Norwegian Black Metallers CREST OF DARKNESS have released a lyric video for the track “From the Dead” taken from their sixth full-length album “In the Presence of Death”, which was released last year on My Kingdom Music. The video can be seen on the band’s YouTube channel below:
CREST OF DARKNESS is the dark offspring of frontman and bassist Ingar Amlien, who formed the band in the mid-nineties at a time when the popularity of his then-band CONCEPTION was at its height. Amlien had always wanted to more fully explore his interest in Vampirism and Satanic ideology, and to do this he realised that he would have to move away from the Progressive side of Power Metal, and CREST of DARKNESS is the vehicle he chose. Using his passion for sonic brutality to create an intense form of Black Metal that makes use of Death and Epic Metal and even a hint of the Gothic, Amlien has, over the years, been able to develop a sound that is unmistakably CRESTOF DARKNESS in its intensity.
Aside from preparing CREST OF DARKNESS to hit the stage again, Amlien is also working on new material for the band’s next album, and has hinted that there will be some significant news coming from the CREST OF DARKNESS CAMP very soon. He is also currently working on a new album with ROQUEFIRE, the Hard Rock band for which he plays bass.
