The Crest (Norway) A band from oslo, playing female fronted gothic rock with catchy melodies, massive guitars and a soothing female voice. They were formed in 1996 by Nell and Kristian Sigland. After some name and line-up changes the band decided on the name "THE CREST" in 1999, after recording their second demo. From this time the band developed their own, characteristic sound. In 2001 The Crest recorded their first release, "Letters from Fire", in France, together with Terje Refsnes (producer of Tristania, Carpathian Forest, The Sins of thy Beloved).
