CRUCIFIRE
CRUCIFIRE
Unblessed Unto Hatred
(self-financed)
10:11min

Some of you might (should!) remember ENCABULOS from Australia who released a brilliant MCD entitled "Abandoning The Flesh", offering devastatingly massive heavy Death Metal. In my opinion they succeeded in transferring the atmosphere and impact of early BOLT THROWER and UNLEASHED to the present in terms of production, riffing and speed (lots of blastbeats!!!). Some time after that release the band dissolved but fortunately Steven and Adam, accompanied by RANDOM VIOLENCE singer Darkfiend, resurfaced under the name CRUCIFIRE. The heaviness of ENCABULOS is still present but the result on this three - track tape is is nothing but pure, dark, blasphemic, fast and untamed Death Metal in the best way possible. Darkfiend's vocalisations sound like they have been recorded in a subterranean cathedral. The riffing is mostly fast with a slight thrashing note, shredding onwards. The merciless drum barrage may remind some people to early KRISIUN due to the speed but these Australians sound much more organic and varied with some effective massive doublebass parts thrown in to create absolute devastation. So in case you feel unmoved by the flawless, almost sterile technicality of modern acts like HATE ETERNAL and crave for malignant obscurity as it is present in IMPRECATION, early VITAL REMAINS, INCANTATION, MORPHEUS DESCENDS, REPUGNANT (to name a newer band) this is most certainly for you. Instead of showing (mislead) skills by constantly changing metrum and uninspired fret - wanking going nowhere CRUCIFIRE craft powerful and memorable structures. By chosing the good old tape with a simple b/w - xerox sleeve they have won anyway, hehe! According to Steven these three incantations may get released on 7" soon so I propose you contact the band via mail to get informed about future plans. The demo is sold for 5 US $ / € if I am correct but ask first! And now act, fukkit!!! Contact Steven: P.O. Box 1648, Geelong VIC, Australia 3220, email: crucifire@hotmail.com. Contact Darkfiend: P.O. Box 77, Doncaster VIC, Australia 3108, email: thedark.1@lycos.com
