Album Notes

The fourth album from Cruciform Injection, "Epilogue" steps beyond Industrial dance music and enters a soundscape of analog basslines, layered vocals, and driving beats. All nine original songs were constructed during 2003, and selected from over 30 songs. Fronted by Micah Skaritka and with new perspectives on sequencing were provided by Brendon 7 and Kassi, and production assistance from Oliver Tarancweski (Evils Toy, T.O.Y., and Re/Act) helps polish the album. Final mastering by Guido Fricke of Haujobb completes the electronic sound. On Negative Gain Productions.

This 3 member elektro band has toured the U.S. since 1993 with bands such as Icon of Coil, E-Craft, Terrorfakt, Razed in Black, Decoded Feedback, Cut Rate Box, Attrition, God Module, Inertia, Psyche, S.V.D., Filament 38, Electric Hellfire Club, Dubok, Cesium 137, The Azoic, & Epsilon Minus to name a few.

Recently acquiring Negativegain Productions, Cruciform Injection is cultivating the next Elektro assault on America!

Upchuck Undergrind

Right up there in quality with some of the top line acts...
Cruciform Injection avoids the poppy quality of a lot of EBM and electro-industrial on the market and goes instead for explorations of darker realms. Not that most E-I is happy but this is dark as opposed to just moody. However, instead of going for the acid heaviness of most of the grimmer electro (think Wumpscut, Front Line Assembly, etc.), Cruciform Injection's "Epilogue" goes more for a cleaner sound. The edginess comes from the goa stylishness that permeates the music. Psy acid drives the atmosphere, rather than distortion, though there is a bit of this. The vocals sound like they went through a little filtering, but not to the point that some of those other aforementioned acts filter theirs. These are more understandable while still flat and intimidating. Cruciform Injection is right up there in quality with some of the top line acts, such as you might encounter on Metropolis Records, one of the leading purveyors. In fact, I believe this band's distro goes through Metropolis, so that should give you an idea of the quality and the kind of electro doings to be expected, even though CI has managed to pull off a bit of a unique personality, an accomplishment in a genre whose bands tend to blur together at times.

"Epilogue" CD
Negative Gain Productions

Album number four from this crew brings us more and better crushing rhythms, mixed with dark and melodic synth lines all tied together by a stong set of vocal chords that have just a touch of Thirwell-esque style. A tough and sometimes gravelly vocalist chants about religion, war for oil and other problems with the human existence. The band's strength in production quality is present, as is typical for them, in this release.

The Cruciform Injection sound borrows a lot from classic EBM but still has a very modern boot stomper feel to it. They even use trance like sounds and production without getting watered down like most others that attempt such a mixture.

This album includes a bonus of several remixed tracks tweaked by Pzychobitch, E-craft, Neuroactive and Filament 38 (the notes on this promo say Haujobb will be added to the final version). Each takes a track either from Epilogue or from a previous album and gives it their own twist.

One question remains...Is this album an epilogue to human existence itself or is it simply a way to wrap-up the previous three releases and point us toward the future? Either way, if Cruciform Injection is around, I'll keep listening.

This trio makes up this remarkable band that rules the dancefloors, worldwide!
Cruciform Injection-Epilogue The newest from this Chicago-based band. First of all, I just booked this band at my event and they pulled in a big crowd. 200 plus people showed up at my event, cause of this band. This band was designed to get you to move and move and move and tear that dansefloor up till it no longer exists and looks like it went through armaggedon. Lead singer, Micah Skaritka-programming, vocals and samples, Brendan7-live guitar and programming and Kassi-live keyboards and programming. This trio makes up this remarkable band that rules the dancefloors, worldwide! Word is out that Cruciform Injection is here to stay and is going to turn the world upside down and it will forever not be the same! Track one- Reducer, very moving Peter Murphyish backing sounds with a hard, moving break beat with a lazer gun shooting back at it, nuff sed. Track three- dark house, a very haunting track with symphonic sounds in the background and awesome vocals! Micah sings, this darkened house, just that line alone is dark and mysterious and so many channels are set on his voice to really make it stand out! Quite a catchy tune, I must say! Track four- Vacant Bodies, another super catchy danse track. I can see this track be used for a movie score for a good zombie flick. It's dark and creepy and really gets under your skin. Micah sings, bodies with almost an alien voice and never lets us forget! This track would be good for a new sequel to Invasion of the Body Snatchers or something! The rest of this album rules, you can dance to every one of the tracks, not one is disappointing! So check out the new Cruciform Injection, take them in and enjoy the ride! 4stars!

