CRUX was founded by bass player Roman Kříbek (also in DENET) and guitar player Petr “Blackosh“ Hošek (also in ROOT) in Czechoslovakia sometime between 1988-89. Later drummer René ”Evil“ Kostelník joined the band and in December 1991, about a year after the fall of the Communist regime, the three recorded the 7 track demo REV SMRTI. The demo became a perfect, audible example of the pressure years of Communistic oppression had built up inside the young Czech’s. REV SMRTI is a total outburst of dark creativity and sheer aggression, a Thrashing Blackness roaring along with ROOT’s magnificient Zjeveni, the fantastic Ritual by MASTERS HAMMER and BATHORY’s unparalleled The Return! The promotion of this tape was made in the usual underground fashion through tape trading, local club gigging and in reviews in small, obscure zine’s. Still the band never really took off to the next level, and the main reason for this was that ROOT took more and more of Blackosh’s time, until he decided to quit CRUX, and Evil soon followed him to ROOT, leaving Roman on his own. Time passed and in 2000 the very obscure and sought after demo was re-released by LEVIATHAN RECORDS, who used a demo copy for this purpose. The versions of REV SMRTI that I Hate now proudly release is from the original master tape, needless to say resulting in a superior sound compared to the 2000 re-release. In addition the CD comes with 4 bonus tracks, extensive biography, lots of exclusive pictures and lyrics for the songs, all in a 20 page booklet. The I Hate re-release of Rev Smrti will once and for all cement the name of CRUX in the line of famous Czech Metal acts such as ROOT, TÖRR and MASTERS HAMMER!
