"The Last Of My Kind" moves through epic and melodic atmospheres, maintaining the tension high with a sharp and creative guitar sound matched by one of the most impressive vocal performances in today's metal music. This album is destined to be a CLASSIC heavy metal release for the years to come. Crescent Shield began in 2000, originally as a side project for then-Onward vocalist Michael Grant and then-Destiny's End guitarist Daniel DeLucie. When Onward disbanded in 2003, Grant and DeLucie decided to convert their project into a full band. They completed the line-up with drummer Craig Anderson (ex-Ignite/Engine) and bassist Melanie Sisneros (ex-New Eden/The Iron Maidens/ Sinergy), two veterans of the Los Angeles music scene. Crescent Shield's sound, tight and fierce, is the sum of years and years spent playing, living, and breathing Heavy Metal Music - born and developed by true Heavy Metal musicians capable of recreating and further expanding the glorious sound of the US Metal school.
