Artist: 36 Crazyfists
Title: “Rest Inside The Flames”
Label: DRT Entertainment
Release Date: 11/7/2006
Genre: Post Hardcore
Having moved on from Roadrunner Records the band 36 Crazyfists is a newly signed act to DRT Entertainment. This might have been a good move for the Post Hardcore meets Melodic Metalcore guys in 36 Crazyfists as they give us their third album “Rest Inside The Flames”. The release is a significant Metal punch to the teeth as they use the Hardcore vibe straight away, but in a slightly different move from some bands that blend in the Melodic aspect, 36CF are often using the both of them at the same time. I found this a great dynamic instead of the continual switching on and off of the styles. I felt that it worked so much that by the end of my listen I had wished that they had only used the clean vocal since it was so good. Songs like “On Any Given Night” are fantastic and serve to save the listener from the crop of Emo bands dished out and somehow popular. The drive and delivery of 36CF is bound to please those who are looking for some levels of anger in their music but also those who are seeking more melody than a lot of other bands are offering. There’s a lot of flavors on the album and they even offer some tribute to their homelands on the cut “Aurora”, a song which they said is about love and it’s magic that can be inspired by the magnificent Northern Lights. If that’s not off the beaten path from other heavy bands I don’t know what else is. There is also a lot of cool music on the release as well as far as time signatures and overall technical display.
