    AloPunk, I'd say L57NT pretty much nailed it, but I'd also add that d-beat is a less specific term than crust. simply put, all crust incorporates d-beat, but not all d-beat is crust.

    Although it should be mentioned that there is still a number of bands nowadays that support and revive the original British crust sounds from 80s

    Initially crust meant the British punk scene that combined sound of early 80s anarcho-punk and UK hardcore bands with heavy metal (Motorhead, Venom, Slayer, etc). Nevertheless even early british crust bands sound very different from each other -- from crushing metallic slowness of Axegrinder to almost pure Discharge/scandicore-worship of ENT and Doom. So 'crust' was more about scene than genre. During the 90s many crust bands incorporated d-beat increasingly until the scene was completely merged with the whole scandicore/d-beat stuff.
