Earth Crisis - _Slither_
(Victory Records, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (8 out of 10)
Everyone's favorite hardcore/metal vegans Earth Crisis come into 2000 with one of the most volatile and extremely heavy-ass records. While not as bomb-dropping as labelmates Snapcase's release with _Designs for Automotion_, Earth Crisis return to their roots and original label (after a one album stint with Roadrunner) and the results couldn't have been more exciting. Managing to stir up enough emotion and deafening cries of aggression, the band storms through a sonic assault of heavy vibes and mosh pit worthy material -- and the music of _Slither_ is also chock-full of strong harmonies to boot. Earth Crisis still rock and it's nice to see that they aren't afraid to turns things up. This is a great record that is full of gems, most notably the title track, "Provoke", "Agress" and "Arc of Descent".
