Almost a year after their first full-length album “Valley Of The Kings”, the Swiss Old School Metaller CRASHTIME releases their new single/video ‘Black Tied Deceiver’ today.
As usual, Crashtime offer full concentrated metal power in the style of the 80s/90s, but with influences of today’s metal. The song tells the story of Black Tied Deceivers, who are responsible for arms trade, human trafficking, and other illegal activities.
The band made huge efforts into this record and the modern power loaded lyric video reflects both, the violence that underlies the Black Tied Deceivers, and the bad feelings of the victims – mirroring the events. These kinds of stories are characteristic for CRASHTIME, because they often touch on current or social topics, but always with wide scope for personal interpretations.
CRASHTIME has established a reputation for their old-school metal in the Swiss metal scene. People are relegated back to the 80s/90s, but with powerful sound and a modern touch. So the many old school metal fans are able to hear something new again.

The line-up of CRASHTIME didn’t get together by chance, because three out of the five band members knew each other since teenage years. The foundation for the current line-up was laid between 1985 and 1987. Through the years it became a consistent old-school metal band, who was successfully performing live during the last 14 years. Based on this long-termed friendship, the band is a well-rehearsed team. Endless classic Metal power, that’s the elixir, which fans and friends are longing for. Old and new songs invite the audience to sing along and join in. So every gig becomes a big party and leaves satisfied spectators at home. CRASHTIME are already looking forward to the covid-free time and to be back on stage soon! CRASHTIME 2022
