Habeas Corpus - _Crucified_
by: Adrian Bromley (2 out of 5)
Veteran California thrash/death metal act Habeas Corpus (they formed in 1989) have released numerous demos over the years, though this is the first time I received something from them. The five-song demo tape starts off with a lengthy sample for Steven Spielberg's "Saving Private Ryan" (does he know about this?) and kicks right into this blistering rush of thrashing metal. Solid production and deep growls keep this sucker afloat, though the music is a bit cliche. The band are good musicians, I mean, they have been around longer than most bands, so they should be, but I don't really see much else than that. No new ground is really covered with Crucified. You'd think that by now the band would have something to offer us. I guess this would have been real big back in 1989 when that whole scene was still vibrant. Things didn't catch on then and I'm not sure it will now. Who knows? I may be wrong.
