36 Crazyfists – A Snow Capped Romance – CD Review

The snowy darkness of the Northwestern U.S. has a blister of aggression called 36 Crazyfists. This Alaskan outfit’s 2004 opus, “A Snow Capped Romance” [Roadrunner Records], is a Melodic Aggro Metal whirlwind of sheer, brilliant rage.

36 Crazyfists is the perfect aggregate of melodic agility and pure brutality. Dynamic arrangements propel forward harsh, melodious guitars that smash against progressive, furious rhythms. Clean yells, soft cries, and shrieking growls interplay in vibrant, sublime intensity.

So much for the sophomore jinx….

The very best of these absolutely killer cuts includes the addictively primal groove of “Installing The Catheter,” the surreal, eclectic edge of “Skin And Atmosphere,” the harsh glimmer of “Kenai,” “With Nothing Underneath,” “Bloodwork,” and the burning “Cure Eclipse.” 36 Crazyfists is on like a bomb.

In summary, 36 Crazyfists has become one of the very best Aggro bands around. This release will easily be one of the BEST of 2004. Slipknot may lose their crown as the Kings Of Aggro…. Stay savage. Farewell.

Keep the faith, and the AGGRESSION. War.
