Formed in as early as 1998, "Kryptos" is perhaps the only true to the bone Thrash Metal band in India. Though the sound of the band borders on Melodic Metal to some extent, the main essence is that of 1980’s kick in the ass Thrash Metal. Conceived in Bangalore by vocalist/guitarist Nolan Lewis and Ganesh K (ex-vocalist/bassist), the band has released three hugely acclaimed albums till date. "Spiral Ascent" in 2004, "The Ark Of Gemini" in 2008 and the more recent "The Coils Of Apollyon" in February 2012. Their debut album was not only a rage in the Indian Underground, but also spread to U.S and parts of Europe, thus resulting in signing a deal with Old School Metal Records (California, U.S) in 2008.
