The Band

We are a folk metal band mixing dynamic female vocals, heavy guitars and traditional Celtic tunes all with a progressive twist.


Cryptic Age was formed in 2010 and soon developed its own folk-metal style while slowly including progressive elements into their music. The epic soprano vocals of front woman Jenny Green combined with the progressive folk-metal elements create a highly individual sound which culminated in the debut EP 'Homeland', released in May 2011. Cryptic Age released their first full-length album 'Sounds of Infinity' in May 2012 which combines more progressive and darker elements into the already-eclectic music of the band. It was also a far more ambitious project using various special guests including a choir, instrumentalists and voice actors


In no particular order: Eluveitie, Arkona, Symphony X, Kamelot, Nightwish, Traditional Folk music, various soundtracks, Opeth, Equilibrium, In Flames, Dream Theater, Firewind, Immortal, Amorphis, Blind Guardian, Dark Tranquility, Sonata Arctica, Rhapsody of Fire, Ensiferum, Dragonland etc.
