The Swiss melodic hard rock/metal outfit CRYSTAL BALL is celebrating the band's 20th anniversary with the release of "2020" - their first ever best-of album - due out on August 2nd 2019 via MASSACRE RECORDS! The album will include a total of 20 tracks on 2 CDs - there will be 10 re-recorded and newly interpreted songs from the band's first decade, and 10 melodic metal tracks from the band's second decade, which were either re-recorded, newly arranged and/or enhanced with additional recordings. All songs were chosen based on results of fan polls and streaming analyses. The complete track list is available below.

Stefan Kaufmann is once again responsible for the production, recordings and mastering - and along with Mattes for the mixing at ROXX Studio. Thomas Ewerhard Artwork is responsible for the cover artwork. "2020" is an album for die-hard fans that are around since the band's early days but also for those who have barely heard of the band before. Needless to say that this album should be part of every record collection! It will be available for pre-order soon.
