Crypta Announce Departure Of Guitarist Sonia Anubis


Brazilian death metal band Crypta have announced the looming departure of their guitarist Sonia Anubis. Speaking yesterday on social media, she commented of her exit:

“With a very heavy heart I want to announce my departure of CRYPTA — to fully commit to my band COBRA SPELL.

This was a very hard decision to make, and of course it was deliberated carefully.

From the very beginning of the band’s existence, I have fully committed myself to CRYPTA and gave my 100% true self. Being part of defining the concept and the sound of CRYPTA is something that is very special and dear to me. Back then, when we started making music together — I needed this sort of creative outlet. I experienced CRYPTA as a safe place to write my feelings away in the form of riffs and leads, like a process of catharsis. I am thankful and proud to have contributed to the history of this band and being respected for my personality and style. 🎸

Through the course of time, my priorities and musical dreams have been evolving and growing apart from the band’s goals. Changes are part of life, and as human-beings it’s important to evolve — sometimes this means we need to end a cycle. I have started to listen more to myself, and what I want to do with my life as an act of self-care. ❤️

Therefor I make the choice to part ways and invest my energy on my current priority — which is my band COBRA SPELL, I will solely commit myself 100% to my own band and my solo endeavours. 🐍🎸

I know this will affect my biggest supporters out there, and I am very sorry if this somehow disappoints you. Though, please know that music IS and ALWAYS will be my biggest passion. Making this choice will allow me to reach my dreams as I envision them. Music and guitar is my life/love and I will never stop playing and sharing my journey with you all! ❤️😍🥰

Something to look up to: the new COBRA SPELL EP ‘Anthems Of The Night’ has just been released! Check it out! 🤘Along to another new music video to be published on April 7th, in which you will see me in shred action! 🎸 Ready for some new music?! 🔥

A big thanks to CRYPTA and everyone who was involved to growing the band while I was there, and for being there when I mostly needed it! 🔥”

Crypta also commented via social media on her decision to leave, offering:

“With heavy hearts we announce that Sonia is parting ways with CRYPTA! It was her decision and we understand and respect it, so both sides will now follow new and different paths.

We all feel sad to see her go but at the same time feel very thankful for all the amazing and beautiful things we built together so far. Sonia had a unique importance from the beginning of the band until now and her essence and contribution to the band will always be a special part of CRYPTA.

Our split was friendly and respectful, we will keep in touch and we definitely wish nothing but the best of luck for her, for her band Cobra Spell and for all her future ventures.

We still have some video material recorded with Sonia and they will soon be released as a memory of the legacy we built together.

We ask all of you kind fans to respect this sensitive moment for all of us and show some love only on the comments!

Thank you Sonia!

**Our future activities and plans from Crypta will not be affected and all the shows and appointments schedule will still run as announced. More info soon!”
