Criminal: Fear Itself

Criminal is probably best known for its consistently strong musical output that combines death, thrash, and hardcore. Started in 1991, the band saw a great deal of success in its first decade, selling albums in high numbers and supporting legendary bands like Kreator, Sepultra, Slayer, Exodus, and Motörhead. Criminal also supported Metallica at a gig in Chile that drew 55,000 fans. Even though the band has been quiet for a while, the band decided to relocate to the UK and start things up again with a half-Chilean, half-British line-up.

With this album, the band once again demonstrates that it has the chops fans of this style of music want. Although I enjoyed the album from start to finish, I found the last third to be excellent. Starting with "Animals to Gods," the last few tracks are impressive and strong and show the band at its best. I hope you'll check out Criminal, especially if you missed them the first time around.
