the same intensity of blitzkrieg mayhem that fulfilled their debut album “Stormlegion” and Ep. “Kontakt” released awhile ago.
NOMINON will contribute to this split release by covering Impaled Nazarene. They´ve taken one of Impaled´s “newer” songs, “Human Proof” from the album “Nihil”, transformed it into the style of Nominon but still kept the special tension of insanity that Impaled Nazarene originally put into the song.
Some work as covers and some other minor stuff is still to be made, further news will come in the near future of the exact date of release.
MEGASLAUGHTER 2-CD RE-RELEASE, 20th YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF “CALLS FROM THE BEYOND”
Cryptorium Records will be re-releasing the classic album “Calls From The Beyond”, originally released by Thrash Records in 1991 on vinyl only, by the Swedish death metal band Megaslaughter. This release will be the first proper re-release of the album with great soundquality and a bonus CD featuring all the demos as Negative Bitch demo´89, Death Remains demo´90, Demo ´91 and 2 never before released reh. songs made in the end of ´91. With contribution by the former members the booklet will be full of never before seen photos, flyers and gigposters spanning the period between 1988 ´til 1992. A new cover artwork has been provided by renowned artist Joe Petagno(Marduk, Angelcorpse, Motörhead, Diabolic etc.), the new cover is based on the original artwork and also feature the bands real logo. When the album was first released in 1991 the frontcover was made without the bands control and has become known as one of the most sloppy made covers in the history of death metal, it did´nt even feature the bands own logo, the artist just made up a logo for the band and painted it on the cover. The original cover will be featured in the booklet just as the covers for all the demos but for this re-release and to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the album as one of the best and obscure albums of early Swedish death metal we thought it was time to give the album a proper cover artwork. Some minor work is still being made with the layout, further news will come of the exact date of release etc.