Some of the best, dark electro I have heard in awhile.
This is some of the best dark electro music I have heard in awhile. There are a couple things that I am not a fan of, silly distorted vocals and mindless electro. Not only does Cruciform Injection avoid this, their music is a prime example of how good dark electro can sound when done right. The songs are well done, melodic, listenable or danceable, or both. Stand out tracks include...well..the whole album, but to be specific, "Dark House", "120 over 80", "Black Gold", and "Reducer". Fans of Leaether Strip, Wumpscut, or fans of good,dark electro music should pick this one up, you won't be disappointed. Highly Recommended!


From Chicago’s underground comes the fourth and most ominous release from Crucif
From Chicago’s underground comes the fourth and most ominous release from Micah, Kassi, Brendon7 and Ryan aka Cruciform Injection. This new CD boasts 10 new tracks and 5 remixes, all ten original songs were constructed during 2003, and selected from over 30 songs. New perspectives on sequencing were provided by Brendon7 and Kassi, with production assistance from Oliver Tarancweski (Evils Toy, T.O.Y., Yavin 4 and Re/Act) polishing the album and final mastering by Guido Fricke of Haujobb completes the impressive electronic sound found on this disc.

Compared to their three previous releases this CD shows a almost veteran maturity and gradual evolutionary direction that a lot of other acts in this scene are not experiencing themselves. Layered vocals, great sequencing even better samples all come together perfectly with the driving bass and synth lines that are sure to get you moving. While not every track is dancefloor material this CD is filled to the rim with well crafted electro – industrial. Those who enjoy Suicide Commando, Emergence or PsyclonNine will most defiantly love this LP. Standout tracks are… “Reducer”,“120 over 80”, “Dark House”, “Paralysis”, “In Silence”, “Sacrilege” and “Black Gold”. Then we have some even more impressive remixes by the likes of Haujobb, Pzychobitch, E-Craft and labelmate Filament 38. All of them give new life and form to the preceding track, but perhaps the most impressive of all these remixes is “Vacant Bodies the Resurerection Mix” by Filament 38. I did not pick Vacant Bodies as standout track because the remix is just far more superior. I have played the crap out of it in clubs all over SF and it gets the dance floor packed and I always get asked “who is this” by at least 10 people after playing it. Cruciform Injection have been fortunate enough to share stages with some serious favorites in our scene, like Razed in Black, Assemblage 23, Cesium 137, The Azoic and Psyche and I’m sure they will share a stage with many more great acts in the future. A great job all around, Negative Gain Records is quickly becoming a label to watch closely with such creative acts like Cruciform Injection but also Emergence, Filament 38 Yavin 4 and Alaska Highway. My deepest gratitude to all involve with this CD, I was very impressed and I highly recommend it.

Sick Amoung The Pure

Cruciform Injection combine cold, Industrial detachment with warm synths, access
Cruciform Injection combine cold, Industrial detachment with warm synths, accessible bass lines and catchy samples. At the moment you want to cower from the disorienting cold heat that Cruciform Injection gives off like frost in the tropics, you feelyourself being sucked in by the almost honey warmth of their keyboard delivery and production; you feel yourself opening your arms wide and lifting up your face for a loving kiss that might just kill you. It’s a contrast that works.

With the third track, “Dark House,” the album really starts to pick up, with soprano synth bleeps layered over steady one-three drum-machine beats. “Vacant Bodies” gets dirtier while still remaining dance-accessible. Its background static is laid over the stuttering, infectious drumbeat that seems to wind around your neck like an intoxicating noose; try and keep your body from moving in time. “In Silence” starts out dark and sparse, with minimal keys and lone vocals, then breaks into an intense synth riff that, combined with the beat that follows on its heels and the weathered, hollow vocal bloom-up, recalls a harder Wolfsheim. Each song has incredible between tracks and the production is flawless. With so many layers to contend with, the production on an album like Epilogue could end in disaster. Not only are all the sounds as nicely separated as if by magic or a good bra, but all the layers breathe in such a way that each instrument, riff and movement has a meaningful place within each song.
