Profile A christian mix of early Extreme and Trixter is pretty much what I get from these guys, with above-average production. The songs have some kick to ’em, too, something that seemed to be missing from alot of Christian metal in the late 80s/early 90s. The EP starts with the heaviest rocker “Hey Child’, and it’s not long before the catchy choruses and harmonies kick in on tracks like “Faith (Table of Life)” and “Disguise”.

The closing track, “Never Surrender”, is their most overtly commercial, with a simple yet infectious chorus that gets stuck in your head. Some tracks sound like a heavier Noiseworks, and whilst there are times when the band sound a little like 20/20 Blind, Fear Not, Novella and Cry Mercy but they have their own sound overall…

    These guys are awesome. I can’t believe I’ve never heard of them! And I’m extremely disappointed that I can’t find this CD anywhere. Does anybody know where I can obtain a copy?

      Hey Big Al,
      I know this is a bit after the event, but I just saw your post.
      Thanks for the comment. I have CDs available. There is “In your Faith” and the follow up “Crypto Acuity”. There was a third album that unfortunately never got mixed. I am currently working with a new band featuring three of the original members of Crucial Kick. We have a new album coming out in a few months. You can contact me crucial777@hotmail.com.

      Regards

      Rob M
