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.

Great Album By A Great Band

I have to say that this is my second favourite album by 36. (First being Snow-Capped Romance) I recommend this CD (or band) to anyone that is looking for something new, or that is just great music. These guys are great live. Brock never hesitates onstage. My favourite songs (on this album) are We Gave It Hell, Waiting On A War, and Absent Are The Saints. BUY NOW! BUY NOW!

Rest inside the flames??

Where is the album?!?!?

Different yet still good.

I think that this is probably my least favorite album by 36CF. I would still recommend it to anyone and I would say that it ddefinitely deserves the 5 star rating, but I just think that all of their other albums are just so much more amazing. My advice would be to check out their other stuff first before adding this to your music collection. All in all, it's some great stuff, as expected form a band like 36CF.
