In 2001, the release of “Disco Flesh Warp 99” allowed French indus metallers PUNISH YOURSELF to go from “live band” to “cult band”. The brutal yet polished sound of their sophomore album rose Hell in the French industrial underground back then, as it holds the band’s first dance floor hits which established PUNISH YOURSELF as a serious competitor to ATARI TEENAGE RIOT, to name but one. Eight years later, this album still sounds incredibly powerful, thanks to a top-notch production. As a bonus, this reissue includes the band’s very first and long out-of-print “Feuer Tanz System” album, originally released in 1998, and no less than eleven previously unreleased or rare tracks. “Crypt 1996-2002” is the absolute key to the inception of this incontrovertible leader of the French industrial scene.
