The Cruxshadows

Pushing goth-rock further away from its cliched Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson motifs, The Cruxshadows (pronounced Croo-shadows) were formed by Rogue, Sean Flanagan, and Tim Curry while attending Florida State University in 1992. Being fans of Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, Peter Murphy, and other synth-powered new wave artists, the band wanted to capture twinging electric guitar and electric violin to compose a shimmering dance-like sound. Their lyrical imagery is passionate and enigmatic, similarly resonant to fellow darkwavers such as Faith and the Muse, Covenant, and Black Tape for a Blue Girl.

The Cruxshadows released their cassette debut Night Crawls In in 1993, and their first CD, Telemetry of a Fallen Angel arrived three years later. Curry and Flanagan left the band in 1997 to be replaced by Trevor Brown, Chris Brantley, and Kevin Page. The Cruxshadows' lush blend of thick industrial sounds and elegant darkwave aesthetics were strengthened at this point, but Brown withdrew from the band due to personal reasons. Rachel McDonnell stepped in, with Brown only being minimally involved.

The band was signed to Nesak International/Kado Records but were shipped over to Dancing Ferret Records and Mere Mortal Records after Nesak was bought out; Mere Mortal Records folded in mid-1999. The limited edition Until the Voices Fade and the group's third full-length album, The Mystery of the Whisper, were both released in 1999, and the band toured nationally, extensively playing dates around the Midwest and East Coast. In mid-2000, the group released the Paradox Addendum EP. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi

Seriously, Pandora? I could write a better Bio, just by using Google for freak's sake. And you need to seriously update your discography on this band, and a few others that I've read.

John Ringo mentioned this group in a novel, and I am so glad he did, or I would have missed out on some really great music.
I kiss the liquid night.

@David it's funny you mention Reznor selling out because he grew up. In all reality he started releasing albums independentl y AND he gave them out for free, all at the same time encouraging is fans to download all his old music illegally. So I don't know where you get sold-out from, but you obviously don't understand the term.

I don't know why NIN and MM had to be dismissed as cliched in this artist review; I like all 3, and most Cruxshadows fans I know are, so insulting more successful bands that share fans seems a little stupid.
I have to say no matter what is said on here they put out a good sound sorry but i was a big NIN fan up until trent sold himself out looking like your dad at disneyworld
Eat Poo bobonnit Loser.
Ho hum. Another copycat no talent bunch of Goth losers.
And they have so little of Cruxshadows' music. There should be at least ten albums up there. (I think they have fifteen out right now.)
They are darkwave... And it ain't pronounced Croo-shadows ! It's Cruise-shado w s ! I know Rogue! Doofuses!
love this band
Found these folks via a John Ringo novel. Wish they'd come to Australia! To my ears, they fit well into the Darkwave genre.
If they're going to truncate the bio so much, they should just put in a link to the CXS's wiki page.
agree with starshadow42 . NIN is original industrial, pure stuff. manson was/is total poseur attempt at getting at the true goth subculture, he was attempt at mainstream co-opting of the genre.
and cruxshadows is great, totally cool part of the synth/goth portion of the scene
ok, um NIN and Manson goth NOT!!!. This band has unrelenting talent and Rogue is not only a great performer (as the whole band) but his song writing skills get better and better. I have most of their songs on my Ipod.
tristanhi88
cool sound like it whoever downs it can stay in the closet n live in boredom land
Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson is not Goth Rock! It is even questioned if the Cruxshadows are really gothic. I think at least the first part needs to be changed.
And CXS has I think eleven albums, not the small amount that they show here.
To all haters of this band, YOU F**KING HAVE NO IDEA WHO THIS IS!!!!! Cruxshadows is pronounced Cruise-Shado w s Not Croo-Shadows Damn whoever does the f**king editing for Pandora must suck... And all of you whom think that this band hasn't skill, whatever, Rogue is a person. He has been for a long time, and He's also been a damn good artist, making albums for almost twenty years. He's 40, and he's still good at making Darkwave that's not gothy, emo, and stupid. If I were to listen to anybody
who ran a techno station, I'd shout at them if they didn't add this monumentally talented band.
Hahahahaha. Manson...NIN . . . G o t h rock...very funny Pandora. And yet...I am not amused.

