In the frozen reaches of Canada, where the mountains meet the sea; a band of young men locked in steadfast tenacity have assembled to live out their worldly dreams. The dawn of 2014 has seen CRIMSON SHADOWS borne to international praise and repute by their unwavering delivery of boundary-crushing and genre-defying modern death and power metal.

Having appeared at the world stage of Wacken Open Air in Germany mid-2013, the band triumphantly laid claim to the title of International Wacken Battle Champions. After touring their native Canada coast to coast, CRIMSON SHADOWS are ready to take the world by the throat and deliver their brand of heroic metal that only the ice-clad lands of Canada can forge.
