CRUCIFIER (USA/PA)


Dating to September 1990, Pennsylvania Black Metal band CRUCIFIER, centred on Cazz Grant, has issued a whole array of demos starting with 'Humans Are Such Easy Prey' in 1991. The opening CRUCIFIER formation saw Grant on vocals and drums with Ira Redden and Jeff Anderson handling guitar. A projected demo, to be entitled 'The Unholy Trinity', was "planned, attempted and unfortunately aborted". The line-up shifted shape in January 1991 with the departure of Anderson and the induction of guitarist Dan Kamp and bassist Chris Miller. Redden then exited, paving the way for replacement Mike Machette and in this formation CRUCIFIER recorded the 'Humans Are Such Easy Prey' session. However, in November of 1991 both Machette and Miller opted out. CRUCIFIER cut their second demo 'Crown Of Thorns', then enrolled new bassist Dan Keaton. The band laid down material for the 'Unparalleled Majesty' EP, through Polish label Pagan Productions, but dismissed Keaton in September 1992. Gary Gandy stepped in as substitute. Following completion of the 'By Disgrace Of God' sessions Kamp made his exit to join INCANTATION. This defection put CRUCIFIER into a state of flux, resulting in a fluid line-up which would include at various stages the likes of Joe Ceresini, Mike Pandorf of SNAG, Joel Prange of WITCHERY, Craig Ross from RAPID VIOLENCE and ex-FACE FIRST man Chris DePetro. In the Spring of 1994 CRUCIFIER drafted Mark Neto from British band CRUENTUS on bass guitar. Although now just a duo of Grant and Neto, the band, bringing back Dan Kamp and Chris DePetro, put in live work. In May the three song 'Powerless Against' promotional session was recorded with the aid of Nick "The Marauder" Mertaugh on guitar. Additional vocals would be supplied by the GRAND BELIAL'S KEY, THOKK and ANCIENT credited Vlad Luciferian and Jose Infernal of 'Sargatanas' zine. Virginia's Sinistrari Records issued 'Powerless Against', after which Neto departed.
