Founded by drummer Chrisafis Tantanozis, even since the first years Crystal Tears has proven to be a persistent, innovative & unstoppable force, having achieved the possession of good song-writing ability. Their previous testimony "Hellmade" was nominated No1 best Massacre Records' album on its year of release. Five music videos were released involving also Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (ex-Guns N' Roses, Sons Of Apollo etc.) & actors Lew Temple (of The Walking Dead fame) & Lou Taylor Pucci (Evil Dead). The album initiated their first european tour (with Mystic Prophecy), followed by their own headline greek tour & a few more extended shows with Firewind/ex-Ozzy Osbourne's Gus G.

Crystal Tears have always been original. And this unique blend of dynamics in aggressiveness & harmony has been introducing 'em continually to new audiences all over the world.
