Formed in Canada, 1992, the band started out with the name Necrosis but soon changed it to Cryptopsy. The first and only demo was called "Ungentle Exhumation" and was released in the following year. In 1994 their first full-length was released, "Blasphemy Made Flesh", and it gained them succes and a good reputation in the underground. In 1996 they released the classic "None So Vile" which was a huge succes and surpassed other bands in terms of brutality. Sadly, Lord Worm left the band after the release. Michael DiSalvo (Infestation) later joined the band and he was the perfect replacement. After an impressive live show at the Milwaukee Metal Festival the band were signed to Century Media Records. With a new frontman and a record deal, the band recorded "Whisper Supremacy" which was released in 1998. They went on tours around the world and sales were up to 50,000 copies. Cryptopsy was becoming bigger and bigger and more live shows where played including the Dynamo Festival in Holland and several shows in Japan. After a wealth of tours the band returned to the studio and recorded "And Then You'll Beg" which was released in 2000. In August 2001, vocalist Michael DiSalvo was replaced by Martin Lacroix. In 2003 they released the live album, "None So Live", which was the last to feature Martin Lacroix as he left the band shortly after. His replacement was none other than the original vocalist, Lord Worm.
Originating from the Montreal area, this group first appeared in 1992, when it was called Necrosis; in the same year it was reincarnated under the name of Cryptopsy. With just a demo called Ungentle Exhumation and then the album Blasphemy Made Flesh (1994), the group acquired a solid reputation on the international scene. Their release of None So Vile in 1996 was the first burst of brilliance in their career.
