Short Biography :CRISTAL GENRES
Cristal was founded March 2004 by guitarist Michael Paradjian and his dream finally came true with today’s line-up completed in July 2005 with the arrival of new singer Jérôme Leduc who brought the missing ingredient to the band. Since the beginning, the musical direction was turned to melodic and fast metal, more precisely neoclassical power metal with little progressive tendency. Members of Cristal were selected following their technical skills, age and human qualities. Sacha Swierczynski joined the band in summer 2004 as keyboards player. In september 2004, they were joined by drummer Benjamin Elleboudt and in February 2005, Hiro Onishi arrived as bass player.
About their first demo :
Here We Are was recorded and mixed with a very little budget in only three days time. Many instrumental embellishments were not recorded because of lack of time. However, the members of the band do believe that it gives a very good idea of what they are able to create and what Cristal could sound like with a more professional recording.
For those reasons, we decided to send you Here We Are to have your opinion (chronic, interview, review or anything else).
