CREST OF DARKNESS

HISTORY

CREST OF DARKNESS was formed in the mid-nineties by frontman Ingar Amlien, at a time when his then-band CONCEPTION was at the peak of its popularity.  Unlike CONCEPTION, which tended more towards the Progressive side of Power Metal, CREST OF DARKNESS allowed Amlien to explore his interest in Vampirism and Satanic ideology, which, combined with his passion for sonic brutality, created a much more extreme sound that has grown in power and intensity since the band’s inception.

In 2013 the Norwegian masters unleashed their most complete, extreme and intense album. Titled “In the Presence of Death”, the ten-track album amply demonstrated that CREST OF DARKNESS are indeed at the top of their game both in terms of writing and musicianship.  Combining elements from both Black and Death Metal, it is, in fact, an album that has been described by many as the very essence of Extreme Metal, something that the 2015 release of the EP “Evil Messiah” more than amply demonstrates. Around two decades, two EPs and six full-length albums have placed CREST OF DARKNESS firmly at the top of the Extreme Metal genre
