crustacean greed
Artist: Crustacean
Title: Greed, Tyranny & Sodomy
Genre: Thrash / Death Metal
Release Date: 20th June 2011
Label: Xtreem Music


Album Review

Dutch band CRUSTACEAN have been forging metal since 1989, two albums, some line-up changes, they’re here to thrash out ‘Greed, Tyranny & Sodomy’. Though marked as Death Metal band as well as Thrash metal one, they’ve shed off the Death metal for this album that is parted from its predecessors by eight years.

The sound of this album is a marriage of SLAYER, with its approach to music, to RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, regarding the vocal delivery of socio-political commentary lyrics. Their vocalist Tom Paulusse is just fiercer and more straightforward than Tom Araya, more in a fashion of Zack de la Rocha in majority of the songs, in others it’s on a fence between these two examples of approaches. Of course having played in SLAYER cover band as well, the Thrash titans are more prominent or noticeable. Which of course makes it not an album to be exhorted as an original one, but it’s more than enjoyable nevertheless if you want to let off steam with some fierce head banging and listen to a catalyst for your accumulated rage and anger.

The chugging is mostly unrelenting and takes you right through like on a ride, the thrash formula followed faithfully except through some breaks of different metal streaks here and there, as for example in ‘The Fallacy You Call Faith’ and the last ‘Greed, Tyranny & Sodomy’ where some melodic marks are made before the song fully kicks in and out. A good, well composed and executed album though nothing to get super excited about, they need to kill some influences first and come out of the hard shell as themselves if they want to strive for more in terms of achievement for their own name. However, they seem to enjoy what they’re doing tremendously and the verve of their enthusiasm sweeps you along and lets you enjoy it, regardless of its “spawn of/spin of” feeling.
