Editorial Reviews

If forced to describe Alaskan heavy metal unit 36 Crazyfists in just a single word, you might want to go with persistent. "Collisions and Castaways", the band's forthcoming second set for Ferret Music, was written and recorded between October 2009 and May 2010 and is scheduled for release July 27, 2010. It follows on the heels of last year's DVD outing, "Underneath a Northern Sky", and is the band's second straight effort to feature guitarist Steve Holt in the producer's chair and Andy Sneap handling the final mix.

I would say it probably seems to be a cliché to talk about how a band has evolved from every album they've done. In the case of 36 Crazyfists, they've managed to keep it going by changing things up while keeping it consistent. For Collisions And Castaways, they've kept it somewhat safe: guitarist Steve Holt once again handling production duties, and Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Chimaira, Exodus) mixing and mastering (his 4th time for the band in their 5 album career). They even invited friend Adam Jackson of Twelve Tribes to do guest vocals like he had done on the previous record. That's where keeping it safe ends however as they've taken the groundwork they had previously laid out for The Tide And It's Takers, and totally went for broke in making some of the darkest and most aggressive material they've ever done. I'm not kidding. Opening track "In The Midnights" starts off "Battery"-style with acoustic guitars before erupting into full blown chaos, and that's just an example. One great track (and I'm sure fans of Snow Capped Romance will love it) is "Waterhaul II," which musically even starts off with an eerie soundscape that permeated the first before exploding into familiar territory with razorsharp guitars and bass, blistering drumwork, and nerve-rattling vocals. It's a proper sequel to the original "Waterhaul" track (not a rehash by any means) that I'm sure will bring fans back to when they first heard it and being amazed as I was. This is a great album that once again proves the band is getting better and better all the time, and I look forward to more great music from this band in the years to come.

Once again, 36 Crazyfists has managed to make an album that is beautifully blended with melodic metal and pure heavy metal. This band has seen maturity over the years. If you listen to their very first EP which was titled "Boss Buckle" and listen to collisions and castways, you wouldn't know it is the same band, other than of course the very distinct vocals of Brock Lindow.

I have always loved the fact that 36 crazyfists has embraced the fact that they are proud alaskans with every release, this album is no different. This surely is one of the bands best releases, it stands beside "A Snow Capped Romance" as the bands best release for me. I have been a fan of this band for 7 years and have all their albums, take it from me, you will not regret purchasing this album.

36 Crazyfists is a band with its own distinctive rule and whether people think it should be that way or not is irrelevant... they have a unique and compelling sound that has rocked its solid fan base for more than a decade.

Collisions and Castaways was worth the wait in that it follows on the heels of their breakthrough album "The Tide And Its Takers", but adds a metal twist to it that is very much in your face during the album's 45 minutes running time. Guitarist Steve Holt was once again in the producer's chair and I can't wait to see how the band approaches the new songs live, with all the different textures and double-guitar layering going on on the new album.

Cannot say enough about this band I've been following since the very beginning... I like to say they are the best unknown band out there.

The Collisions and Castaways CD Really great. It's a bit harder than the last couple of albums, which could be taken as a good or a bad thing, but for me it works. The bass really stands out to me, I just want to listen to this album really loud. I can feed off of the energy, which this album has a lot of.

Bottom line, this album is great, any 36 Crazyfists fan should love this album, and any metalcore fans will be pleased.

I have been behind this band ever since I discovered them back during the Roadrunner band boom of the early 2000's. Many of those bands didn't survive, but these guys were able to define themselves as musicians by creating a formula that was familiar enough, but also different enough to make them stand out from the plethora of bands who all sounded like one another. Over the years, the Crazyfists have evolved with their music, and once again, they did this in a way that gave them a distinctiveness which showed off their authenticity and tight musicianship. Lately though, I am beginning to notice a pattern. A sort of safety zone that they have been inhabiting. And while this isn't a bad thing, it can become bad depending on what these guys choose to do with their next release.

"Collisions and Castaways" is a great album, no doubt. I am beginning to develop a sense of repetition though. While I did enjoy this album thoroughly, it sounds (in my opinion) almost like "A Snow Capped Romance", "Rest Inside The Flames" and "The Tide and Its Takers" had an threesome together without the use of a condom (maybe out of impulse... maybe even out of drunken incoherence, who really knows?) -- and "Collisions and Castaways" is the resulted offspring from this event. This is by no means BAD. It is good music. But it goes stale quickly, if you know what I mean?

Are the Crazyfists running dry on ideas these days? I really don't know and I hope not because I would like to see these guys stick around for the rest of the 2010s. I believe that, with this release, they have come to a crossroad in their career. They have a decision to make, a very critical one. They need to ask themselves, "where do we go from here?
