Maple Metal Record's breakthrough artist CRIMSON SUN will join AMBERIAN DAWN's 10th Anniversary Tour, performing 10 shows in Europe in Feb. The 2017 Tour will include stops in the UK, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. Spanish symphonic metallers DIABULUS IN MUSICA will be direct support to Amberian Dawn on the Tour.
Hailing from Kotka, Finland, female-fronted quintet 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 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!”
