    (Higher Quality Version)

    An "Exotic Groove Metal" song by Baltimore's Cryptic Matter with a strong Middle-Eastern vibe. This song utilizes sitar simulators, Middle-Eastern scales, and bellydancing drum beats on-top of a typical rock instrumentation of distorted guitar shredding, funky bellydancing drum beats, clean/screamo vocals, and a driving bass line. This song is available off our self-titled debut EP "Cryptic Matter" found on iTunes, Amazon mp3, and Google Play.

    "The cross-pollination of Steve's metal guitar work with Justin's funk-rock drumming resulted in Cryptic Matter's unique sound, "Exotic Groove Metal," characterized by heavy guitar riffs/solos written in exotic scales, sitar simulators, Middle-Eastern drones, and hypnotic belly dancing-like drum beats. Meanwhile, Adam weaves funky/groovy bass lines underneath Devin's screamo/melodic vocal attack."
