NEWS: Japan’s Crystal Lake Find ‘True North’ on Artery Recordings


Unless you’ve been living under a rock in the middle of the desert, you’ve likely heard–or heard of–Japanese Metalcore/Post-Hardcore group Crystal Lake. This past week the band announced the release of their forthcoming album, True North, on December 2nd through Artery Recordings. Few bands can say they’ve been growing for over a decade and a half, but Crystal Lake are, without a doubt, one of them. Alongside the announcement, the band released the music video for the captivating and energetic debut single, “Omega,” which can be viewed below!

The band had the following to say about their forthcoming effort:

Before we started writing this album, we all knew this record would define who we are, where we stand and where we are heading. No matter how things around us change, we are who we are and we’ve always headed the same direction and it never changes. As I have written in the lyrics of “True North,” this record shows how we live and how we die.
