Cryptic Languages are an instrumental doom band from San Diego, active since 2012.
Cryptic Languages began sometime in 2012 after Arguelles had left a previous band and joined with Davis and Zafar once they needed a third member. From there the band had performed mostly instrumental psychedelic doom (Though Facebook photos indicate cases of the band performing as a two-piece or even with vocals). Their earliest known show according to Facebook was on 8 February 2013 alongside Mirden, Leather Nun and Old Man Wizard.
From there the band would play shows around the San Diego area and share the stage with the likes of Forgotten Gods, Beira and Thrones to name a few. Eventually the band would release their debut studio release in Razorleaf on 8 November 2014. After a change in lineups with Jason Nunez joining on drums they got back to playing shows such as the Tijuana Rumble Fest in Mexico.
