First of all, welcome to our Kickstarter campaign and thanks for checking us out!!

The new album, 'Continuum' will be our 6th studio release (check out our older releases HERE), yet it's only our 2nd full length. We want to do something special for this one, meaning.. full album artwork, insert booklet with lyrics/additional content, t-shirts and hoodies with the album design, etc.. We've enlisted Colin Marks (Whitechapel, Scar Symmetry, Allegaeon, Sylosis) to handle the artwork duties so we're very excited about that! Mastering will likely be handled by Alan Douches of West West Side Music (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Shadows Fall, Job for a Cowboy, Nile). So you can expect it to sound brutal!

With respect to songwriting, we have worked hard to include the best of the elements that we consider to be Cryogen. Our past releases have been somewhat varied in style, and for this album we've combined the technicality of Despara with the more melodic tendencies of Psalms of Deceit and This Nightmare. The result is a crushing blend of melody and brutality that sees Cryogen stylistically coming into its own.

Below is a unmastered pre-production demo track from the new album for you to check out. Please note that the track is not representative of the final release, we just wanted to give you some badass tunage you could check out. \m/

The good news is we are funding and handling the production and direction of the project completely on our own. This means we call all the shots. It's also good for you since you're able to dictate the direction the album takes!

If we meet our goal we can bring you a full album package, including digipack style CD packaging with a lyrics insert booklet and t-shirts and hoodies featuring the album art by Colin Marks. If we exceed our goal we can do even more, like producing a studio/live DVD, hiring a string quintet for the string parts that we wrote, etc.! The possibilities for extras are pretty endless and all come down to what contributors would like to see. As the campaign moves forward we will keep you updated on what we are considering. Of course, we welcome your input as well! If you ever wanted a Cryogen shot glass, or maybe even a Cryogen thong ;) .. now is the time to help support us so we can get that stuff made!

Risks and challenges

Recording an album is always a challenge - not just tracking individual instruments, but following through with all the little details like: creating a great mix, getting artwork together for pressing, promoting on a tight budget, etc.. We've done this for 5 previous releases, so we're pretty much experts at it! Rest assured, this album will be released as promised, and the more that you help contribute the greater it will be. Thanks! \m/
