The Cruxshadows

This is one of my favorite bands (top 3 are Korn, Otep and The Cruxshadows). They really are worth checking out.

The Crüxshadows is an Dark Electro group from Florida. Their sound is made up of a combination of moody male vocals, electric violin, guitar, and synth. Centered around vocalist and songwriter Rogue, The Crüxshadows blend 1980s inspired synthpop and modern rock with introspective lyrics.

Much of the Cruxshadows' music is based on Greek and Egyptian Mythology. Their work includes symbolic references to a number of mythical figures and many of their lyrics deal with the concept of God. According to the band's singer Rogue, the inspiration for much of The Cruxshadows' material came from a five tiered dream. The primary albums together form a series unofficially called the Angel Cycle. This cycle uses myth, legend, and spiritual elements to address more personal issues that are characterized by their universal significance. The lyrics operate as re-invented parables in many cases, and Rogue has openly stated that he intends Cruxshadows to impact people's lives individually through music.
