i dno about cryptopsy usign melodic minor, every solo of them that i know (wich is quite alot, allot more than youll find online) are all harmonic minor, with a few notes from pure minor, to compensate a few part, but thats just 3 or 4 notes in a few solos jon made...

unless you talk about the later cryptopsy, once was not album, i havent looked into that, so they might use some melodic on that album.
