Formed in July of 2017, Crusadist began their relentless pursuit of sonic decimation. After countless auditions and failed attempts to find a second guitarist,
they decided to record a 3-song demo to showcase the style and to find the missing piece.
The recording took place at Iron Hand Audio in Chicago Illinois and was recorded by Dan Klein. Guitarist Luke Sever agreed to help with the recording and went on to write and record the solos on the demo. Once the demo was finished, it was obvious that the search was over.
The group then went on to open for national and international acts such as Exmortus, Hatchet, Kalmah, Vreid, Nile, Terrorizer, and Vital Remains while traveling to the nearby states to spread their vicious mix of Death Metal, Black Metal, and Thrash Metal.
