Crusadist is an extreme metal band from the Chicago area, U.S. The debut album is called The Unholy Grail and it officially releases on the 29th of November 2019, but you can listen to the complete album online now.
Below is the official information about the band and album.
Crusadist is a Chicago-based Metal band, Forged in the Fires of Death and Thrash. The Unholy Grail is the band's debut album, which will be self-released on November 29.
Formed in July of 2017, by Founding members Shaun Albro, Aaron Nobles and Kevin Ariel. In February of 2018, Drummer Jason Rak joined the group. After countless auditions and failed attempts to find a second guitarist, they decided to record a 3-song demo to showcase the style and to find the missing piece. The recording took place at Iron Hand Audio in Chicago Illinois and was recorded by Dan Klein. Guitarist Luke Sever agreed to help with the recording and went on to write and record the solos on the demo. Once the demo was finished, it was obvious that the search was over.
Now that everything was falling into place, the band started accepting show offers and began to book shows both locally and regionally. Performing in the surrounding states and opening for national and international acts such as Exmortus, Hatchet, Micawber, The Absence, Depths of Hatred, Kalmah, Vried, Homewrecker, Empyrean Throne, Nile, Terrorizer and Vital Remains. During this time the band continued to write material with plans to record a full length album.
In March of 2019, Crusadist entered Belle City Sound in Racine Wisconsin to begin recording their debut album The Unholy Grail with producer/engineer Chris Djuricic (Origin, Jungle Rot, November's Doom, Gorgasm, Against The Plagues). Mixing and Mastering duties were then handled by Jeramie Kling ( The Absence, Venom Inc.) and Taylor Nordberg (The Absence, Soilwork) of Smoke and Mirrors Productions in Spring Hills Florida. The cover art was created by Swedish Artist Par Olofsson (Immolation, Exodus, Unleashed, Aborted, Braindrill, Against The Plagues).
The Unholy Grail is set to be released on November 29, 2019 (Black Friday) and will be available on all major digital distributors, as well as on physical format in digipaks. The digipak layout was designed by Ryan Kasparian of Burial Clothing in Eerie Colorado.
In support of the release, Crusadist has a string of shows booked in the surrounding states in the midwest region and have teamed up with Mikael Parks of World Forge Booking & Touring to work on tour dates beginning March 20- April 6, 2020.
