Crystal Lake True North Album Cover

I would love to tell you we use some scientific rubix of scoring to find our "Band of the Week" each week, but the fact is as I scroll through the more than 500 pieces of music we get each week that would be impossible. The truth is... when I open something and it kicks my ass more then anyone else, they get the nod. The nod this week went to "Crystal Lake" for that very reason. I clicked on their promo, the young men in the photos turned into beasts when the music started, and before I knew it a couple hours of my time was invested in them. When metal hits you in the soul like that, you know it's good. Fuck science, who needs a matrix when you have bands like Crystal Lake. - Martell

Crystal Lake signed to Artery Recordings in 2015 and released their third full-length album, The Sign. Their first major US release captivated audiences, doubling their international fanbase and further reinforcing their hometown following.

With their new record, Crystal Lake is bound to solidify themselves as a household name, both at home and internationally. True North will be released via Artery Recordings on November 30th.
