Japanese metalcore band Crystal Lake started their time decades ago as a 90’s inspired metallic hardcore style band with a different vocalist, Kentaro Nishimura, fronting the band. Since those days Crystal Lake has gone on to become one of Japan’s biggest metalcore exports. The band has just released a re-recording of a whole bunch of tracks from Kentaro’s era with the band (he even features on a track The Passage). Though the production on this brings all those songs to an immensely modern feel, the old rawer sound is hard to forget or replicate.
But peeps who haven’t heard that era of Crystal Lake are in for a treat!
