When East Texas is mentioned at all, most people think of piney woods, small towns and quaint county fairs. No one ever expects the area to produce any heavy metal bands, and especially not a heavy metal band like Crimson Thirst. Crimson Thirst is a band with its roots firmly grounded in the classic metal bands of the past, such as Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and even Helloween. They have taken the sound of their influences and are working to make it into a sound uniquely their own. They have opened for Helstar, Solitude Aeturnus, Hallow's Eve and other great bands.
