Crisix: From Blue To Black
Catalonian thrashers fail to beat out a memorable tune
When an album’s on Listenable Records, how bad can it be? The answer is ‘not bad at all’.
Barcelona thrashers Crisix have created an eminently listenable (excuse the pun) third album. It takes a long time to gather all the facets required to make a truly great band, and Crisix definitely have the riff chops in place; their excellent guitarwork often comes across like Artillery, which is quite the compliment. The quintet are also supremely tight, rendering their aggressive, speed-focused racket in an unholy union.
