|“Zion is simply fantastic and it’s not hard to see why Crossfaith are slowing increasing in popularity and getting their name out there in more and more countries, my only quarm with the EP is that it should be longer! It’s only a matter of time before you’ll be seeing their name up in lights.” 9/10 Alternative Reviews“Zion is a mind-blowingly brilliant EP that
perfectly introduces you into the brutally heavy, exciting and electronic-inspired world of Crossfaith.” - Alt Soundswww.crossfaith.jp www.facebook.com/
As one of the fastest rising bands on the UK hard rock and metal circuits for some years (Kerrang! ‘Best British Newcomer’ award 2012, #27 debut in the UK Album Charts), the Sheffield quintet which features lead vocalist Lawrence Taylor, Sean Long – guitar, Mat Welsh – guitar/vocals, Aaran Mckenzie – bass guitar and Adam Savage – drums have received critical acclaim across the pages of British staple music publications Kerrang!, Metal Hammer and Rock Sound, with regular airplay on Radio 1, Scuzz and Kerrang! TV.
Produced by Carl Brown (Fightstar, Rise to Remain), the group’s album ‘This Is The Six’ is a genre-defying masterpiece that draws from the contemporary intensity and unshakeable authenticity of post-hardcore, the progressive song-structure and unrelenting aggression of metal, a keen ear for melody and a raw impenetrable passion that makes it relatable to anyone with a love for guitar driven rock music.
‘This Is The Six’ Deluxe Edition is currently available on iTunes.
