The Crusaders started in the beautiful city of Dresden in Saxony/Germany around 1999 and were actually supposed to be a studio band. However, soon the stages of the world were calling and we decided to do the whole thing properly which meant that Timo and Thorsten had to find some musicians – which were Marph and Sandro, who plays in a couple of HM bands. After a couple of gigs for example for Live & Loud in Belgium we went to the studio to record our first album called ‚In Search of the holy grail‘ Unfortunately two of our band left us but were soon replaced by Hubi on bass and Thilo on the drums. With our new line up we carried on playing gigs and started a great tradition of playing regularly in Brno (Czech Republic) which consists of some memorable concerts. Meanwhile we had enough material together to enter a recording studio a second time to record our second CD ‚Crusade to nowhere‘ which was also released on vinyl. In June 2006 our album ‚The Anger Inside‘ was released by Randale Records and it turned out to be our best album until now. However, the upcoming ‚Throwing Down the Gauntlet‘ will bring you soon some great new Oi! tunes from us. It’s hard to describe the style we are playing but Oi! or streetpunk are labels we can happily live with and since the members of the band come mostly from a Skinhead background we are still quite attached to the scene.
