...Top Five Special: Karyn Crisis (Crisis)
Today we hear from Karyn Crisis (Crisis)

Karyn Crisis' Top Five Albums of All Time!

The top 5 albums of all time is too difficult! So here's my list for top 5 albums that influenced my singing style in the early days:

5.  Jane's Addiction - "Nothing's Shocking":
(samples / buy cd)

4.  Cranes - "Self Non Self"
(samples / buy cd)

3. The Sugarcubes - "Life's Too Good"
(samples / buy cd)

2.  Cocteau Twins - "Treasure":
(samples / buy cd)

1.  Einstuerzende Neubauten - "Fuenf Auf Der Nach Oben Offenen Richterskala"
(samples / buy cd)

About Karyn Crisis: Karyn Crisis is the astounding vocalist of the LA metal band Crisis. "Trying to describe our sound is quite for hard us," she says, and she's correct. Essentially it's a metal band with equal doses of hardcore and thrash, sprinkled liberally with all kinds of elements from a plethora of styles. It all comes together to form a sound that is uniquely --- Crisis. The band is currently writing for the followup to 2004's "Like Sheep Led to Slaughter" which was a stellar collection of ground-breaking songs. They're on tour with Exodus and 3 Inches of Blood later this fall. Also check antiMusic later this week for Morley's interview with Karyn!
