Against The Odds is the latest full-length from Barcelona-based vintage thrash battalion CRISIX. Already out in Europe, the record will make its stateside debut next week via Listenable Records.
Decibel is currently streaming the record in full writing of the release, “A raging, unrelenting time that recalls the intensity of Slayer and their ilk, Against The Odds is vintage, yet still sounds fresh.”

Sporting a symbolic title that represents the band’s hard work, dedication, and friendship, CRISIX‘ fourth full-length studio output was self-produced at Axtudios in Spain and mastered by Jens Bogren (Arch Enemy, At The Gates, Bloodbath, Kreator et al) at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden. Straight from the raging kick off of “Get Out Of My Head,” the nine-track Against The Odds commands its listener’s attention with a devastating formula of power thrash with an often hardcore edge proving CRISIX‘ importance in today’s new generation of thrash. Thematically, the record draws from a wide range of subject matter including Ridley Scott’s Aliens in “Xenomorph Blood,” novelist George R. R. Martin’s fantasy worlds in “The North Remembers,” and Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball character in “Prince Of Saiyans.”
