CROSS UP YOURS - "Holy Shit"
Self released 2012


Genre: Black/Death Metal
Country: USA
Time: 12:57
Website: http://crossupyours.com

One man project/band from the US. First thing that came to mind was that itís gonna be another USBM sounding band like XASTHUR, CREBAIN or LEVIATHAN, yet it was a total surprise as CROSS UP YOURS has very little in common with that style. Itís also interesting that the man behind that is our Polish homeboy, who was at some point a member of EPITOME. But thatís ancient history, hidden behind the fog. Weíre more interested in what emerged out of that fog, the debut material in shape of a four song EP.

Except for the first track which is a minute and a half long bible verses recital accompanied by a windowsill and some other ambient sounds the actual music is quite brutal and very diverse. The very first sounds of the title song immediately leave you no doubt what style CROSS UP YOURS represents. Whatís blasting out of the speakers is a twisted Black/Death Metal, bringing early BELPHEGOR to mind, however at the same time keyboards transpiring here and there bring it more into LIMBONIC ART direction, which is symphonic and very dark. Anyways, the important thing is that despite many tempo changes and all that style variations it still makes sense. All of those three songs show that Mr. Greg isnít short on ideas. One time he throws in a nice solo, another time he plays around with the vocal department.

Bottom line is that ďHoly ShitĒ shows very well what potential CROSS UP YOURS has. We can hear that the wings havenít been fully spread yet and this project will still show what itís capable of (meaning it will blow us away the proper way). Itís definitely set on the right path.
