Customer Reviews

Excellent music and a great band to see live.

Being raised in the 80's and a fan of "dark wave", I stumbled on The Cruxshadows via another music service. One listen to their music, and I was hooked. My favorite tracks on Ethernaut are (3) Citadel, (2) Winter Born and (1) Cassandra. If you like creative, meaningful lyrics, Rogue was on his "A" game when he wrote Cassandra.

Right after this album was originally released, I had the opportunity to see them perform live in Jacksonville, FL. It was a small club, but they played it like it was a stadium seating 30,000 people. Fantastically creative in their stage performance and choreography, The Cruxshadows hold your attention from the first beat to the last. I'll see them any chance I can.

The Cruxshadows are a must-hear/must-see for any fan of The Cure, The Damned or early Ministry.

Favorite album by my favorite band.

I've been continually drawn to the Cruxshadows over the past couple of years. Initially, their music had to grow on me a bit, but the lyrics were what brought me back, again and again. Cruxshadows radio on Pandora is worthless, plenty of other people can try to make music that sounds something like them, but I have yet to find a band with such deep, introspective lyrics that strike anything close to the emotional chord with me that they do.

As for Ethernaut in particular, It is in the middle of their evolution as a band to this date. This version is newly remastered, with very subtle but positive changes. Notable tracks to me are Citadel and Winterborn, both of them telling the tales of epic struggles of good versus evil, and the sometimes terrible costs that must be paid in order to defend the right. Waiting To Leave, to me at least evokes a degree of self analysis and motivation for change in life that is matched by no other song, save perhaps Birthday, on their DreamCypher album (also excellent.) If at first the sound doesn't necessarily agree with you, give it another listen. I find it's an acquired taste that your musical palate will learn to appreciate.

TL;DR version: Get it, it's awesome.

Best band, great album

The Cruxshadows are the band band to listen to if you love lyrics with beauty and meaning. They never fail to succeed in that. A simply great great band and album [=


Formed: 1992

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '90s, '00s

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...
