I can remember hearing the original version of “Crucified” back in 90’s, and being drawn to it. It had this modern euro-tech dance vibe, along with eerily fascinating lyrics and the impression of a choir singing the chorus. I was instantly hooked, and apparently so were a lot of other Americans as the smash single spent a total of 14 weeks in the Top 20 of the Billboard Dance Singles Chart.
It was disappointing that their success didn’t continue with the followup singles in the States. Their unique appearance and sound definitely made them stand out from most other dance acts at the time. That was enough to keep them on my radar.
However, as time passed and the thrill of the band dissipated, I thought we had heard the last of them. But once I had heard of the reforming of the band and the revamping of their biggest hit, I was drawn back into the crucifixion. Upon further investigation, I found out that the band released a compilation album in Europe during the spring of 2013. This new compilation, titled Big Battle of Egos, features some older hits as well as four new tracks. If you are a fan of dance music, or simply a fan of the band, then this is definitely worth checking out.
