During their short, late-’90s existence, Germany’s Encryption attemptedto combine the technique and aggression of death steel using the melodic inclinations and commercial potential of force metal. Unfortunately, nevertheless, overwhelmingly reviews that are positive couldn’t get over the band’s short-armed 3rd party distribution methods. Even so, vocalist Norbert Hartmann, guitarists Christian Klein and Manfred Herzog (afterwards changed by Stefan Muller), bassist Oliver Göß, and drummer Johannes Klein had been evidently onto something with 1996’s “The Cryptogram” demonstration and their two albums, Shrouded in Secret (1997) and Perishing Dark Light (2000), because many subsequent groupings (Into Eternity, Scar tissue Symmetry, etc.) proceeded to test out similar musical combos.
