Album Review

There was a time that within the realm of heavy metal when most groups were categorized by one of two styles: extreme metal or melodic metal. But rarely, if ever, did the two meet. However, by the early 21st century, it's hard to find a thriving metal band that doesn't incorporate elements of each approach into their metallic caldron, especially in the case of Kenai, AK based quartet 36 Crazyfists. On their fourth major-label release (and first for the Ferret Music label), 2008's Tide and Its Takers, it would be understandable to fool a newcomer of the band into believing there are two lead singers in the band. Case in point: "The Black Harlow World," which seamlessly alternates between melodic crooning/tranquil music and hardcore screaming/raging metal. This is an approach that 36 Crazyfists uses throughout Tide, as evidenced by such delightful little ditties as the album opening "The All Night Lights" and "Waiting on a War," the group has created an album that appears poised for some serious crossover appeal.

Hail the Fists!

36 Crazyfists have a very original sound and it really allows them to stand out in their genre. No small thanks to Brock Lindow, the Fists' vocalist. His voice/scream has a great sound to it and keeps me coming back for more. There are some songs i could do without, (the album as a whole gets a 3.5/5) but other songs are great. Song by song review: The All Night Lights: 5/5- great opener. Love the lyric "with knives in hand, we stab at the sands of time to turn back and unwind" it just appeals to me somehow We Gave it Hell: 5/5 Best song on the album. Lots of energy, gets me headbanging. The Back Harlow Road: 3.5/5 not bad, not good. it's a gray area on this album because the song is good at times but not so good at other times. Clear the Coast: 2.75/5 uhh...not so great. it's not terrible, but this is a lower point on the album. Waiting On a War: 4/5 This is a good song after Clear the Coast because it keeps my interest in the album going. Only a Year or So...3.5/5 it would be a 3/5, but it's got the occasional part that i really like (mainly that beginning part in the chorus) and the lyrics are nice. Absent Are the Saints : 4.5/5 finally some energetic stuff. it seemed to lull there for a while. Powerful screaming. Vast and Vague: 4/5 decent. feeds off the energy from Absent Are the Saints. the songs go together well. When Distance is the Closest Reminder: 3.5/5 it's got its moments. Northern November: 3/5 a slower, sadder mood. this sounds like the end of the album, until we get to... The Tide and Its Takers: 5/5 this came outta nowhere. brilliant, though. great use of the guitar, it's a great finish. The Album has its ups and downs, but 36 Crazyfists is nevertheless a great band worth a listen for all you metalheads out there. MUST-GET: We Gave it Hell
