Crimson Altar

Official Site

A really nice goth metal band from the UK. I got my first exposure when they were included on one of Terrorizer's 'Fear Candy' compilations for unsigned bands, and I was struck both by their high quality and interesting sound: unlike many other goth metal bands, Crimson Altar actually take the time to be heavy, with obvious Black Sabbath influence worn proudly on their velvet sleeve. One band that definitely deserves more exposure in a world of tired Nightwish clones and Theatre of Tragedy wannabes. Great female vocals, and a full four downloads up at their myspace.
