Diving deep into the almost forgotten, THE CRYPT brings you the debut and only album from MYSTO DYSTO! The name MYSTO DYSTO was taken from the ‘Loco Box’ distortion effect pedal. They were a Dutch classic Speed Metal band from 1986 who later went on to become renowned thrash band Mandator. Also included are classic, unpublished band photos and brand new liner notes from original founding member Marcel Verdurmen.
Slippers have been playing together as a band for 23 years. Based in Long Beach, CA and rooted as an instrumental band. Over the last 6 years they have been working with different singers and rappers to deepen their catalog and expand their horizons. “MARS Vol2 “SAMMAS”, is a sequel or completion to the story in “Mars” Vol1. It is part spoken word, beat-poetry, sci-if, and a continuation of the Mars saga. It was put together to finish a stage show we have been working on for Mars. The music and words complete the story and serve as the soundtrack for the stage show. Keep tabs as hopefully they will be pulling off a full stage show production in the future…
