Crustacean - Insaniac
After the new GOD DETHRONED CD we get the next attack of Dutch extremists with CRUSTACEAN's "Insaniac". Thrash Metal, which is induced with some "Seasons In The Abyss" (SLAYER) quotes and a big portion of INFERNÄL MÄJESTY (at "None Shäll Defy"-times) is the law on "Insaniac".

Especially the Canadian heroes are a heavy influence of the guys. So the singer sounds very much like INFERNÄL MÄJESTY's Chris Bailey. And then the music: full of razor sharp riffs and lots of breaks the CD brings you the full pound and demands everything from you! Ecstatic headbanging is just as possible as intensive listening.

The album does not make it easy for the maniac, because variety is really big here, but who likes extreme stuff with depth that stays, then you get what you have sought after. Better get this album than the frighteningly weak YATTERING CD "Genocide". As the production also is more than ok, what are you still standing around? (Online June 21, 2003)
