Crusades - Parables

Crusades are atmosphere and heretic wit. Parables opens with a windswept soundscape and an acoustic dance that sticks around for 90 seconds setting the scene before they cut in with their trademark sound, World Burns to Death dramatic antitheism strapped to the gothier end of Alkaline Trio's pop-punk-with-the-horns-thrown-up runaway melodic croon. Catchy and soaring, capturing the campy horror-punk theatre of those one or two listenable Michael Graves-era Misfits songs but with a point beyond cash and empty shock.
