The past couple of years, the Dutch band Cromm Cruac have releases three fine demos. Now, finally, they got a chance to release their complex death metal on CD. No matter how good cassette demos may be, you always tend to play CDs more. At least I tend to.

Cromm Cruac play pretty complex music with quite freaky drumming, but their drummer is not the only one who knows how to play his instrument. Vocalist Herman Hofman provides the tracks with a really dark grunt. Boasting cool tracks like "Human Instinct", "Allied States of Consciousness" and "23:10 Timeless", "Senecio" is a fine album.
