Crucifix 1984 EP

An unexpectedly strong release. CRUCIFIX may look like English punks, but they definitely have that American intensity. “Prejudice” and “Rise and Fall” are two songs played at thrash speed that are both powerful and distinctive. Real great stuff! “Steelcase Enclosure” is far less interesting, and Sothira’s wonderfully raspy vocals are mixed a bit too low, but this 7” stands spikes and shoulders above their 12” debut.
