Overview

Rob Halford returned to the classic heavy metal style that he helped make famous on the focused Resurrection, an album that garnered critical acclaim for its spectacular metal focus. On the follow-up to this monumental release he continues down the same path, as his assembled backing band is quite possibly one of the best on the scene in the early '00s, and his vocals are as focused and exceptional as they have ever been. Songs such as "Betrayal" and "Wrath of God" highlight Crucible, an album where Rob's signature falsetto wail is distinct and picture-perfect, while bandmates Pat Lachman, Mike Chlasciak, Bobby Jarzombek, and Ray Riendeau have seemingly topped their magnificent work on Halford's previous outing. Crucible keeps things fresh, as Rob himself states that he dared not retread on themes abundant on Resurrection; as a result, this is yet another classic metal album for the next generation.

After the surprisingly solid "Resurrection" released in 2000, expectations were high on its follow-up. Fans in general were not disappointed, because this album is just as strong as its predecessor. The thing was that Halford-followers wanted him to re-join with Priest, so during that circumstance this album got a bit overlooked, which is sad as metal can hardly be played better than this. Drummer Bobby Jarzombek is just amazing, and the whole band is delivering topnotch performances. Another thing is that whenever Rob Halford is on his own his lyrics are so much better than they are when he is working together with his old fellows. Anyway, things were bound to change and about a year after this release, Halford was back in Priest. But do take a close look at this album, because it deserved so much better.
