The Queens metal troupe Cristalix blaze through its five-track release with vigorous guitars a la Slipknot and a multi-layered keyboard assault that sounds straight out of Sweden. This punishing quintet display a knack for creating dynamic landscapes that change from mild mannered piano tinklings to full-out nu metal rage on “Inevitable”. Mixing the melodic elements of bands like Taproot with harder edged metallic nuances utilized by bands like In Flames and Mudvyane, this outfit unleashes an aptitude for concocting aggressive anthems like “Blast Thru” that allow you to sing along and bang your head to, making metal fans utterly satisfied along the way.
