5.0 out of 5 stars The Cruxshadows have done it again! September 8, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Before I begin my review I should point out that Amazon's preview for Avalanche is incorrect - it is currently playing a remix of Quicksilver. Avalanche is, however, its own song and is not a remix of Quicksilver.

Quicksilver was a surprise at first: it comes off as more aggressive and a little angrier than one might usually expect from The Cruxshadows. Also absent is the defining, enchanting violin solo that I've come to associate with some of The Cruxshadows' best: Foreverlast, Return, Sophia, and Birthday (among others). But Quicksilver grew on me with repeated listens: now I think of it as Marilyn, My Bitterness's angsty cousin, but with more inspiring and hope-filled lyrics.

However, the star of this single is Avalanche. Avalanche is The Cruxshadows at their best - it's deep, ethereal, and epic, and I can't stop listening to it. It is utterly haunting and stands as proof that despite the addition of new band members and the departure of some old familiar ones, The Cruxshadows have not lost their talent for creating songs that invite you into the darkness before revealing the light hidden within.

I'll be first in line for a follow-up album!

5.0 out of 5 stars More of what I expect. December 8, 2009
By SheWolf
Format:Audio CD
The Cruxshadows again brings great guitar work, amazing imagery, and a uplifting message with their latest work Quicksilver. The title song has a great beat and fantastic violin and guitar work, Roland, based on La Chanson de Roland, is a slower song and thought-provoking, Avalanche, a good song to bring you through the dark times.

Music that a 60 year old grandmother, a 30-something metal head, and a 7 year old girl can all agree on can be hard to find. This transcends generation and genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Touching, Reflective, Amazing. January 19, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a fan for years, so my review is hardly unbiased, but I wouldn't give a good review if I didn't thoroughly enjoy it. Quicksilver is fantastic, and if you listen closely you can hear references to some of their previous singles and top songs within the lyrics for Quicksilver. The remixes of Quicksilver were very well done and a pleasure to listen to, as is the rest of this EP.
Roland is a touching song praising a warrior for his courage and sacrifice in the face of his own imminent demise and urging us not to forget him, to sing a song in his honor.
Avalanche wasn't my favorite, (That was Roland, by far), but it's a good song with a strong beat and it would be very easy to dance to for anyone with a sense for music.

Overall I would recommend this to any Cruxshadows fans and urge them to buy it (especially in light of the recent loss of their equipment and tour money to theft).
Fans of darkwave music, dance music, music with a message and meaning inside of it... You should totally buy this as well. It is well worth the cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cruxshadows single October 13, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This single includes five songs. Three versions of Quicksilver and two other new songs. All seem to fit well into the sound CXS have created for themselves. I highly recommend for any dark wave or ebm fan.
