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 - released on August 2nd 2019 via MASSACRE RECORDS! The album includes a total of 20 tracks on 2 CDs - there are 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. 

Stefan Kaufmann was 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! Grab it here!

Shocking HELLvetia video?

Here it is: The video for HELLvetia of the upcoming album “2020“. You have to be logged in to Youtube to verfy your age in order to watch die video. Please use the oppurtunity and like the clip on youtube and leave us a comment.

The HELLvetia video features scences from the great collaboration with the movie Madi Heidi. check it out ;-).

The genius introduction of the song is owed to the Swiss Yodel club “Echo vom Glauberg“. Many heartfelt thanks for the awesome Collaboration!

You can pre-order the album: here!

New video coming soon

Hey Crystalheads

Our new video for the song #HELLVETIA will be released next week. Are you as excited as we are? The video will probably surprise you, maybe even irritate you, because it’s a little different than what you’re used to get from Crystal Ball.

Of course there is a band performance with great scenes, but also a story. Namley the lyrics, fused with an upcoming movie that will hit the theaters in 2021. We’re really happy and proud about the collaboration with the director and the possibilty to promote that movie. Therefore we used scenes from the trailer of that movie in our musicvideo, which may be disturbing on it’s own. BUT – this movie is a persiflage,. an action adventure horror comedy. So don’t take it too seriously.

Look forward to the video and let us know what you think ! We’re excited to hear it.

Best regards
Scott, Marcel, Cris, Steven und Tony.
