CRIMSON CULT is the band around the former STYGMA IV members Günter Maier and Alex Hilzensauer.
After the split of STYGMA IV, Günter and Alex always stayed in close contact and never lost the joy of playing music together. With Peter "Beda" Bachmayer and Walter Stuefer they found the right musicians to bring their musical ideas to the point. From stygmaesque powermetal to highspeedparts and doomparts as well
CRIMSON CULT reflects the preferred music of Günter and Alex.
For the fact that Peter "Beda" Bachmayer is one of the best drummers around with no technical limitations, it's easy to compose the right metalsongs. Walter Stuefer completed the band with his outstanding metalvoice and a lot of live experience.
Within the first 3 weeks of the existence of CRIMSON CULT, the band wrote ten new songs which were recorded during autumn 2008.
In May 2009 the first selftitled cd was released worldwide.
The pressreviews were from very good to overwhelming, and the band worked on new material for months.
CRIMSON CULT were recording the new songs during 2010 and in 2011 Pure Steel Records signed the band and will release the new album “Tales Of Doom” in March 2012.
“Tales Of Doom” tells different fortunes in every song and marks the heaviest output in the career of Günter and Alex, and the history of CRIMSON CULT.
