Formed: 1994
From: Anchorage, AK, United States
Last Known Status: Active


36 Crazyfists, signed to Roadrunner records in 2002, debuted with their album titled "Bitterness the Star'" and did 2004's critically acclaimed "A Snow Capped Romance". They have their own unique sound, standing out most in vocalist Broc Lindow's voice. They recorded their debut and dedicated one of the songs to their original bass player who lost his life in a car accident.

36 Crazyfists may have suffered a loss, but that hasn't stop them from making music. They combine hard driven gutiars comparable to Killswitch Engage and vocals that are something of their own. 36 Crazyfists are showing the world that Alaska's not only known for eskimos, but also kick ass metal. 36 Crazyfists are definately a band to watch over the years. Who knows where they'll take their unique sound, comparable to Killswitch Engage, next?

MTV2 Headbangers Ball: The Revenge Details

MTV2 and Roadrunner Records have announced the release of the third installment in the successful series – MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL: THE REVENGE. The low priced, double-disc is due in stores on April 11, 2006.

On the heels of the Gold certification of the first installment, MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL, VOLUME 1 and the success with MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL, VOLUME 2, MTV2 and Roadrunner Records once again set out to gather the very best in Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. The result is more than 2 1/2 hours of music on 2 CDs: disc one represents the strongest tracks from today's biggest rock bands, and disc two brings together the strongest up-and-comers from the underground rock scene.

In addition to the genre-defining anthems that represent the best of the show, there are enough rare and unreleased tracks to satisfy tastemaker metal fans as well. Packed with a total of 38 hard-charging tracks, this collection has 7 exclusive offerings. They include the Terry Date mix of Slipknot's "Before I Forget", and the live recording of Killswitch Engage's "A Bid Farewell", which both see their first CD release on this compilation. Other exclusives are brand new tracks from Hatebreed and Walls Of Jericho, both of which were written especially for this release (Hatebreed's lead vocalist, Jamey Jasta, is the host of the Headbangers Ball program on MTV2). A video for the Hatebreed track, entitled "To The Threshold", will air on video channels in March. A side project of Jasta's, Kingdom of Sorrow (which also includes members of Down, Crowbar and Seemless), also throws a brand new track into the ring. The compilation beat Dragonforce and 36 Crazyfists' record releases to the punch with fresh new tracks from these up-and-comers.

36 Crazyfists Finish Mixing New Album

36 CRAZYFISTS guitarist Steve Holt has posted the following message on the group's official web site:

"The mixing phase [of the third 36 album, 'Rest Inside the Flames'] is coming to a close and Andy [Sneap, mixer] has done it again, this shit sounds amazing. This also means my time in the U.K. is coming to a close — for now anyway. Right when I got settled in, it is time to move on, damn it all.

"There is still some tweaks left to do and then mastering and this thing will be rock ready. The album cover is coming together and tours are in the works, so as soon as we have anything concrete I shall let you all know.

"I've had a blast consuming myself in and making this record over the last 7 months and can't wait to share it with you all.

"We have a show in Portland on the 24th of February at Rock N Roll Pizza with a gaggle of good bands to rock out some of the new material. If you're in the area head down for beers and metal.

"Full day of flying tomorrow. Oh boy!"

"Rest Inside the Flames" was produced by Sal Villanueva, who has previously worked with THURSDAY, TAKING BACK SUNDAY and VISION OF DISORDER, among others. A late spring release via Roadrunner Records is expected.

36 Crazyfists Confirmed For SOTU 2006

MTV.com is reporting that Alaska-bred metallers 36 CRAZYFISTS have been confirmed for this summer's Sounds of the Underground tour, set to take place in August. The band will be touring in support of their third album, "Rest Inside the Flame", which is currently being recorded at Big Blue Meenie Studios in Jersey City, New Jersey with producer Sal Villanueva (THURSDAY, TAKING BACK SUNDAY, VISION OF DISORDER). 10 songs will appear on the CD, including "Midnight Swim", "I'll Go Until My Heart Stops", "Between the Anchor and the Air", "Aurora" and the first single, "On Any Given Night". The album, which will be mixed later in the month by Andy Sneap (NEVERMORE, EXODUS, ARCH ENEMY) at Backstage Productions in Derbyshire, England, will feature three guest spots: former ONLY LIVING WITNESS and MILTOWN singer Jonah Jenkins, ex-KILLSWITCH ENGAGE drummer Tom Gomes and current KILLSWITCH frontman Howard Jones, the latter who sings on "Elysium". A late April/early May release via Roadrunner Records is expected.

With regards to thew new album's musical direction, 36 CRAZYFISTS frontman Brock Lindow told MTV.com, "This record's definitely heavier than the last two and has an older-school feel to it — like an old-school rawness. We wrote the record thinking of the live show. We didn't want to have any laid-back moments on it. We're wanted to keep things moving and going, so it's a speedy record — it's a little heavier, a little faster."

36 Crazyfists Give Updates From The Studio

36 CRAZYFISTS have posted the following updates from the studio while recording their new album:

"Portland, Oregon
Happy Halloween All! The leaves are turning, rain is here, Football is heating up midway through the season and Hockey is in full swing. Ah, what a great time of year. Today marks the official beginning of pre-production for us. Our producer Sal Villanueva flew in last night from New Jersey so we figured wed kick this thing off with a trip to the bar for a few drinks and a little shoptalk. I got to say, Sal is definitely the man for the job. We all hit it off great and Im positive that Sal is going to pull the best out of us and knows what kind of quality record were looking to do. We have been writing hard all summer and have filtered through and trashed 2 albums worth of material. Leaving only the best of the best, we have assembled our sickest set of songs by far, that are very 36, yet a large leap forward from the last album. And with Sal on board now, I have never been so stoked to record an album. This is going to destroy. We already have click tracks that Thomas has been playing to and we got these songs fairly tight, but that is what pre-production is for we have to make these songs an air tight, impenetrable wall of molten metal. This we will accomplish. Today will consist of playing through these songs all day long and letting Sal get a feel for them as we begin to dissect and reassemble these bad boys. More to come..."
