Swiss hard rockers CRYSTAL BALL have inked a deal with Massacre Records.

Armed with a brand new lineup featuring a great new vocalist, Steven Mageney, they're working on their seventh album for a late 2013 release.

Everything started back in 1995, when CRYSTAL BALL was a cover band named CHERRY PIE. They used their stage experiences as foundation for CRYSTAL BALL, who soon became one of Europe's major forces in the hard rock genre. Their debut album, "In The Beginning", was released in 1999, followed by the even more successful "Hard Impact" in 2000. They soon signed with Nuclear Blast and toured with such bands as U.D.O., DORO and AXXIS.

After the release of its fifth album, "Timewalker", CRYSTAL BALL embarked on its first headlining tour with THUNDERSTONE.

In 2007, CRYSTAL BALL signed with AFM Records and released its sixth album, "Secrets".
