Mix Korn and Glassjaw and you get 36 Crazyfists one of the newest bands to emerge from the kings of nu-metal, Roadrunner Records. Unlike some other Roadrunner bands like ill nino and Chimaira, 36 Crazyfist actually differentiate themselves from the pack. 

Sure the music is the basic nu-metal formula with pretty typical rhythms and an abundance of massively distorted guitars but 36 Crazyfists have a more melodic side they are not afraid to show and it really gives the music a nice contrast from the usual “nu-metal” pack. The vocals have a bit of a “freak on a leash” feel to them, which if you are a fan of Korn will give you an immediate reason to like these guys. 

The bottom line, this band is a different enough to merit attention and nu-metal fans should like what they hear. If you aren’t into nu-metal then it’s not likely these guys will change your mind, then again, their mix of melody and power might open some eyes, so I won’t rule that out. I’m not a huge nu-metal fan but found myself enjoying what I heard here, so if it can open my jaded ears it must have something going for it!

Posted by Bryan:
36 crazyfists is one of the most creative bands to come out of the nu metal movement. And I got ahold of their new album "a snow capped romance" and it's incredible, still nu metal, still basic formula but so much more together and so brilliant.


Posted by BullyGutt:
36 crazyfists are my fave band and have been for a very long time. If you thinkthat Brock Lindow sounds anything at all like John Davis from Korn you have a big problem. Korn are one of the worst bands i have ever heard and to say this insults even me...get your act together J Davis couldn't sing well to save his life. 36CRAZYFISTS ARE THE BEST F*CKING BAND TO HAVE EVER GRACED THE METAL SCENE. if you like this, cheak out the stuff from earlier releases such as 10 track 'in the skin' and there new album is out on 20th Jan 2004 'a snow capped romance'


Posted by alissuh:

i might go see them with Candiria(crazy stuff). I never really looked at them as nu-metal, more like Snapcase kinda stuff. But if they are nu-metal then they are still good stuff.
