Biography

Anchorage AK, United States (1994 – present)

36 Crazyfists are a / band from Anchorage, Alaska. Their sound is characterised by unique vocals and intelligent songwriting.

They were originally signed by Roadrunner Records. In 2006 they signed to the DRT Entertainment label for American distribution of “Rest Inside The Flames”, as Roadrunner US kept pushing the release date back. They remained on Roadrunner UK label, where they received good support in Europe. In July of 2007, the band signed to Ferret Records on a wordwide deal.

The band formed in December 1994 in Anchorage, Alaska. Initally playing Rapcore, their major label debut Bitterness the Star took the band in their current Metalcore direction. 36CF consists of four members, Brock Lindow (vocals), Steve Holt (guitar), Brett Makowski (bass) and Thomas Noonan (drums). After the release of their debut album Bitterness the Star in 2002, they began to tour the US with bands including Candiria, God Forbid, Chimaira, Diecast, and Hotwire.

After their US tour they went to Europe to begin the European Road Rage tour with Killswitch Engage and Five Pointe O. When this tour was over, the band took time off to write new material for their second album ‘A Snow Capped Romance’ which was released in 2004 and produced by James Wisner, who worked with Dashboard Confessional and Further Seems Forever.

The Band’s name comes from an old kung-fu movie featuring Jackie Chan. The title of the movie is called “Jackie Chan and the 36 Crazy Fists”.

Their album ‘Rest Inside The Flames’ Includes Jonah Jenkins of miltown, and Howard Jones and Tom Gomes of Killswitch Engage.

    For anyone who likes stoner rock or doom, Sheavy are a band from the 90s who have a slightly brock-esque vocal style and some cool riffs

    Bitterness The Star and their early/demo material is nu metal. Snow Capped... has also some slight alternative metal/nu metal vibe, but the material after that is metalcore.

    I hear a lot of american groove metal (LoG, Chimaira etc.) in their latest album. Not the best title, I know, but I reckon 'Alternative Metal with a post-hardcore edge' best describes Snow Capped Romance and RITF. I really don't hear all that much nu metal in anything after BTS.

    Their first few albums were nu-metal and their last two albums have been metalcore but I'm not sure what you would call RITF.

    Their first album, musically-speaking, is definitely very much in line with Deftones' first 2 albums (spesh Adrenaline) and I do certainly consider Adrenaline Nu Metal (albeit probably the best Nu Metal album of all time), but 36CF shed that pretty quickly imo. I'd call them a cross between Kilswitch and Glassjaw, with the odd hint of the 'tones here and there. Defo not a nu metal band! :)

    The more I listen to their older stuff, the more I realise what people are getting at when they describe them as nu metal. They're still wrong though, its just a mild Deftones influence IMO.

    Well, I didn't say that the screamo tag was apt... just that one should clearly be able to hear where it's coming from.

    I absolutely love 36CF, but this band is NOTHING even remotely close to screamo at all whatsoever. If anything, the vocals remind me of Daryl Palumbo's vocals in Glassjaw. Nu-metal could be true for Bitterness The Star, but the other albums are certainly in the vein of metalcore.

    That "nu metal" tag is actually quite apt, especially for their earlier work... and one should also clearly be able to see (or rather, hear) where that "screamo" tag is coming from. Get off your high horse(s).

    "Screamo" tag is total fucking bullshit" [2] Hope the new album will sound hopefully like Biterness The Star... still after those 11 years, they can't top that :/

    Shame these guys aren't coming back to Colchester / Norwich as per the tour they cancelled. They seem to be covering every other part of the UK!
