The Crüxshadows initially self-released two albums under the imprint name Black Widow Music between 1992 and 1996. Those titles were Night Crawls In... and Telemetry of A Fallen Angel. In 1997, they signed a deal with Nesak International/Kado Records to give Telemetry of A Fallen Angel a full commercial release, as well as an option for a future album. Nesak eventually sold their rights to Dancing Ferret Discs and Mere Mortal Records. Mere Mortal Records went out of business prior to releasing any albums by The Crüxshadows. Dancing Ferret Discs released a number of The Crüxshadows titles over the following ten years. In July 2008, Dancing Ferret Discs announced that it was becoming a catalog label and while existing titles would remain in print, the label would not be releasing new albums. Rather than sign a deal with another label, The Crüxshadows started their own label in mid-2009, in cooperation with several established labels and distributors in different markets worldwide. Their new label was named Wishfire Records and their first release was "Quicksilver", which hit the shelves in the USA on September 8, 2009. The song became their fourth consecutive single to reach the top 10 on the Billboard Hot Dance Singles Charts, and their third to occupy the No. 1 position.
Through much of their history, the band has toured the festival circuit in Europe. The band has not undertaken a large scale tour of North America since the 2008 tour in support of the "Immortal" EP. They continue to play annual single shows in Atlanta and the occasional appearances elsewhere.
Lyrics and concepts
Much of The Crüxshadows' music is based on Greek and Egyptian mythology, including symbolic references to a number of mythical figures, and many of their lyrics deal with the concept of God.
