      Wowzer! These guys are the best thing out there at the moment. Lealea is an amazing vocalist and all members of the band are seriously talented musicians - I mean, listen to that guitar solo! There is nobody better out there as far as I am concerned. This is them LIVE - Imagine what they are like on stage! I've seen them; if you ever get the chance to it is well worth it. This is one band where you should believe the hype. Best thing since skills on toast. If they don't make it big, well, I don't know what the world is coming to!!!!

      The ability to take you by surprise, regarding their guitar work, is arguably the reason Crucibles didn't last and aren't as popular as they should be. But the obvious passion for tricky guitar riffs and melodic hooks are refreshing in a world seemingly longing for 'edgy' music. They wear their hearts on their instruments and it's a real shame they are no longer with us.
