I purchased this cd because it stated it was for sepultura fans. I was very surpise, this cd is really good. Not a wimp song on the disc. If you are soft and weak this is not for you.
Crewed By The Damned is the debut album from New Jersey-based metal pirates Swashbuckle, featuring an arsenal of intense, unrelenting thrash metal tunes reminiscent of vintage Anthrax & Exodus; and a collection of authentic, acoustic-based pirate shanties highlighted by catchy guitar melodies & creative percussion. Not the type of diverse styles you’d hear on a typical metal album – but then again, Swashbuckle are not your typical metal band. Forged upon the seven seas, Swashbuckle’s unique brand of ’In Yar Face’ metal is set to take the metal community by storm.

kinda old school thrash. Like the songs and the grimey feel. Recommended.
…but this band signals a comeback in 80’s thrash and like they say on one of their songs, they are not messing around. another band that deals in “street metal” is Demiricous. I hope that more “street metal” bands come out and I don’t care what underground labels thay sign to. by the way, the bands with the weird names make the most impact.
These guys are amazing, bringing old school thrash to the table, in the vein of bands like Witchery, Testament and Sepultura. I’m glad to see many bands to make really good music and Rumpelstilskin Grinder is not the exception. Recommended!!! Also check out: Witchery’s “Don’t fear the reaper”.
The other night I was walking back to my dorm room and across the hall from me I heard the thumping double bass and shredding guitar work of what I now know was the track “Grab a shovel, We’ve got bodies to bury” I had to investigate what this was… As fate would have it the only other metal head on our entire campus lives right across the hall from me. He told me the band was called Rumplestiltskin Grinder.. after I stopped laughing histarically I made him put on the whole cd… I was impressed enough to go out the next day and buy the damn thing. I like all brands of metal, but my true passion is mid 80’s thrash. Slayer, Megadeth, Testament, Anthrax and Exodus are my favorites bands. Rumpelstilskin Grinder clearly is influenced by these bands but they throw in a touch of Obituary/Mastodon to create a sound that is all their own. I struggle to accept alot of bands that come out today. Weeding through alot of the crap (cough cough As I Lay Dying, couch) I feel it is hard to find good metal. If you are a fan of vintage thrash or the band Mastodon you will like this alot.. To be totally honest I think this is what Mastodon tried to do and just fell short of doing.
