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 December of 2016 the Norwegian masters unleashed their seventh, and most complete, extreme and intense album to date. Titled “Welcome the Dead”, the nine-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, “Welcome the Dead” does not shy away from breaking the mold, adding tranquil moments to the sheer metal brutality, to make an album that is varied and interesting, and has an appeal that appeals not only to Black and Death Metal fans, but to fans of Metal generally.  Over two decades of refining their art, two EPs and seven full-length albums have placed CREST OF DARKNESS firmly at the top of the Extreme Metal genre
