A Snow-Capped Romance

Posted on February 12, 2008

Don’t take our word for it… here is what PLANET LOUD had to say about the new 36 CRAZYFISTS album… “The debut album from these Portland, Oregan based Alaskans was a blistering displaying of emo/metal but it received mixed reactions from í¢ä‰åñthe kidsí¢ä‰åŒ. Most, like this listener, fell in love with the caustic beauty contained in the grooves however some found vocalist Brocks warbling vocals to be a little hard to cope with. So, two years down the line and, fans of the band will be pleased to know that the band are still as stunning as ever while those of you put off by Brock’s vocals will be pleased to know he’s using a cleaner style this time around. Couple the two together along with a new, more positive outlook on life and you have yourselves a great record. Straight from the off when A Snow Capped Romance kicks off with the searing At The End Of August, a track already featured on the MTV2 Headbangers Ball Compilation, you’re pulled in by the beauty of this record. It’s the depth of emotion contained in the bands sound which has really been exposed courtesy of a cracking job done by producer James Wisner. As the passion and emotion reveals itself throughout the duration of this album, the magic hands of Andy Sneap have worked their wonders on the aggressive element of the bands sound and helped create a wall of sound that is emotion-soaked yet fury-driven. This time around the band experiment a little further with A Song To The Fishermen being a 90 second tribute to Brock’s childhood growing up in Alaska. In fact, the title of the album is a tribute to their roots as the band remember their upbringing in Alaska. All I can say is that whatever it is they put in the water down there, it has produced one of the finest, emotionally-charged records I’ve heard in a long time.” The amazing new 36 Crazyfists album ‘A Snow-Capped Romance’ is released on Monday (March 15th) and is available for around 퉌£11.99 from HMV, Virgin (look out for the 퉌£2 off voucher in Kerrang, issue 13/3), MVC, Music Zone plus your local official ‘Roadrage’ store.
