36 Crazyfists


Like a bear native to the Alaskan tundra, 36 Crazyfists have emerged from a four-year recording hibernation to sign a worldwide deal with Spinefarm Records. The label welcomes the Alaska-originated band – celebrating its 20th anniversary this year – to its formidable and expanding roster, boasting the best in hard rock and heavy metal. The new album, Time and Trauma, is due out in February 2015.

Episode Summary: ALLOY co-host,Ben Abbott, went and caught a show in Portland, Or and got an Interview with Brock Lindow of 36 Crazyfists! Some of the band being from Oregon, we were stoked that Ben got the interview. Brock was as cool as a guy could be, including the total fanboy co-interviewer that went with Ben to the show. We are big 36 Crazyfists fans and we’re pumped Brock was so cool.

15 years ago a metal band, who would later gain worldwide fame, was born from Alaska’s harsh tundra. Today, with four successful albums under their belt and a vast number of tours, 36 Crazyfists decided it was time to release their first DVD. Underneath A Northern Sky, a very appropriately named release, focuses beautiful Alaskan imagery. Music aside, this DVD is a testament to the band’s love of their homeland and fans.

Throughout my high school years I listened to a few bands religiously. 36 Crazyfists was one of these; my favorite albums being Bitterness The Star and A Snow Capped Romance. To this day I remain a huge fan of the band and am still excited when I hear about new material On July 27, 2010 36 Crazyfists released their fifth album Collisions And Castaways. As soon as I got a copy I was listening to it.
