Kryptos was formed in 1998 in Bangalore (IN). They released their debut album ‘Spiral Ascent’ in 2004 and ‘The Ark of Gemini’ in 2008 before heading out on their first European tour in 2010. After signing with AFM Records, the band released their third record, ‘The Coils of Apollyon’, in 2012, which met with great acclaim. The band followed this up with their first ever appearance at Wacken Open Air in 2013, a European tour in 2014 and a supporting tour with Death Angel in 2015.
2016 saw the worldwide release of their 4th record, ‘Burn Up The Night’, which received praise from all quarters for recapturing the magic of the ‘80s. The band then returned to Europe with Sacred Reich and made a second appearance at Wacken Open Air in 2017.
The band then embarked on their first headlining tour of Europe in 2019, and released their fifth and most successful album to date, the vicious and dynamic ‘Afterburner‘, which proudly followed in the best traditions of Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Accept and Thin Lizzy.
In 2021, Kryptos are set to put the pedal to the absolute metal as they once again bringing their blistering brand of ‘80s inspired heavy metal to the masses with their highly anticipated 6th album, ‘Force of Danger, followed by a second tour of Europe as they continue to fly the flag for traditional metal into the future and beyond.
