4.0 excellentLambda | September 21st 14

Of the Moonchild records that I've heard so far, this one seems the most overtly eclectic. "9x9" is a Led Zeppelin inspired off-kilter rock track; the only way to tell it is a Moonchild song is Mike Patton's incredible, discordant screaming. "Almadel," the album opener, sounds like a Moonchild take on Masada, and features some interesting harmonized saxophone and vocal melodies. And then there are, of course, the jazzy grindcore tracks, like "Shapeshifting" and "Hobgoblin," which are just as heavy as ever. Overall, The Crucible is a slightly uneven, but nonetheless enjoyable, trip into the mad world of Moonchild. 4.0
