Comments the band on “The Awakening”:
"What if everything you are told is a lie? Are you ready to start accepting it? This album is an inner reflection on the origins of human kind. It is a personal view on who brought us here on Earth. It also raises questions on whether all the information and knowledge we have is true or beneficial to our journey. What if everything we are taught is wrong, wayward, a version of the truth; the personal truth of a certain group and not the objective truth? It is time for us to open our minds and hearts and to begin accepting that our origins and this place we call “home” maybe far more exotic and fantastic than what we can even begin to imagine. It is time to wake up from the deep sleep of ignorance and absolute darkness and enlighten our minds, hearts and souls and to prepare to take a step further into ascension."
Just recently Crossbones released the official video “Realigning The Truth”, taken from the new album, watch it here: https://youtu.be/PeTi4DX9XqY
Crossbones is the most recognized metal act in Albania and the only band from the mid 90’s that still keeps going, today stronger than ever. Their album “WWIII” is making quite a buzz since its launch in January 13th 2017. The album was produced, mixed and mastered by Tommy Talamanca (Sadist) at Nadir Music Studios. “WWIII” combines American thrash metal influences with a dark sound and typical Est European sonorities. The result is an album created with the intention of hit hard the ears of the listener without losing melodic passages and “catchy” riffs, and where the recurring use of both English and Albanian languages marks a new way in the European post-thrash genre. Among countless gigs and performances, CROSSBONES have played with Rock and Metal giants such as Ian Paice, legendary drummer of Deep Purple and as a direct support act for Greek Black Metal legends of Rotting Christ. Furthermore the band has headlined many concerts and festivals in Italy, Greece, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Kosovo, toured in Baltics (Estonia and Latvia), Ukraine and headlined Balkan Metal Meeting 4 Tuzla/Bosnia, April 27-28 2018, and more. Crossbones' new effort, “The Awakening” is released digitally on July 12th, via Alpha Omega Records, produced, mixed and mastered by Alex Azzali at Alpha Omega Studios.
