CRESCENT SHIELD: Songwriting For Next Album Nearing Completion

California's traditional melodic metal band CRESCENT SHIELD, which features the talents of former DESTINY'S END guitarist Dan DeLucie and former ONWARD vocalist Michael Grant, is nearing completion of songwriting for its sophomore record. The as-yet-untitled album "promises the same high quality songwriting, tight musicianship, and true metal spirit as their worldwide critically acclaimed debut 'The Last of My Kind' [2006]," according to a press release. "However, this time the band promises a more complex record with more intricate riffing, a powerful speedier approach, and more epic song structures while maintaining the strong melodic hooks and passionate delivery their fans have come to expect. Some of the song titles follow: 'Lifespan', 'Under Cover of Shadows', '10,000 Midnights Ago', 'The Grand Horizon', 'Temple of the Empty' and 'Tides of Fire'. Five of the songs have been recorded in demo form at the band’s home studio. The band plans to record the album sometime early next year with well-respected metal producer Bill Metoyer. The record will once again be released on Italian label Cruz Del Sur Music."

CRESCENT SHIELD jas been confirmed for the Keep It True X festival, set to take place April 5, 2008 at Tauberfrankenhalle in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany.

CRESCENT SHIELD's lineup is completed by drummer Craig Anderson (ex-IGNITE, ENGINE) and bassist Melanie Sisneros (ex-NEW EDEN, THE IRON MAIDENS, SINERGY), two veterans of the Los Angeles music scene.