I've seen Cruxshadows live several times. NOTE TO PANDORA GODS:What is with this wierd mini-bio?Thi s band didn't end in 2000, which is evidenced the by discography shown above. I was lucky enough to be able to interact with the group up close and personal at a festival. A friend had recommended them, and they are as down to earth in person as they are ethereal in their music. Rogue especially has a personality that he shares openly with fans, in person or on stage. BTW, where is DreamCypher?
Had the opportunity to see Cruxshadows live in 2002 at a club in Boston. The place was packed and man they put on an amazing show!

Also, they even have the pronunciatio n wrong. Its *Cru-Shadows * . The *x*s silent. But, however you say it, theyre still awesome and I cant believe on the *Skinny Puppy* bio they dont get a mention either. This claims to be from the *music* genome aka the history of all music and yet they cant even get the bios right?! That should be a *non-issue* if theyre going directly from the *real* music archives. Once again, the internet lies and another great bands ruined due to its ****ing idiocy!!!! V_V

The description makes me laugh. NIN and Manson aren't close to Goth Rock. The best way to classify The Cruxshadows is Darkwave which is a far cry to describe their genre bending brilliance. If you read any good bio, even a Wiki bio, it will state that Rogue got a lot of the influence for his bands sound from a band formed in 1982 named, Skinny Puppy. They're also, genre benders. Some call them Industrial, but that's a hard sell for classifying some, if not most of SP's music.
I don't believe I've found a band with more thought and spirit invoking and mind bending and wise lyrics all blended in with a nice ear candy box.
Next time they show in Oregon I'm there..

Cruxshadows - Love this Band. They are amazing and the music is so interesting you never know which way it will lead you too.
ardentluma
Cruxshadows - one of my favorite bands of all time. Amazing music.
So little of their discovery here it's downright pathetic.
this is my absolute favorite band. I've got all of their albums.

Just heard Deception for the first time. Sounds like I need to get my butt to Dragon*Con.. .

Another great band I discovered at Dragon*Con. Got to meet the members personally, Rogue signed the CDs personally, they had an open booth to meet with and talk to fans, and truly seemed to enjoy the interaction. Adore the music, the show, the band. "Ariadne" is personal my favorite right now. I wish all their albums were listed here. I think you can get the albums from their website, if you cannot find them locally.
stevetanya7
This is a great band. I really like their vocals.
seminal...
On my "Must See Live" list.
anyone know where I can find albums in orlando Florida for cruxshadows? I used to be able to find them at fye but not the last time i checked.
Very nice... sounds like they're past their prime with members leaving, though.
Oh, and I hate to tell you, but to many people, Amy Lee is the epiotome of goth embarrassmen t .
Im from Tally, so i got to see them before they hit it off. In a little sh*t hole called the Beta Bar. Its interesting so see rogue hang from the rafters,knoc k a table over getting down and then do his crowd stocking thing.

They always perform at DragonCon in Atlanta, GA over the Labor Day holiday. It's usually Saturday night. It's worth a day's entry fee just to see their concert; you have to wait in line almost all day but again, it's completely worth it. Rogue walks out into the crowd and sings on a chair. He was singing on that chair just two people away from me. It was so amazing to see him so closely! The crowd respected his space too, that's something I think is pretty rare.

I desperately love this band, and equally as desperately miss Rachel on violin. The two new violinists lack her fire. Please, Rogue, if you can, ask them to FEEL what they're playing on those violin bones! I've been lucky enough to see CSX twice in concert; I hope they do an American tour again, but suspect it's nowhere near as profitable for them as is Europe. Rogue writes the best music and gives the best hugs. This is as far from "self-import a n t " goth music as it gets.

I got to see them perform at DragonCon. It doesn't mention it in their bio, but Rachel left the band. I was lucky enough to see her last performance at the Con.
WEEW, they got Quicksilver! it's a step forward at least.

It's disappointin g that Pandora has such a large gap between Paradox Addendum and The Mystery of the Whisper - and neither Dreamcypher nor Fortress in Flames seem to merit a mention. This is a band that has played around with its style a great deal over the years, and it shows. Also of interest is Quicksilver, which was released just last month, and doesn't sound a thing like Immortal.
Need more of their albums Pandora! they've got 7 or more last I knew.

one of my favorite bands though.
The description cracks me up because neither Manson nor Nine Inch Nails are Goth-Rock.
The Band Members are really Nice and cool people to chill with. I love them.
I must admit I didn't care for them at first, but now that I've heard more of their songs, I kinda like them.
No, they are deep, mysterious, melancolic goth hard feeling
