Crisis
Like Sheep Led To Slaughter (The End Records)

By: Mike SOS

The groundbreaking NYC outfit Crisis have relocated to L.A., and have released a new album, the 12-track Like Sheep Led To Slaughter. Never afraid to experiment within the extreme metal genre, the band's hybrid metalcore sound features heaping amounts of stoner rock, ambient hardcore, and straight-up NYC noisecore. Imagine Neurosis, Helmet, and Bloodlet sharing a triple bill, and that sums up the sonic assault Crisis unleashes. Add in Karyn Crisis, the vocal juggernaut that she is, whose personal stamp of shrills, screams, yells, and growls are virtually incomparable, and the return of this underground band is a triumphant one. Although an open mind is very necessary to appreciate the artsy slant Crisis spins on the metalcore movement, the undeniable fact that this unique outfit may take a few listens to absorb, but once you do, you'll understand and appreciate the fragmented fracas that much more.
