Saviours, hot off of the release of its EP, have summoned up the demons once again to command an eight-track effigy of evil with CRUCIFIRE. No frills, unabashed, real deal metal played by five guys who exhibit incredible chops, a wet-dream inducing triple guitar assault, and a sadistic songwriting prowess that taps veins of so many of metal, hardcore, and punk rock’s greatest is what you’ll find delivered in diabolical droves here. Mastodon meets Thin Lizzy at a Motorhead barbecue where Slayer and Venom are playing dominoes and High on Fire and Iron Maiden are flipping burgers while Metallica and Megadeth play chicken in the pool is just some abridged examples of Saviours’ chugging downtuned brilliance on “Christ Hunt” and the mesmerizing musical passages which adorn “Heathen Eye”. Crossing over in the most delightful of ways, CRUCIFIRE is a triumphant album brimming with punk metallic pride which needs to be cranked at 11 at all times. Horns up high for this one folks, it truly deserves the accolades.
