Mix it together and you have CA.
The concept behind Cryptic Age came from music students Jenny Green and Hallam Smith in 2010, thanks to our similar musical tastes. After spending a term or so jamming between lectures, we decided to get a band together, and with Bassist Tom and drummer Alex, have started to form a unique melodic, yet satisfyingly heavy and original blend of different styles.
