Crustacean  


The Dutch band Crustacen was formed back in 1989 under the name Crystal Lake, with the name change taking place in the mid-nineties, along with a slight style change away from pure death metal towards Slayer-esque thrash (some of the members also play in a Slayer cover band). Insaniac, the band's most recent album, is a whirlwind of deathy thrash, or perhaps thrashy death, with Tom's vocals being more of the old-school thrash variety (bringing to mind the late Paul Baloff of Exodus at times, while the riffs are dirtier, more along the lines of traditional death metal, though clear thrash influences can be found here as well. The songs are short and to the point, with little variance in pace, but it's a fun ride. Insaniac is a strong thrash album, and Crustacean may well have a bright future in front of them.
