36 Crazyfists are an Alaskan alternative metalcore band formed in the early '90s with more than a handful of full-length releases to date and some EPs on the side. They're a fairly successful band and have been given some mainstream exposure in the media here in North America, with some material being promoted on Roadrunner compilations and MTV airtime.

This is just a place for fellow metalheads to discuss anything 36 Crazyfists - favorite songs or albums, changes in sound, band members... whatever.

Now for some good music from my two favorite 36CF albums:

If I had a nickel for every time I could laugh at your taste in music, I'd have enough money to buy a Tardis so I could go back in time and kill your mother so you'd never be born.

But yes, I do enjoy a few of their albums.

You misinterpreted, I was stuttering while saying what, (not laughing at your musical taste) because I'm astonished that you, kvlty mckvltystein likes a melodic metalcore band from Alaska. It just seems so out of your styles. I assume you liked them from your metalcore days.

I also said, I don't mind them, and what's wrong with my musical taste? >:{

I was just living up to my handle, nothing personal.

I don't think it's too surprising I like them to be honest. I may favor black metal but I'm also drawn by a lot of non-metal genres, most of which are far less extreme than metalcore.

I haven't actually listen to them a lot, so maybe I'll check something out.

I listened to these guys once upon a time and enjoyed their debut, but I sort of fell away from them after only their second release (which I thought wasn't too bad, but was a bit of a let down, imo).

Hmm, this thread compelled me to check these guys out, and indeed they are quite good.
However I am a bit surprised you like them as stylistically they do seem to be very close to regular melodic metalcore (with some unique elements).

Do you only like the first three albums or their entire discog? Since I heard on the last two they dropped some of the stuff that made them unique.
Even Rest Inside The Flames seems more "typical" than the two before it on first listen tbh. Which is not necessarily a problem.

And then of course there's Asking Alexandria... For the record, nobody ever asked Alexandria anything ever again.

Only the first three, really, but The Tide is still far from a bad album in my opinion. They just seemed too focus on trying too hard to be a melodic metalcore band instead of displaying their traditional mix of post-hardcore. And while I don't really care for melodic metalcore, for some reason these guys have always managed to keep me entertained. Well, up until Collisions, anyway. As I Lay Dying do the same to a much lesser extent, and I can also appreciate bits and pieces of Heaven Shall Burn, but that's pretty much it.

I quite like this band but their clean singing can be truely atrocious sometimes. Rest inside the flames was the first I heard and it's still my favorite.
