CRIMSON SUN play kick-ass modern melodic metal with an ‘in your face attitude’.
Canadian label Maple Metal Records released their highly praised debut album 'Towards the Light', and 'The Border' EP last year.
'Towards the Light' was picked by Metal Storm Webzine as one of the "10 Best Albums of Symphonic Metal" in 2015. ‘Towards the Light’ was recorded at Deep Noise Studios, Kouvola, Fi with Saku Moilanen, and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe, Epica, Primal Fear) in Denmark. The album cover art is by renowned Serbian artist Slobicus Doomicus.
Jacob Hansen has shared his comments on ‘Towards the Light’: “I really enjoyed the songs and the band. To me, this band could easily become ‘the Next Big Thing’! The song structures and overall sound is catchy, as well as being heavy. This combination could mean big business!”
CRIMSON SUN was founded in 2001 by guitarist Joni Junnila, and the band went through various member changes before settling down with the quintet that recorded their debut album, & 4 track EP. CRIMSON SUN are endorsed by Ibanez Guitars & Basses, and Tama Drums.
