Epic Canadian death power metallers and 2013 International Battle for Wacken winners CRIMSON SHADOWS of Toronto have announced that they will enter the studio next month to record their follow up to 2013’s EP ‘Sails of Destiny’ with Jonathan Lefrançois and Jee Gagnon at Silverwing Studios in Montreal. The record will be mixed by Eyal Levi of Audiohammer Studios.


As the winners of the 2013 International Battle for Wacken Open Air Festival in Germany, Crimson Shadows is fresh off a triumphant year and started 2014 strong with a recent first run in the United States with thrash band BATTLECROSS. Known for a Canadian twist on Epic Power European metal, the band is also set to make an announcement that they are signing to an international record label who will release the new record this summer.


“Our new songs show a progression of the band as we have been through a lot over the past few years. With a full length and an EP behind us we look forward to this new record and working with Jo and Jee at SilverWing Studios to make these songs truly come to life, and have Eyal provide the finishing touches, ” says Drummer, Cory Hofing. “I’m really looking forward to spending a couple weeks in beautiful Montreal to hammer out these new tracks and show everyone what we’ve been up to since coming back and winning the metal battle in Wacken. ”
Lefrançois and Gagnon of Montreal based Silverwing Studios (Agonist, Ex-Deo, Blackguard, Erimha) will handle the production, and Levi (Daath, White Chapel, Firewind, Battlecross) of Sanford, FL’s famed Audiohammer Studios, will mix the record.


A Summer 2014 release is planned.


“Crimson Shadows fuse pure metal and death metal in an entirely new way, with flavor, passion and a steel fire burning in their bellies. I love the way they combine the high flying guitarmonies of pure metal with the grit of pure death metal.” -Two Guys Metal Review


“After the impressive debut “Glory On The Battlefield” Canada’s CRIMSON SHADOWS return with an powerful (EP) sure to satisfy fans of Melodic high speed Death Metal. This iron borne Toronto outfit continues their death quest for the glory of the throne. For once it is experienced; fans will surely spout the words of praise, power, and glory, while swilling the ale of their ancestors.”-Metal Temple
