36 Crazyfists: A Snow Capped Romance

Sound — 10
36CF are the baddest, most brilliant band on Earth. Their music speaks to people in a way I can't describe in words. Pounding riffs, crunchy breakdowns, fantastic drumming and epic choruses - this really does have every thing you need in an album. I've been lucky enough to meet them all and they are all proper cool guys. Every song is different, compared to some bands who just chug along with a different notes here and there. Every lyric means something and every notes is played with purpose. Fantastic band, fantastic songs, breathtaking album. Buy it or lose out on the real deal.

In every 36 Crazyfists song, there is a moment where you wait for some mesmerizing lyric to turn your life around and frontman Brock Lindow never disappoints. His words are from the depths of his soul and he spits them out with both ferocity and anguish. My favourite lyric has to be from Skin And Atmosphere "But you're not here, you're nowhere near at all, just skin and atmsophere." His lyrics are so complex and diverse, they're almost bordering on riddles. Possibly my favourite lyricist at the moment, he somehow manages to find something in common with the listener and share his pain. It's just brilliant, I really can't pimp his words up enough.

Overall Impression — 10
Compared to most of the turgid, same-old metal that is emerging at the moment, 36 Crazyfists stand tall as something special and awe inspiring. Their rise to super stardom will come and it won't be a day too soon. From "At The End Of August" to the haunting "Waterhaul," the third installment of the 36 Crazyfists story (they had a debut before Bitterness The Star called In The Skin, check it out) is definately the most mature and diverse one yet. The album sleeve itself is beautiful, just like everything else about this album. The perfect album, bring on Rest Inside The Flame.

    You just said pwn. A word that doesn't exist. Why make fun of an abbreviated form of "awesome"? It is basically, the same thing. Derp. On a better note! This band is one of the most amazing out there!!!!!
