Album Notes

Reviewed by Alex Figgis
Then there were three... Ted the drummer, known also for his Indian recorder, acoustic, lead, rhythm and bass guitar skills: Aaron, the lead, rhythm, slide and bass player, prone to dabble in the occasional vocal appearance; and Luke, the versatile vocalist. Produced by Bill Metoyer, this 15 track opus boasts some of the best material since, Pathenogenic Ocular Dissonance'. The skill all three band members demonstrate is stunning, no doubt due in part to Bill giving free reign whilst encouraging and enhancing what Tourniquet do well: hardcore progressive music at its best. Ted's classical influence is once again encouraged to come to the fore, perhaps more so than on previous outings adding to both musical diversity and intensity. Lyrically, "Crawl To China' - the band's fifth full length Studio project to date - is jam packed full of double entendres. witty analogies and clever arrangements; from the dense sounding '"Going. Going...Gone", the light hearted pop/rock of "Bats" to the bizarre progressive sounds of the title track and black humour of "The Tell Tale Heart". This is indeed the much-anticipated gem from Christendom's finest progressive metal pioneers.

Not my favourite Tourniquet album...but great remastering!
I'm a huge fan of this Wisconsinite Christian Metal act and have been ever since purchasing their first album "Stop The Bleeding" the very first day I saw it in my local record store over 20 years ago! The musicians in this band are some of the most talented in the world and thier exceptional creativity sets them above so many other bands in the hard rock and metal world. In fact, they really are like no other band in either genre. "Crawl To China" was their 1997 offering and although I will always prefer the sound they achieved on their first three albums the best, this is still a special release to be certain and sounds even better with the superb remastering and new cover art. A+
