Crystal Age

Crystal Age was a short-lived band led by guitarist/vocalist Oscar Dronjak, who formed the band after leaving his previous group Ceremonial Oath. Their one album, Far Beyond Divine Horizons, was a fairly frenzied Swedish death metal album, with some impressive guitar work and inventive rhythms on display, though Dronjak's higher-pitched (for death metal), scratchy vocals didn't really add much to the mix. Dronjak and bassist Fredrik Larsson went on to HammerFall in due time and Crystal Age was done.
