With Get This Right Records about to release the final tracks recorded by defunct CRUCIFIED via their posthumous Dead Of Sleep 7″, one of the four anthems the EP bears has been set loose upon the public via underground music community, Stereokiller.
CRUCIFIED‘s volatile delivery of thrash and hardcore with infectious pick-up parts and monstrous breakdowns draws elements of Ringworm, All Out War, Catharsis, Gehenna and Merauder together, and saw the band make an instant impact on the hardcore scene. Their 2008 debut was later released as a split with No Truce on Escapist Records, followed by a split with Steel Nation in 2009 on Double Or Nothing Records who also released their Coldest Winter LP in 2010. In May of 2011, CRUCIFIED entered the studio for one last session, yet decided to call it a day before the material saw release. Now, three years after their demise, these seemingly lost tracks will be available for the first time as the Dead Of Sleep EP. Recorded, engineered, mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden Studios in Palo Alto, California, this concise and ferocious EP perfectly displays CRUCIFIED‘s slick and lethal style to both previous fans and new, and is a testament of their brief but relevant lifespan as a band.
