"SALVATION OF INNOCENTS"
"SALVATION OF INNOCENTS" is the seventh studio release from one of New York's
finest. EARTH CRISIS has been destroying the underground Metal & Hardcore scene for
years now. With one listen to this release you can hear why they have such a huge and
loyal fan base. The band tends to lean more towards the Hardcore side, especially in their
earlier days, but the Metal elements are all present through out. The have that killer
crossover style that a lot of bands from the New York scene seem to be able to pull off.
There are some really killer grooved out passages with some thick and chunky Hardcore
breakdowns and change ups. The guitars is where I hear most of the Metal shining
through. There is that thick crunchy and grooved out guitar sound that you find in a lot of
Thrash Metal bands, but then they pour on the thick thunderous bass which gives it that
Hardcore vibe. The vocals tend to go the same route as the music by adding in some
melodic Metal vocals with some angry and aggressive Hardcore screams and chants. If
you have never heard of EARTH CRISIS before, then where the hell have you been, but
if you already know them then you are going to love this album. An absolute must for fans
of other killer Metal / Hardcore bands from the New York area like MADBALL,
BIOHAZARD, AGNOSTIC FRONT, SICK OF IT ALL, CRO-MAGS, SHEER
TERROR & WARZONE. Just get this album already! It's EARTH CRISIS and that's
really all that needs to be said!!!
