"Ancient Crypts may be a new name, but this Chilean cult includes scene veterans from such revered bands as Unaussprechlichen Kulten and Invincible Force. Unmistakably South American in its humid, hellish intensity, Ancient Crypt's Devoured by Serpents demo ravages and conquers, defiles and reviles, reverent of the ancient Metal of Death whilst often dragging the decibels down into doom-entrenched muck.
